Roasting a capsicum on an open flame is the surest way to make yourself hungry because the aroma is just too appetizing! And well, that's just what goes into this awesome tava sandwich.

Roasted capsicum and cheese with just the right amounts of garlic, butter and mayonnaise yields an awesomely creamy and garlicky sandwich that promises tonnes of delight in every bite!

This predominantly savoury sandwich gets just a mild hint of sweetness from the roasted capsicum, which tastes too dreamy to describe.

The mixture for the Roasted Red Capsicum and Cheese Tava Sandwich can be prepared earlier and stored in the fridge for two days. So, you can prepare some during the weekend and keep it for a busy weekday.

Just make sure you serve the sandwich immediately after preparation to enjoy the vibrant texture and flavour.
