Back to the boiled egg sandwich, I have used punjabi garam masala powder, but you can use any of your favorite spice powder including the cajun spice mix or coarsely crushed pepper powder. But the spice powder is the one that brings in the flavor to the egg sandwich, so use a good aromatic one. I have used raw grated carrots , since we love them. You can also use raw onions, spring onions, mint, cucumber, cabbage or any other favorite leafy veggies like lettuce.
Making the stuffing and toasting the bread all is done on the tawa, meaning it is so simple and we don’t need a toaster. It tastes super delicious and is healthy if you choose the right kind of bread. Kids will love the egg sandwich, you can serve them for breakfast or after school snack too.

1. Boil the eggs, remove the shell and slice each egg to 3 to 4 round slices.Set these aside Heat a tawa with 2 tsp. oil, add cumin and garlic, when the garlic is lightly fried, add the onions and chilies, sprinkle salt and fry them till lightly golden.
2. Add red chili powder, garam masala, turmeric and kasuri methi. Kasuri methi is optional or you can use any ground herbs of your choice. Mix everything well and fry till you begin to smell good, just for a minute.
3. Reduce the flame to low. Move the onions aside or to a separate plate. Butter or oil the bread and toast, set these aside to use as top slices.Now add another set of bread slices and toast them.
4. while the bread toasts spread onion mixture on the slices, place the sliced eggs, repeat the onion mixture over the egg, especially on the yolk. This prevents the yolk getting soggy with the raw vegetable juices.
5. Layer the veggies you prefer along with little coriander leaves.Sprinkle lemon juice or chat masala if you like. I did not use any.
6. Cover it with another slice of bread that was set aside.Press it gently lightly, Do not overdo, else filling comes out.
Enjoy egg sandwich right away. If you prefer to pack it for later use, i suggest skipping the raw veggies or pack them separately.
