Sandwiches could be savory or sweet and can be served as breakfast, lunch or dinner or as packed food for lunch tiffins or picnic snacks.
Eating greens is very important for our health and we have got the , “Go Green Sandwiches”.
The recipe is derived from Matar Paneer ke Paranthe…(https://piquantplate.com/2018/02/26/matar-paneer-ke-paranthe/ ) Actually, the day I made those paranthas, my kiddo refused to eat the parantha and said, “i will eat sandwiches”. So, I made these sandwiches with the same filling with a moderation of adding cheese and tomatoes.
