Paneer pesto sandwich recipe

Recipe ingredients:

Bread slice – 4
Pesto sauce – 1/4 cup
Paneer –  3/4 cup
Mozzarella cheese, grated – 1/4 cup
Onion – 1/2 chopped
Tomato – 1/2 chopped
Capsicum, chopped – 1/4 cup
Black Pepper, crushed – 1/2 tsp
Lemon juice – 1 tsp, optional
Butter – 1 tbsp

Method

  1. Keep paneer immersed in hot water until use. Heat a sandwich maker with grill plate.
  2. In a bread slice, spread 1 & 1/2 to 2 tbsp of pesto sauce over it.
  3. Arrange cubed paneer pieces and onion, tomato, capsicum over it.
  4. Drizzle lemon juice if adding.
  5. Sprinkle cheese as a layer, top with some crushed pepper. Cover with another slice of bread.
  6. Spread butter over the top bread slice.

  8. Toast for 2 mins or as per the instructions given by the toaster.

Notes

  • I took 1 cup frozen paneer cubes and kept immersed in hot water. It measured 3/4 cup once soft.
  • You can use multi grain or whole wheat bread slices for healthier version. 
  • Use mozzarella than other processed cheese slice as cheese slices  melt and makes the griller messy.
