Spinach Corn Sandwich

This one is the oldest in my draft. 🙂 Was clicked when I had not even started blogging. Today, while going through old pictures I found and thought of sharing the recipe. Since then even if i had made these sandwiches, have never clicked pictures. 😛

We all loved sandwiches. Toasted, grilled mostly preferred, but we also love the Mumbai style raw sandwiches. Sandwiches i feel, is very versatile and almost anything or everything can be used as fillings for them. Use onion,tomato and cheese and one healthy meal is ready. Also one of the best way to use up the leftover curries is stuffing them inside the bread and grilling with addition of loads of cheese.

I normally use up the leftover curry this way, and sometimes the kiddo asks for more 😉 and i realize the demand is more and supply less.:D  He sometimes suggests me to make more curry to eat sandwiches. 😛

Tried their Chikoo Chips which are crispy, without any preservatives or added color. . Not very sweet which means no much sugar added. Makes a good option for kids who are fussy eaters. Maybe this version would tempt them to try this fruit.

Chai Cake

I keep buying tea packs in spite of me not being an avid tea lover. I mean I love them in a cool weather occasionally but not the regular tea/ coffee drinker. So the other day when I was cleaning and found some masala tea powder, all I could think of is a tea cake. Yes, Tea cake and trust me as yummy as it sounds it tastes even better.

Today, I share the recipe. It’s a treat for tea and cake lovers as the combination works well. Do try and let me know how it turned for you.
