Crunchy Breakfast Sandwich

When a day begins on a healthy note, it keeps you charged for the whole day. And what better way to commence than with a healthy, crunchy and tasty breakfast !!


Ingredients :

Whole green gram sprouts - 1 cup
Boiled and grated potato - 1/2 cup
Grated carrot - 1/2 cup
Finely chopped spinach - 1/4 cup
Chopped coriander - 1/4 cup
Chili powder - 1 tsp
Salt to taste
Cumin seeds(Jeera) - 1 tsp
Garam Masala powder - 1/2 tsp
Turmeric powder - 1/4 tsp
Bread slices
Olive (or refined) Oil - 1- 2 tsps

Method :

1. Heat oil in a pan and add cumin seeds. Let crackle.

2. Now add the grated carrot and sprouts, salt to taste, turmeric powder and let cook for about 4-5 minutes. We do not want to over-cook but leave the carrots and sprouts a bit crunchy. One can add chopped capsicum at this stage as well, or even fine-chopped and blanched broccoli; in fact more vegetables the better!!!

3. Now add the chopped spinach and cook for 3-4 minutes more. Add garam masala, chili powder and mix well. Remove from heat after about 2-3 minutes and cool.

4. Toast the bread slices. Place the stuffing in between 2 slices. It is optional to add cheese spread or slices as well.
Cut and serve the sandwich as desired.
