Cooking Tips

  • The choice of vegetables is open-ended. Try adding mushrooms, sweet corn, peas and so on.
  • You can toast the sandwich using butter, ghee or oil.
  • I used only green capsicum here. Red and yellow capsicum can also be used.
  • Do not overcook the vegetables. They should remain crunchy.
  • The quantity of spice powders can be increased or decreased as per your preferences.
  • Toasting should be done over low to medium flame to avoid burning.
