My mild obsession with paneer continues & here I’m sharing another recipe with paneer as its main ingredient.
Before I go any further let me tell you that this is my sister’s recipe & it is one of those few recipes which I did not tamper with.There are so many variations possible for this recipe but I never change this one.
Grilled sandwiches are a good way to start your day & for me these are a yummy way to eat Bell peppers too! ( I’m not a big fan of Bell Peppers ). Not just breakfast, these are a good choice for last minute lunch or supper too. And to add to that you can count on them for your kids lunch box menu too. Add some fresh fruit which your kids love to eat so that they can have a complete meal at school.
Bread slices + butter+ paneer + onion + Bell pepper + 1 minute of grilling in Panini = ABSOLUTE BLISS
Makes: 6 Level : Easy
Preparation Time: 5 minutes Cooking time : 2 minutes
1 cup home made cheese ( see directions for making fresh paneer here)
1/4 cup finely chopped onion
1/4 cup finely chopped bell pepper
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
1/2 teaspoon salt ( or as per taste )
1/2 tablespoon butter/ olive oil
6 bread slices
- Take paneer in a bowl & mix in the chopped veggies.
- Now add the salt & pepper. Mix them well.
- Butter or oil the bread slices & fill in the spice mixture.
- Grill them together in a panini grill/Griddler for 1 minute.
- Cut them into halves & serve with fresh fruit and/or juice.
- Turn on the Panini press before you start chopping the veggies. This way you save time.
- If you don’t have panini grill or Griddler, then cook the sandwiches in a skillet/ pan. Make sure you heat both the sides for 1-2 minutes each( medium heat ).
- You can substitute paneer with cottage cheese / Tofu / Cream cheese.
