Lilva Toastie Sandwich will give you burst of sweet and spicy flavor and makes a filling lunch or dinner idea. I like to pack these for school lunches as they are hearty. Once you have the Lilva stuffing ready, these are easy to make. I always have Sandwich chutney stocked up in my refrigerator. These sandwiches are high in protein and contains good fats. It’s healthy and can also be enjoyed for tea time snack. If you haven’t checked the recipe for Lilva Twists then click here which makes an amazing party appetizer. 

Lilva Stuffing

I used frozen Lilva to make the stuffing. It is very important to sauté the Lilva on stove top as it can drain out the moisture from them. I like to add dry spices for additional flavor. The green chilies will give a good kick and sugar will balance the flavor. The stuffing tastes good by itself and I can probably eat it by itself. I like to make the stuffing ahead of time and freeze it for emergency use. 


This is a 2 layer sandwich. The first layer will have Lilva stuffing along with Amul Cheese. The next layer had tomatoes and cucumber and you can skip the tomato slices if you are planning to pack for school lunch as it may get soggy. You can replace tomatoes with green pepper instead.
