Todays post is about a very famous Iyengar Bakery Vegetable Masala Sandwich / Bread Masala Toast Recipe. It can also be called as open sandwich and it tastes so delicious and it has an amazing flavour. If you have fuzzy kids at home then this is the right choice to make them eat veggies, as they couldn’t identify the traces of vegetables hidden in it. You can alter the vegetables as per your choice, but the original recipes calls for onions and carrots only. This recipe is not only famous in Bangalore and I have tasted it so many times in Chennai and in my hometown Trichy as well. When I posted Iyengar Bakery Eggless Honey Cake recipe, I got request to post their other signature recipes also. As I have tried it so many times I was very confident to post this recipe.
