Cottage Cheese Club Sandwich

I love eating sandwiches for breakfast. My family calls me a westerner in this regard as they somehow are yet to develop a taste for it as breakfast dishes. This recipe, which is inspired from tastypalettes,spicy chilly, impressed me, partly because it calls for so many vegetables and partly because it is so darn simple. But since tofu is not easily available in my market, i have substituted it with Cottage cheese. health conscious people can take cottage cheese made from skimmed milk or low fat milk. I have also made changes here and there whenever i ran out of the ingredients hoping that it would still make for its taste. And yessss it did......
Take a look.....

Brown Bread- 4 slices
Cottage cheese (paneer) 50 gms
1/2 capsicum chopped finely. (take any colour you want, i have taken green which was readily available).
1/2 carrot grated or finely chopped
Little cabbage grated
Mixed sprouts 1/4 cup (boiled) (Take care to boil in less water and keep the water for kitchen use rather than discarding. It can be added to gravies or rasam)
Salt to taste
Pepper powder 1/2 - 3/4tsp
Mixed herbs ( readymade powder available) 1/2 tsp
Lemon Juice 1/2 tsp (optional)
Butter or Nutralite (got widely in India) (it is cholestrol free butter so healthier)

Take the boiled sprouts in a bowl, add grated cabbage, chopped carrots, capsicum, crumble paneer and add. Add salt, pepper powder, mixed herbs, lemon juice and mix well.
Toast bread slices on tawa with little butter on it. Keep the stuffing in between 2 slices, cut in between to form 2 triangles. Serve fresh else the bread will get soggy.
Serve with a glass of your favourite juice (i have served with fresh homemade pomegranate juice) and a bowl of cut fruits to complete your power breakfast.
