Cottage Cheese Sandwich (Serves:2-4; Preparation Time: 20 minutes)

All of us have some favorite recipes, those with which  family and friends associate you with and the ones that you have perfected over a time period. I love this one, especially because these sandwiches could be served anytime:  at breakfast, as snacks, could be carried for a picnic or while travelling; the best thing still - they are easy to make, taste so fresh and are low on calories!!

So here goes one of my favorite recipes, and I urge you all to try it because you'll love it for sure, just like so many of my other friends do.

  • 200 gms low fat cottage cheese (for 4 sandwiches)
  • 8 slices of multi-grain/ brown bread
  • 1 onion, finely chopped
  • 1/2'' ginger, grated
  • 1 green chilly, finely chopped
  • Fresh coriander leaves, finely chopped
  • 1 tsp salt or, to taste
  • 3/4 tsp freshly ground black pepper
  • 1/4 tsp garam masala (optional)
  • Grate the cottage cheese in a large  bowl; to this, add finely chopped onion, green chilly, coriander leaves, ginger, salt pepper and garam masala (you could reduce or add spices to suit your taste)

  • Spread four slices of bread on a chopping board and spread the cottage cheese mix evenly, cover with other four slices and cut into half ( use a wet knife to cut the bread slices for a neat cut)

Hi, grt recipe. You can even grill these sandwiches. I even add finely chopped capsicum to the mix.
Thanks Namita, yes I grill these sandwiches sometime but prefer them with untoasted fresh bread. I am sure capsicum adds crunchiness to the sandwiches, will try this for sure...thanks for the idea.
