Veggie Sandwiches

Veg sandwiches are perfect for a tea party / breakfast/ fulfilling and nutritious kid’s Tiffin or lunch packs. These require a little preparation before but while serving, they take a few minutes only. I’m gonna share three of these today. The spinach paneer sandwich is my favorite and my daughter likes the cheesy one.

Spinach Panner Sandwich:
(paneer is curd cheese made by curdling boiling milk with lemon juice or vinegar)
Boil spinach in a pressure cooker and then spread it on plate to get at a normal temperature. Blend it with a handy blender and keep it in a thick consistency (do not make a paste). Put a pan on fire and add oil to it. Now add ginger and garlic paste (one table spoon) and sauté it a for 1 minute and then add coriander powder(1/2 table spoon) and red chilli (1/4 th table spoon to it and stir it a little bit. Add spinach and panner (both in equal quantities, approx.  6 table spoons each) to this and keep stirring for another minute and add salt to taste. Take the pan off the fire and let the mixture get cooled. You can refrigerate this mixture and can use it as when you wanna eat it (this mix can go for two days if stored in closed container in fridge, do not put in freezer).
Now, whenever you wanna eat a sandwich, put this mixture between bread toasts and enjoy the nutritious green and white combo, full of vitamins, minerals, protein and above all good health. You can give this to kids in their tiffins.

Veggies and Yoghurt sandwich
The hung curd is used in this recipe which can be made by hanging curd in a muslin cloth for 2-3 hrs. Add finely chopped - onion, tomato, cucumber/bell pepper and walnuts to the hung curd and finally add some powdered black pepper and salt to taste. This mixture can be stored in fridge for 3 days.
Whenever you wanna make a sandwich, place this mixture in between the toasts and let your taste buds enjoy no guilt creamy taste. Ummmmmmmmmm………..…yummy.

Cheesy bites
This is kid’s favorite yummy cheesy grilled sandwich with veggies like tomato, carrot and onion.
Just put a cheese slice on one bread and then spread some finely chopped -onion, tomato and carrot (boiled) in proportions of 1:2:3 respectively. Sprinkle a little bit of black pepper, salt and oregano to it and place a bread to cover it up. Grill it in a sandwich maker and get your kids ready for a cheesy treat.

Hope u like these ones……………yum yum …………: ) agoodstuff.
