Everyday sandwich: For a healthier you.

Off-late I am trying out a lot of sandwiches. Here is one such sandwich I prepare. I got this recipe from the Sanjeev Kapoor's Khana Khazana! Made few modifications according to the ingredients what I had handy.

Here is the recipe for you.

Preparation time: 10mins
Cooking time: 5-7mins
Serves: 2

Ingredients: (Makes 4 sandwiches)
Sandwich bread slices: 8 nos (Use any bread of your choice. I have used white bread here)
Sliced cucumber
Sliced tomatoes
Boiled & sliced beetroot (optional)
Sliced onions,
A slice of cheese for each sandwich
Salt & pepper for seasoning
Butter: 1 tsp, for each sandwich

For the spread:
Green chutney: 1 tsp*
Tomato ketchup: 1 tsp*
*For each sandwich 


  • Take a slice of bread, add the green chutney & the tomato ketchup. Spread both of them evenly on the bread.

  • Top it up with the sliced vegetables of your choice. Sprinkle the salt & the pepper over the vegetables.

  • Add a cheese slice.
  • Cover it up with another slice of bread. 
  • Add around a tsp of butter to the griddle/tava/tawa or griller. Place the sandwich over the butter & cook it on a medium-low heat on both sides until golden brown. 
  • Remove from the griddle. Serve it hot with a dip of your choice. Enjoy!

Feel free to use any vegetable of your choice. I have added carrots, capsicum, raddish & many more to this basic sandwich recipe.
