Thanks to priya for giving me a chance to add a lovely person to my friend's list. The secret ingredients given to me are Paneer and Capsicum.

I saw this sandwich in Chef Sanjeev Kapoor’s  website. The kids liked it so much. The recipe said for toasting the bread in oven, Since i don’t have one I toasted in tawa. I used butterscotch ice-cream, you can use your favourite flavour. I used my homemade nutella.


Brown bread – 8 slices
Nutella  - 4 tbsp
Walnuts – few
Butter for toasting
Butter scotch ice cream – 4 scoops


Cut the bread in to circle using cookie cutter.
Apply butter and toast the bread until it turns crisp.

Apply nutella  to one side of each slice. Keep one over the

other by placing nutella side up.

Keep a scoop of ice cream on the bread slice and garnish with walnut.
