Paneer(Indian Cottage Cheese) Sandwich Toastie

Thank you EC from Simple Indian Food for introducing me to fellow bloggers in the Budding Blogger Series & giving bloggers an opportunity to discover my blog . It was truely special to me .

Coming to Paneer … Its such a versatile ingredient.. Its fun to play with it in my cooking. Use it as a starter or for a main course or for a sweet.. always well appreciated.
Paneer sandwitch is something which my mother used to make for us as an evening snack occasionally & its pretty quick.


White Bread – Medium Thickness8 slices
Butter4-5 tsp
Green Chutney ( Coriander Chutney)Optional


Indian Cottage Cheese(Paneer)1 Cup Grated
Coriander leaves / Cilantro1 Cup Chopped finely
Crushed green chillies1 table spoon
Chopped Onions1/2 cup
SaltTo taste
Freshly ground Pepper1/2 – 1 tsp


  1. Mix all the filling ingredients in a medium sized bowl.
  2. Lay the slices of bread on a clean cutting board and apply butter to it on either side.( This will keep the sandwitch slice a little moist & golden).If you wish you could spread a layer of coriander chutney/spread on one slice innerside. Now put a generous amount of the prepared paneer mixture on 4 of the slices. Spread to cover entire slice. Top with another buttered slice.
  3. Heat up the Sandwitch Toaster & now place the filled bread slices over it.
  4. Grill or Toast the sandwich till crispy and golden.
  5. Cut the Sandwitches diagonally & serve hot with Ketchup .

  • This is also a yummy one. My version paneer with omam was really delicious. It was not heavy as I have added omam. But I restricted my intake.
