Grilled Paneer Sandwich

Grilled Paneer Sandwich 

How long it takes: 60 minutes

Makes:  16 Sandwiches

Quick-fix recipes are useful for breakfast and snacks, and one such trial led to this recipe. Paneer is quite versatile with breads/rotis and in a scrambled/bhurji form it can be easily used as a yummy filling. A couple of years ago I had put up the recipe for veg sandwich which was well appreciated, and I thought of making a filling with paneer. Hope you enjoy it too –

What you need to have:

1. Grated Paneer – 1 Cup

2. Bread slices – 16 (I have used whole wheat bread)

3. Butter (cholestrol free is what I prefer) – 100 grams

Whole wheat bread slices

Ingredients of Stuffing:

1. Onion chopped fine –  1/2 Cup

2. Cumin seeds – 1 Teaspoon

3. Green chilli (grated ) – 1

4. Tomato chopped – 1

5. Turmeric powder – 1/2 Teaspoon

6. Chilli powder – 1/4 Teaspoon

7. Garam masala powder – A pinch

8. Chopped Cilantro – A handful

Ingredients of seasoning

What you do with what you have:

1. Wash and chop tomato fine. Wash and peel onions finely, as well as coriander/cilantro and keep aside as shown in the image above.

2. Place a skillet with 3-4 teaspoons of cooking oil on medium flame.  When hot, add jeera/cumin seeds to it.  When jeera splutters, add chopped tomatoes and fry till mushy. Add chopped onions with salt and fry till done.

3. Add chopped green chillies and stir a little. Add all the powders in a row.and stir again.

4.  Finally add grated paneer and chopped cilantro and mix well.

5. Finally transfer it to a bowl as shown in the image below.


6. Place the stuffing and spread it evenly. Apply butter on both sides of the other slice and cover the stuffed bread.

7. Use a non-stick sandwich maker and grill till crispy and brown on both the sides.

8. Enjoy with tomato sauce or plain or even with Amul butter and chutney powder of your choice.

How long it takes: 60 minutes

Makes:  16 Sandwiches

Good to remember:

1. I have used broken wheat bread for the dish. It is individual choice.

2. I have also used cholesterol free butter from Amul – not that I insist on your doing the same.

3. One can even use vegetables of one’s choice for the stuffing.

4. Grill it till brown and crispy. Make sure you do not burn it .

      Hi Divya,

      Thanx for your encouraging comments. Since paneer is the favorite of one and all , one can prepare the stuffing the previous day and push it in the refregerator and prepare it for tiffin in the evening on Sundays at least no??????!!!!!!!

      Hi Shilpa,

      Thanx a lot for ur comments. It is ideal for a change for evening tiffin since the stuffing can be prepared earlier and pushed in the refrigerator to save time.
