Paneer Sandwich


Paneer Sandwich

Having a quick and easy snack for the evenings is always a challenge for me. I need something filling and at the same time healthy to feed my boys to keep them sustained for the busy evening. This paneer sandwich recipe is from Harini’s blog and I loved the paneer filling. It is sort of a paneer bhurji (scrambled paneer) stuffed inside the bread and it was a lovely treat for my kids that also kept them filled up.

Preparation time – 10 minutes

  • To make the sandwich, spread about a tablespoon of the paneer mixture on one slice of the bread and then top with the other slice. I used a Panini maker to make the sandwich. You could also make it in a sandwich maker or on the griddle.
