Simple Spicy Carrot Sandwich

Every one of us love Sandwiches, due to their simplicity we enjoy making it & eating it too. We all have our own customized sandwiches & this is one such recipe.

Through our growing years we are repeated told carrots are specially good for our eyes & also it has many vitamins & minerals required for our body. Carrots have always been a great company to other veggies because we always use carrots along with many other veggies in our dishes. But this recipe/dish is dedicated to carrots only.

Carrots are known for their colour & sweetness. When they are sautéed they taste fantastic as they turn soft, the sweetness mellows down & it blends well with the spices we add.

We all have bread & carrots in our home at all times. This recipe is super easy & simple, but definitely not simple in taste.

Do try it, it is a recipe for keeps.
