Here is a masaledar sandwich tuned to the desi palate! Rather than load your sandwich with cheese or butter, try filling it with a subzi made of sprouts to boost the protein and fibre content. This Spicy Sprouts Sandwich is perfect for a cold morning, as it is hot and spicy with hints of various masala powders, onions, green chillies and tomatoes.
