Cottage Cheese Bun Sandwich was an impromptu experiment which was a winner! Though I love traditional food more, at times when you want a change and a no fuss meal, I experiment with whatever chutneys or dips are at hand.

I generally decide on the spot and mix and match a few ingredients while trying to keep it as simple as I possibly can. Well, having bought these paav (locally produced Indian Buns) to make a simple cottage cheese and raw salad sandwich for dinner, I suddenly thought of giving it a twist and the result was amazing!
