Sandwiches are best for picnics, snack time, for kid’s party or simply for get-to-gethers. There is variety of sandwiches to choose from, plain vegetable sandwich to cheese sandwich to masala toast. Well I choose vegetable toast sandwich not for any occasion but simply for dinner. This is one of my favourite recipe on menu.
It tastes delicious with combination of vegetable and cheese plus obviously easy to make.
Preparation time: 10 minutes
Making time: 25 minutes (to make stuffing and toast sandwich)
What goes in it:
Potato, boiled & diced- 2 big sized
Carrot, boiled & diced- 1 medium sized
Peas, boiled- ½ cup
Onions, vertically sliced- 2 big sized
Capsicum, vertically sliced- 1 big sized
Cabbage, sliced- 1 cup
Ginger, finely chopped- ½ tbl spn
Garlic, finely chopped- ½ tbl spn
Green chillies, finely chopped- 1 tbl spn
Lemon juice- 1 tbl spn
Garam Masala- ¼ tbl spn
Oil- 1 ½ tbl spn
Asafoetida (Hing)- ¼ tbl spn
Salt- as per your taste
Cheese, shredded- 1 cup
Pepper powder- ½ cup
Coriander leaves, chopped- ½ cup
Butter- to apply on bread
Bread- 12 slices
How did I make it:
Cut al the required vegetables. Finely chop ginger, garlic and green chillies in chopper and make a paste.
Boil diced potatoes and carrots and peas together in a pressure cooker or in a cooking pot. Don’t make them to mushy. Once they are boiled, drain off the water and keep aside.
Now in a kadai, prepare oil for tempering. Heat the oil. As it heats up, put hing in it. Then add ginger-garlic-chilli paste and sauté it properly for about a minute. Then add onions, capsicum & cabbage to it. Also add salt, garam masala and lemon juice to it. Mix them all well. Cook it keepind the lid closed for about 5-7 minutes. Cook them till they are partially boiled/ cooked. Just make sure they don’t taste raw.
[Foodies Note: Onions, cabbage & capsicum when sautéed raw in oil with garam masala and salt gives a different flavour to sandwich as compared to normal masala toast.]
After they are cooked, add boiled veggie’s to it. Season generously till all the ingredients are mixed properly. Switch off the stove and keep aside.
Take bread slices and apply butter on one side of the bread slice. Evenly spread the prepared vegetable stuffing on it.
Top it off with shredded cheese.
Sprinkle a pinch of pepper powder and chopped coriander leaves on it.
Place the other bread slice on it and press gently.
[Foodies’ Note: Combination of cheese, pepper and coriander will work wonders for your toast.]
Toast it in a sandwich toaster till it is done. Until both the sides are turn golden brown.
Ready to be served.
