Channa Sandwich/Chickpeas Sandwich

Coming to day 2 of blogging marathon #43,I chose to share a simple and healthy sandwich.As both my kids love to have sandwiches I make quiet often with different stuffing for snack.
Today's recipe can be made with left over channa masala also,but here I made the stuffing separately. This sandwich is so filling and can be had with no guilt.I usually use generous amount of butter for kids and for us with no butter.With no further delay lets move on to the recipe...................................
