Crunchy Bhindi Grilled Sandwiches
As'Salamualaikum Wa'rahmatullahi Wa'Barakatuhu
Sandwiches?? Oh yess I love sandwiches that too grilled one...yumm!!
And today I wanna share Healthy Grilled Sandwich with Crunchy Bhindi filling. Chatpati, little spicy, little tangy with some crunchiness. Okra/bhindi with nutty flavor was something very new and worth trying. Recipe of Nutty okra was shared on fb-group by Rakesh Sharma who is an excellent cook. Make it at breakfast or evening snack, for kids or adults. Kids who complains eating veggies, will definitely enjoy these sandwiches. Ideal for lunch boxes too...
Lady finger is my favorite veggie and this twist to it gave a complete makeover. Placing a cheese slice in the sandwich will make the kids drool.
I am sure Veg-lovers will rave about the simply fabulous nutty flavor of this hearty grilled sandwich. It goes so well with a dash of ketchup and layer of tangy green chutney. For healthy reason I used brown bread.
