Paneer is an all time favourite for most vegetarians. I have some preparation of paneer in some form or other every week. This 'Paneer Sandwich' are mostly made for breakfast but recently, I made them for our dinner. We had it with a bowl full of 'Tomato Black Eyed Beans Soup' (recipe in next post!). It was a hearty meal.
For these toasted sandwiches you will need:
1 litre milk.
Juice of one lemon.
1 tomato deseeded and chopped.
½ small onion chopped finely.
¼ cup chopped bell peppers (mixture of yellow, red and green).
1 green chilli chopped.
½ tsp grated ginger.
1 tbsp ghee.
Salt to taste.
1 tsp sugar.
½ tsp black pepper powder.
10 slices of bread.
Butter as needed.
Makes 5 sandwiches.
Boil the milk in a heavy bottom pan. When the milk comes to boil add the lemon juice and remove from the heat. The milk will curdle. Strain this through a cheese cloth and separate the paneer from the whey.
In a pan add ghee. When heated add the grated ginger and chopped chilies. Sauté for a few seconds and add chopped onion. Sauté for another 3-4 minutes and add chopped bell peppers. Now add the crumbled paneer and heat for another few minutes. Add the chopped tomatoes and spices. Heat for 2-3 minutes and take it off gas and let it cool down before using it in the sandwich.
