chana sandwich recipe with step by step photos – at my home chana masala or chole is often made and on some days when there are leftovers, i make this delicious chana toast sandwich recipe.

this chana sandwich recipe can be made with leftover rajma (kidney beans) or lobia masala too. just keep in mind that the gravy or curry has to be semi dry or dry. if you love sandwiches then there is rajma sandwich and aloo masala grilled sandwich recipe also on the blog.

when i make this chana toast sandwich i always spice it with chaat masala and roasted cumin powder. chana masala is itself a heavily spiced dish, so i use less strong spices for the toppings. i also add veggies like onions, tomatoes and capsicum to these sandwiches.

you can also add cheese slices or grated cheese to the sandwich. sometimes i do this way for the hubby. i also make a vegan version of this sandwich by using olive oil instead of butter and also skip the cheese. so you can easily veganize these sandwiches too.

i made these chickpeas sandwiches in an electric sandwich toaster/griller. you can use a non electric sandwich maker or grill to make these sandwiches. the chole sandwich can be served with green chutneysweet tamarind chutney or tomato sauce.

using leftover curries or vegetable dishes in sandwiches or parathas is a good way to use leftover food. there are few other recipes on the blog which uses left over food like masala rice, idli chaat, kheer made from leftover rice and rice cutlet recipe.

  1. Hi, your recipes are really good. i need a suggestion from you, i am planning to buy a oven but i am confused which one to buy, i am looking for something where i can use for all purpose like baking cakes, cookies, breads, etc etc but i dont think microwave is apt for all, which one should i go for..?

    looking forward for your reply.

    • i currently have a philips OTG and its a basic model. you will get various other brands too. check with the dealer or on the web which brand is good and then buy it. microwave is good for microwave cooking as well as baking. but personally i prefer to bake in an OTG than in a microwave oven. OTG is good for baking various stuff like breads, cookies and cakes.
