Bread Sandwich

Posted on Updated on

Picture 056

Bread is a tea time snack for evenings since people donot have heavy tiffin during that time . I normally prepare vegetable curry stuffed sandwiches since it will be crispy and spicy to have it during Monsoon evenings, when there is a heavy down pour. The stuffing can be prepared in advance and pushed in the refregerator and can be roasted in the sandwich roasted when needed. First of all let me prepare the stuffing. We can even prepare sandwich by stuffing it with egg and also paneer etc.

What you need to have:

1. Grated carrots – 1/4 cup

2. Grated French Beans – 1/4 cup

3. Crushed Green Peas – 1/4 cup

4. Grated Potato – 1/4 cup

5. Grated Cauliflower – 1/4 cup
