Bombay Chapati Sandwich

It is inspired by the famous Bombay Sandwich, minus the bread. This version is a great hit with kids who don’t eat roti or chapati easily. It is dedicated to all the mothers who are constantly wondering how to feed exciting food to their children but also want to ensure they get the right amount of nutrition.
