Usually, we made sandwiches with eggs/chicken/veggies/cheese, but today I made sandwiches with the scrambled cottage cheese filling. Very easy to make, may use your leftover scrambled cottage cheese in a great way. My mom is pure vegetarian, she loves cottage cheese (paneer) a lot. Usually she makes paneer bhurji (scrambled cottage cheese) weekly once. So made these sandwiches specially for her and she relished it truely. Thanks a lot to my friend Meena Bhatia for this healthy and yummilicious recipe. You made my mom's day today......
