Russians Rolls

  • In a small bowl, combine tahini and mayonnaise.

  • Slice the rolls open lengthwise, spread with tahini mayo and sprinkle with chopped spring onion.

  • Heat olive in a pan over moderate heat and fry the Russians until brown.

  • Place the fried Russians in the hot dog rolls.

Preparing The Pickle Jar

  • Wash the jar and lid in warm, soapy water, then rinse.

  • In a deep pot, place the jar right-side-up without the lid and submerge the jar in warm water, ending about 2 cm above the top of the jar.

  • Adjust to high heat and bring water to a rolling boil.

  • Allow the jar to boil for 10 minutes, then remove the pot from the heat.

  • Remove the sterilised jar from the hot water (with a jar lifter or tongs) for immediate use or store in hot water for up to an hour until needed.

  • N.B. The jar must be hot in order to withstand the temperature of the hot pickle or it will break.

Chilli & Carrot Pickle

  • In a deep pot over low heat, add water, vinegar and sugar.

  • Stir until the sugar dissolves, then add the rest of the ingredients.

  • Adjust to high heat and allow to boil for 10 minutes, watching the pot to ensure it doesn’t boil over.

  • Remove from the heat and pour the hot pickle into a hot, sterilised jar (the jar will break if cold) and close with a lid.

  • Allow to cool and refrigerate (can be stored in the fridge for up to 2 months).


  • Top each Russian roll with spicy pickle and serve alongside pickle syrup and tahini mayo for dipping.
