It is one thing to say that breakfast is the most important meal of the day and another to enter the kitchen early in the morning and fix a half decent meal that will prove to be a satisfying affair for you and your family. From zeroing in on the right recipe, to finding the ingredients and then finally preparing the dish, all of this does take a toll on you, especially when you are tight on time. And ultimately, you resort to the good ol’ sandwiches. Sandwiches are always satiating, besides being utterly delightful. Sandwiches can be as easy or complicated as you want them to be. Even during morning, you can jazz up your sandwich the way you want, so why stick to the same boring options?  

India's Love Affair With Chickpeas

Chana or chickpea is quite a breakfast favourite in India. Chole bhature, Chole Puri, Chole Kulche are items you typically enjoy on a lazy Sunday, when you have ample time to spend in the kitchen and even more time to relish all that you cooked with your loved ones. Unfortunately, this luxury is impossible on rest of the days. But should that mean you keep your bowl of soaked chana aside. Not at all, chana as an ingredient is so versatile, that it works wonders even in quick recipes. Take for instance this spicy chana sandwich. 

How To Make The Chana Sandwich? Tips To Keep In Mind  

The USP of this sandwich is the spicy chana mixture which is made with the goodness of garam masala, boiled chickpeas, garam masala, salt, lemon etc. The sandwich is also replete with grated carrot and beetroot that not only add texture and flavour to the sandwich, but also makes it enriched with nutrition. Shredded cabbage and spring onions also add bulk to the sandwich making it all the more wholesome, giving it a slight ‘oriental’ edge. 

What Makes The Sandwich A Perfect Morning Snack?  

As far as the choice of bread is concerned you can pick any kind of bread, brown or white. However, we will place our bet on the former, given how nutritious it is. Chickpea is an excellent source of protein. Protein helps keep you full, ward off feelings of bingeing and overeating and build muscles too. Therefore, loading up on protein is must when it comes to maintaining a healthy weight. Another thing that makes the sandwich it  a perfect morning snack is its rich vegetable content. Carrots, beetroots and spring onions are teeming with antioxidants that are good for eyes, heart, hair and skin.
