Tiffin Recipe: Homemade Oats Sandwich
Healthy eating starts early and that is one reason why even when it comes to my school going son’s tiffin, the food has to be high on nutrition. But it’s not as easy as it sounds in the age of burgers and pizzas. Hence to make the food attractive, I play around with colors, shapes and presentation. In fact, this oats sandwich looks more appealing when cut in small bite sized triangles and served with green chutney.
So one of these days when I wanted to pack something interesting for my son, oats sandwich came in handy. It’s a quick fix and doesn’t take much time to pack it in. Though, I haven’t added cheese here but a generous helping of mozzarella will just take its taste to next level. Hung curd is my personal favorite spread and I prefer it over mayonnaise and likes and that is one reason why most of my recipes have hung curd than any other spread, not to mention the benefits of curd. So here is how you can make this simple and easy Oats Sandwich which I am sure will make your tiffin happier.
