Tandoori Mushroom sandwich

Tandoori Mushroom sandwich

Who do not like sandwiches? That is everyone’s favorite. Tandoori mushroom sandwich is a quick and easy sandwich which is crunchy and soft in texture with burst of tandoori flavors.

In India we use to make grilled sandwich with potato and peas stuffing which contains high carbs because of the potatoes. I have made comparatively healthy version by using mushroom in the recipe. Mushrooms are great source of vitamin D and calcium and lot more. It is a great way to feed mushroom to your kid or to the one who do not like it.

This recipe is derived from Tikka style stuffed mushroom and from the leftover stuffing of the mushroom I have used in making sandwich and it turned out awesome. After that I am making Tandoori mushroom sandwiches only. 🙂 You can use this stuffing to make stuffed mushroom which is a great way to eat low carbs.

I am sure that you are definately gonna love this. Do try it and let me know how it turns out for you.

Check label before buying bread, it has to be 100% whole wheat if you see enriched wheat flour that means they have used all purpose flour/maida in it.

For saving time make stuffing in advance and keep it in the refrigerator for 1-2 days.

For dairy free version use fresh bread crumb for binding and skip yogurt.

For Gluten free version make it with gluten free bread.

For vegan version use breadcrumb instead of paneer, skip cheese and replace dairy yogurt with vegan yogurt(coconut yogurt or soy yogurt).

If you want to make it with less ingredients then use tandoori masala or curry powder instead of adding all dried spices.

After grilling it in panini maker keep it on the cooling rack so that it won't be soggy.

Use bread of your choice.

Use this stuffing to make tandoori mushroom quesadilla.
