Paneer Sandwich At Home

Paneer sandwich is easy delicious, kid’s favorite sandwich. It can also be a quick fix for a filling tea time snack for your whole family. With paneer (Indian cottage cheese), few vegetables and masala powders, its tasty as well as healthy stuffing to sandwich between breads and make a snack. Use whole grain bread for healthier choice.

INGREDIENTS

  • Paneer, crumbled – 1 & 1/2 cup
  • Ginger garlic paste – 1 tsp
  • Carrot, julienne – 3 tbsp
  • Coriander leaves, chopped – 1/4 cup
  • Green chilli – 2, finely chopped
  • Red chilli powder – 3/4 tsp
  • Garam masala powder – 1 tsp
  • Roasted cumin seeds powder – 1/2 tsp
  • Turmeric powder –1/8 tsp
  • Salt – As needed
  • Chaat masala – 1/2 tsp
  • Lemon juice – 1/2 tsp
  • Bread slices – 8
  • Butter – to smear
  • Oil – 2 tsp
  • Cumin seeds – 1/2 tsp

METHOD

  • Keep paneer immersed in hot water until soft. Mean while you can prepare the required ingredients. Crumble the paneer once cooled down.
  • In a pan, add oil and splutter cumin seeds in low flame. Add ginger garlic paste and give it a fry.
  • Add green chilli, carrot and capsicum. Fry for a minute to cook it but still retains it crunch.
  • Add turmeric, red chilli powder, garam masala, cumin powder and salt. Mix well.
  • Add crumbled paneer, coriander leaves and mix for 2 minutes.
  • Once mixed well, add chaat masala, lemon juice and switch off the flame. Mix well and transfer to a bowl.
  • Heat a sandwich maker until it is ready (green light goes on) and grease well with butter, both up and down. Spread the prepared paneer in a bread slice and cover it with another slice. Place in the sandwich maker and close it.
  • Once it is golden in colour, take off from the sandwich maker and divide into two to serve. I used griller plates, so I gave a quick double toast for extra crispy sandwiches.
  • Cut into triangles to serve

NOTES

I used kohinoor paneer and always love its soft texture (not sponsored)

I crumble paneer with hands, but you can give it a run in mixer too.

You can add vegetables of your choice too like sweet corn, peas etc.

Chaat masala has salt, so adjust the amount of salt that goes in.
