We more than often end up eating a slice of bread on a daily basis. We are apt to fill our bellies in the quickest way possible and bread is always easily available to rescue us from our hunger pangs. When we are out of office or just hanging out with friends and family – the most cheap and quick meal opted for is – sandwiches. I’m completely on your side and comprehend that our minds are self-trained to be short sighted to our temporary hunger and forget about the long term penalties.
In India, we have a lot of healthy stuff to relish over products containing harmful trans-fat, saturated fat and other cholesterol plus diabetes inducing products. Have you tried hung curd as a replacement for mayonnaise or even cheese sauce?
There are substitutes you can use – like almonds for cashews in rich main course veggies for dishes like shahi sabzi, paneer pasanda, etc., Greek yogurt or butter milk in cakes that help you to use less butter and whole milk (in fact it will be the most moist cake you will come across). Beat some thick yogurt and add 2 teaspoon of cheese spread instead of using only cheese spread with nachos. Add oats in upma, dhokla or even in cakes, like I do! This will not only enhance your health but also give you the best taste, I bet.
Today, I have a forged mayo veggie sandwich that you can enjoy with every bite and is totally guilt-free! So do try this easy, quick and simple recipe when you’re feeling uncontrollably hungry! These sandwiches have a faint taste of mayonnaise, and freshly chopped veggies offers a prefect crunch. You can prepare the curd-veggie batter in advance and store it in a fridge. Take it out before 30 Min. of consumption. This healthy sandwich will keep you content for much longer. Even your toddlers will nibble all of them and will ask for more, I’m sure. 😀
So do try this, certainly you will enjoy the taste of mocked mayo with lots of fibre-packed chopped veggies in a sandwich.
