Chef’s Variations:

  • Try using paneer tikka or cooked sliced mushrooms in place of chicken for veg options.
  • A soy bean patty or a mini burger with mustard honey spread on the bread and slices of cucumber and tomato in a multigrain bread would be an ideal choice too.
  • Double fried egg, lettuce leaves, slices of salami with a peanut butter spread is a good option too.
