How we wish we could eat just anything that our heart desires. Our appetite hankers for creamy, cheesy meal every single time. But the irony is that all those mouth-watering foods fall flat on our tummy and add up fat, which is too stubborn to go. We have grown up devouring grilled cheese sandwich with layers of mayonnaise and cheese. While this sandwich always agreed with our palate but hardly made peace with our health. Are you also a grilled cheese sandwich fan? You'll agree how tempting it is. But, if you are watching your waistline, you might have to resist this heavenly treat. What if we told you that you can still enjoy a plateful of grilled sandwich bereft of any guilt?

Here's a great recipe of grilled sandwich that contains a lush, gooey filling without the help of mayonnaise or cheese. They are replaced with a much healthier food – hung curd. Curd is known to impart a multitude of health benefits, especially during summers. It is one of the few sources of probiotics, available around. Probiotics kill the bad bacteria in the body and iron out the digestion process. Curd is also known to build immunity, improve bone strength and boost skin health.

Hung curd is nothing but curd stripped of its water content. Place curd in a muslin cloth and tie it securely. Hang the cloth with curd for 2-3 hours or till all the water leaves the cloth. Squeeze out the remaining water and untie the cloth. The resultant will be a smooth, creamy paste which can easily pass off as regular cream or mayonnaise.
