Kulcha Sandwich

Kulcha Sandwich, such a delicious and appetizing dish!!! Basically we replace the bread with soft and fluffy kulcha to make these sandwiches. Stuffing is prepared with paneer (Indian cottage cheese), veggies and pav bhaji masala powder (which makes it even more flavorful). Enjoy it in breakfast or as a snack.
