Weeknight Dinner Series: vegetable grilled cheese sandwich

I'm sure you all must be thinking that there is no need to post recipe on food blog for grilled cheese sandwich! But sometimes some minor changes here and there in the recipe, and you get a whole new dish. Normally I pair this sandwich with any kind of soup. This is also totally forgiving and very versatile recipe. I make few different type of versions of this sandwich.

Version 1
shredded cabbage
shredded carrot
green chili as per taste(optional)
freshly crushed black pepper powder(optional)
salt as per taste
shredded cheese
bread slices

Mix all the vegetables, green chili, salt, pepper powder, and cheese in one bowl. Put 1 or 2 tablespoon of vegetable mixture on bread slice. Put another bread slice on top of it. Now apply butter on both slices(outside!...yes that's the secret for perfect grilled sandwich). Grill it on the tava or sandwich maker.

Version 2
boiled and mashed potatoes
green peas
green chili paste(optional)
chaat masala(optional)
salt as per taste
shredded cheese
bread slices

Repeat the same procedure as above!

Version 3

Grilled Fajita vegetables
black beans
garlic powder
taco seasoning
salt as per taste
shredded cheese
bread slices

For fajita vegetables, normally I use onion, belle pepper, zucchini and carrot. You can use any vegetable of your choice.
This is kind of Mexican grilled cheese sandwich.

This recipe is perfect for busy weeknight, kids breakfast/snack, weekend brunch.
