Egg - Tuna and Veggie Sandwich....


My daughter is a very picky eater. She avoids most of the vegetables, not because she does not like them but she just forms an opinion about the taste in her mind, where as she does not even know the taste of it. When I had served her this sandwich, she ate not one but three slices of it. After she finished eating, I told her that she ate mushrooms, the vegetable she hates the most. This is the story in most houses with kids. 
This sandwich is a complete meal filled with eggs, fish and vegetables. I have used canned tuna, but even fresh boiled tuna can be used. I prefer making bread at home, but try to use fresh bread bought the same day from the store. 
This can be served for breakfast, with evening cup of tea or even for dinner with a bowl of soup. 

Ingredients
1 Loaf of Brown or White Bread slices 
4 Eggs
1/2 canned Tuna 
1 small size Onion chopped 
2 Green Chillies chopped
1/4 cup of Red and Yellow Capsicum chopped 
2 tbsp Sweet Corn
2 big Garlic cloves chopped
1 or 2 big size Mushroom chopped
Few Spinach leaves chopped 
2 tbsp Cheddar Cheese 
2 tbsp Butter 
Salt to taste 
1/4 tsp Pepper powder
P. S. Grated carrots and beetroot can also be added. 

Method
To make the filling for the sandwich, take a pan, add the butter and let it melt. Add garlic, chillies and onion. Sauté it till translucent. Add the capsicum. Stir and cook it for a minute. Add the corn and mushroom, stir it for another minute. Add the spinach and stir it for another minute. Break the eggs and add it in the pan, sprinkle salt and pepper powder. Stir the eggs until it is cooked. Add the cheese and the canned tuna. Stir it and remove it from the flame. Let it cool a bit. Take 2 slices of bread. Take 2 to 3 tbsp of the filling and spread it on one slice of the bread. Cover the filling with another slice of bread. Cut it into triangle. Repeat the process with the remaining bread. Serve it with hot cup of tea or a bowl of hot soup.
