Grilled Roti Sandwich

A wonderful way to use leftover roti to make a nice, healthy and filling grilled roti sandwich as a wonderful lunchbox for kids.

Whenever I get up late in the mornings I always make these simple and super quick sandwiches for my girl’s lunch box. They totally love the grilled roti sandwich in their lunchbox and enjoy munching them with some juice.

After enjoying the corn waffle this is my second recipe for the kid’s lunchbox theme. I always try to make only those dishes that my girls love but sometimes I do make something that I can fix quickly. Sometimes they love my quick fix versions and sometimes not. I am glad that this grilled sandwich is on the good list for now.
