I don’t know about you but in my house, the carrot gets a bit of a step-motherly treatment. I take it for granted, don’t give it too much of importance, use it as a filler in combination with other vegetables and its presence solely dependent on the quantity needed and never stopping to consider its feelings. Basically, it always plays a supporting role and never gets its due limelight. So when I picked this theme of one vegetable in three ways, I figured it would be nice to hero the carrot for once.
Since the husband is travelling I am having a dairy overflow – too much curd and too much milk. So, I figured I could make some hung curd and have a fabulous sandwich with it. It turned out creamy and delicious with the daughter happily munching away and I have been patting my back ever since.
WHAT WE NEED
8 slices of bread
1 carrot, grated
Hung curd from 1/2 litre curd
1 tsp chilly powder / curry powder / mixed dried herbs
Butter to toast the bread
WHAT TO DO
- Toast the bread slices with butter
- In a bowl, mix together the hung curd, grated carrot, spice powder and salt
- Apply the carrot mixture on a slice of bread generously and cover it with another slice
- Repeat the same for the remaining bread slices
- Though it is not mandatory to toast the bread, it is recommended because the bread otherwise is unable to hold it together and gets soggy due to the hung curd

I too like to toast bread for sandwiches. Cheese and carrot filling is mouthwatering
That is a great idea Sowmya. Hung curd would make the sandwich really creamy. And the carrots add a nice freshness..
Haha I love the way you described …bechare carrot pe julm ho raha ho jaise….jokes apart…lovely creamy carrot sandwich…they sure do taste awesome
The shredded raw carrot must have added a nice crunch to the sandwich. I love recipes like these where all the flavor comes from the main ingredient.
Love that chilly powder touch in this sandwich, i love these sort simple yet a filling sandwich. Prefect looking sandwich there.
Sowmya thanks for reminding of this recipe, using carrot and hung yogurt as a sandwich filler. I used to make this often with some coriander or mint for the kids and hubby when they were taking packed lunches to school and work. Now I’ve really forgotten all the fillings I use to make. Carrot sandwiches taste really delicious.
The sandwich sounds yum ! I love hung curd and carrots combo and make these sandwiches often .
I love the creaminess the hung curds give to sandwiches..guess most of us tend to forget carrots somehow. I too end up doing it and feel bad!..this is an excellent way to use the carrots.
Hung curd and carrot makes the best filling for the sandwich, looks so good.Perfect for quick breakfast.
A very interesting idea, Sowmya. I am an avid carrot lover along with the kids and I am sure this sandwich will be loved by us.
Hehe somehow I agree that carrots are always sidelined… in my house, it gets eaten more raw than when cooked, so I really don’t bother to cook them much. This sandwich sounds delicious and a good lunch box idea, sure my girls will love it… thanks for sharing…
Carrots are neglected even in my house Sowmya. Only my daughter and I enjoy carrot in various forms, but the men in the house despise it (gajar halwa, being an exception). This creamy carrot sandwich sounds absolutely delicious. I would love to try it some time soon.
hung curd is a very healthy substitute for mayo in sandwiches……love the recipe………..
Turn around Sowmya I will pat your back too. Will make it for hubby now that I have a diet to take care of. Sounds yummy and the spices are just what he can take. 😀
looks amazing – perfect for tea time themed brunch
Hung carrot sandwich sounds very inviting and would make a nice after school snack.
Easy and tempting sandwich, good for lunchbox meal.
