CTO Sandwich

When I asked my family to guess what this sandwich was, they had no clue. They were confused and said so many things, and finally when I gave them some hints that CTO didn’t mean anything related to my work, they guessed it right. Were you able to guess it?

Anyway, without much suspense, here is what it means – Carrot, Capsicum, Tomato and Onion sandwich.

P.S: If you don’t eat Onion, you can just skip using it in this recipe and it still will taste good.
