Veg Cheese Sandwich

Sandwiches are best for picnics, kids lunch  boxes, snack time or even for any type of get-togethers. There is no specific recipe for a sandwich. Its just upto your taste buds and the ingredients available in your pantry. This time I wanted to make this for Prajwal's "Tummy Time" at school. For the past few days he fell in love with cheese. So I made it bit cheesy. You can adjust it as per your preference. Similarly I prefer using wheat bread as it is more healthier than the white bread, so wheat or white is again your choice :-)


Wheat bread - 4 slices
Carrot - 1, grated
Cabbage - 2 tbsp approximately, finely chopped
Capsicum - 1 or 2 tbsp, finely chopped
Onion - 1, thinly sliced
Tomato - 1, finely chopped
Coriander leaves - a handful, finely chopped
Pepper powder - 1/2 tsp
Garam masala - 1/4 tsp
Salt - a pinch
Ginger garlic paste - 1/2 tsp
Cheese - 1/2 cup shredded  (OR)
Cheese cube - 1, grate it while making the sandwich
Oil - 1/2 tsp

  1. Prepare the stuffing first. Heat a pan, add 1/2 tsp of oil. Once heated, add the chopped onions, saute for few seconds. Then add the ginger garlic paste. Saute until the raw smell goes off. Now add the chopped tomatoes, carrots, capsicum and cabbage. Add salt, garam masala and the pepper powder. Saute for 2 mins. By this time the vegetables would have turned a bit soft. Turn off the flame, sprinkle the coriander leaves, mix well and set aside.
  2. Take a slice of bread. Top it off with some grated cheese. If you are using a cheese cube, you can directly grate it to the bread surface.
  3. Spread few tsps of the prepared stuffing evenly over the cheese. Again top it up with grated cheese. Close it with other bread slice and press gently.
  4. Toast it in the greased Sandwich maker for 2-3 minutes or as per the instructions provided by your sandwich maker.  If you do not have a sandwich make, no worries.. you can toast it in the tawa too!!
  5. Enjoy with tomato ketchup.
