Paneer Sandwich Recipe – Quick and easy sandwich recipe with cottage cheese aka paneer. This can be ready in 15 minutes only from start to finish.
Here I am spreading the butter, green chutney and ketchup on the bread. These all combined flavors complement well the flavor of paneer mixture.
The paneer stuffing mixture is uncooked. Here grated paneer is mixed with onion, capsicum, chillies and few spice powders. There is another method for making paneer sandwich and that is cooked stuffing version, similar to the bhurji.
This paneer sandwich is perfect as a breakfast. Because this can be done very quickly, perfect for busy mornings. Or you can make the paneer mixture previous night and keep refrigerated.
Also this sandwich is filling hence good for breakfast. On top of that it has enough nutrients needed to start the day.
Here I have used the toaster machine to make the sandwich. Alternately you can toast on tawa (keep the gas on medium-low to get the perfect crispy bread) or you can grill the sandwiches.
