Bread Cheese Canape

Bread Cheese Canapé  

Winters are in. Time to enjoy winter veggies. My favourite one is green Chana. I prefer to add these Chana in various vegetables that i cook. Recently I prepared another variant of evening snacks using these Chana and paneer. I prepared paneer bhurji which is quite popular in our homes. For variation to that I added green chana and put crushed black pepper.

This gave it a different taste and crunchiness of chana made it more delicious. Once this stuff is ready I placed it on top of brown bread canapes, to make them more tempting for kids to pick one and gulp down. It is  nutritious and a change from routine evening snacks. Great option which is filling, healthy and innovative.

Enjoy and delight your family...
