Punjabis love paneer in practically any form – so here’s a sandwich stuffed with masaledar paneer


  • Bread slices 8
  • Cottage cheese (paneer) 100 gms
  • Salt to taste

  • Mint chutney 4 tbsps
  • Cheese slices 4
  • Chaat masala 2 tsps
  • Red chilli powder 2 tsps
  • Ginger, chopped 1 tsp
  • Green chillies, chopped 1 tsp
  • Lettuce leaves a few


  • Slice the cottage cheese into 4 thin slices and place on a plate. Sprinkle some salt over them and set aside for a few minutes.
  • Butter each bread slice and spread ½ tbsp mint chutney on each of them.
  • Place a cheese slice and a cottage slice on 4 slices. Sprinkle some chaat masala, red chilli powder, ginger and green chillies on top of cottage cheese slice. Top each sandwich with one of the remaining bread slices.
  • Spread some butter on top side of the sandwiches.
  • Heat a non-stick grill pan, brush some butter on it, place the sandwiches, 2 at a time, and grill on low heat, turning sides, till both sides are evenly golden.
