paneer sandwich recipe

Paneer sandwich is easy to make and healthy and filling too. The best thing about grilled paneer sandwich is the ease at  which you can make, it just take under 5 minutes to make!

Breakfast sandwiches can be super easy with a panini press. Though, dosa and sambar are our staple at home; sometimes I like to serve my kids sandwiches and paneer sandwich is the best one to start the day with all those power packed proteins.

My kids were not much of paneer lovers earlier; but I think it maybe due to peer influence that Nidhi and Cheriyan started loving paneer and I was always making them veg sandwich layered with paneer and gradually they want "paneer only" sandwich and thus I started making this recipe.

I bought a grill machine (panini press) and I am simply loving it; making sandwiches and grilling vegetables/meat etc are a breeze now. It just takes 3 minutes for the sandwich to get grilled and kids love the grill marks on top. Breakfast and afternoon snack is the main grilling time these days, I hope the grill machine bug dont die fast.

Ofcourse, you sure can make this in a tawa; just place buttered slice bread on the heated tawa and then simmer the fire, place the filling cover with another buttered slice and gently press down with a spoon or spatula, then turn over when the bottom bread is toasted and repeat the same.

I have already shared a video on grilled mushroom sandwich on my YouTube channel, both my kids love that mushroom filling, do peep in for the recipe on YouTube.

Spread butter on one side of the bread (the buttered side should be place on the grill or tawa). If you are health conscious, you can omit the butter and use brown bread. Butter one side of all the bread slices and keep aside.

  paneer sandwich recipe  

  INGREDIENTS

  • Bread slices: 8
  • Paneer: 200 gms, grated or crumbled
  • Green chili: 1
  • Coriander (cilantro) leaves: 2 tbsp, chopped
  • Pepper powder: 1/2 tsp
  • Garam masala: 1/2 tsp
  • Onion: 1 medium, chopped
  • Butter or olive oil as required
  • Salt: 1/2 tsp or as required


  METHOD:

  1. Grate or crumble paneer, add in chopped onion and coriander leaves, pepper powder, garam masala, and salt.
  2. Mix everything together. If using a toaster, panini press, or grill, preheat it to medium high and if using an iron/nonstick tawa heat it on medium flame and grease with butter.
  3. Spread butter on one side of the bread (the buttered side should be place on the grill or tawa). If you are health conscious, you can omit the butter and use brown bread. Butter one side of all the bread slices and keep aside.
  4. Place the butter slice on the grill/toaster/tawa and top with 2-3 tbsp of filling.
  5. Cover with another buttered bread slice. Close the grill top; if using tawa, press down with a spatula/spoon with flame on low and flip to the other side when the bottom side is brown and toast the other side too. With grill machine; you just need to close the lid and both sides will get toasted/grilled nicely in just about 3 minutes. Enjoy with tomato sauce or green chutney.

NOTES

  • Because I grilled in the panini press; there is no need to saute the onions as the heat of the machine will cook it. But if you are making this sandwich on the tawa; you can also lightly saute the onions, green chilies and then add in the paneer and give it a stir for a minute or two.
  • I personally prefer not sauting the onion for paneer sandwich because; the less oil the better.
  • I do not favor trimming off the bread sides or crust; so, I make sandwich with them; if you do not prefer; you can alawys trim them.
  • What I love about paneer fillings are that you can make ahead this and store in fridge and use when needed, but do not store more than two days.
  • If you want to make it more healthy; use brown bread minus the butter.
  • You can also add in some chopped capsicum and more coriander leaves; since I wanted the flavor and taste of paneer to stand out I kept everything else mild. This recipe serves 4 (you can make 4 or 5 sandwiches with this filling).

Puff pastry recipe : Homemade puff pastry in 15 minutes, can you believe that??  Bakery style  Puff pastry is so easy to make at home that you will never buy greasy bakery puffs. The best thing about this puff pastry recipe is that; it does not need any refrigeration (chilling the dough) or any other so called difficult method, you may see when you google for "puff pastry" Easy puff pastry can be made with the most basic ingredients and in under 15 minutes. Back in the 80's amma started making puffs at home; which my two brothers and myself used to enjoy a lot.

Fast-forward to 2014; my daughter, Nidhi loves puffs and I have been asking amma to teach me how to make and somehow things did not work out when I last visited her. Right now she is visiting us here in Calicut and I coaxed and buttered her to show me how to make puffs. The
