Oh! Oh! What is this Beet Bhaji Boxes. Yes, this is a very novel sandwich, made with the box sandwich toaster on the gas stove. We have all used this sandwich toaster earlier. I have used Anjali brand toaster which is available in all big vessels stores. The picture of the sandwich maker is here.

Beet root coupled with Pav Bhaji masala, encased in bread slices and cooked to perfection on the gas stove, the sandwiches look like small boxes, hence the name. Very satisfying when served with a piping hot Cheesy Spinach Dip. I am sure this recipe will become your family favourite too. Good to pack for lunch box. In case you want to take it with you when you travel, just omit the paneer. An ideal snack to eat while travelling , no mess. Easy to eat. Happy Sandwich Making !
