My Notes:

  • You can add any legumes of your choice.
  • You can either toast and make sandwich and use sandwich maker.
  • I used white bread, you can use wheat or multigrain bread too.
  • Always use a flat laddle to press the sandwich while toasting , this ensures even browning.
  • This sandwich has to be served immediately else it will become soggy.
  • The mild sweetness gives a nice flavour to the salad so I would recommend adding sugar.
