are very easy to make at the same time quite filling and healthy too when you make it wholesome.Paneer Sandwich is one of my trials few weeks back....I just loved the combo of paneer, capsicum with tomato sauce, so did mittu...I am sure this will be perfect for kids as its approved by her :) You can pack it for your kids snack box or serve it for breakfast.
I adapted my paneer bhurji
recipe to make this stuffing....you can use the same stuffing for kati roll
/ frankie etc or just roll it in plain phulka
, wrap it and give it to your kids.
I always have limited options when it comes to ordering sandwiches in restaurants as I dont like raw items in my sandwich and most of the veg sandwiches comes with raw tomato which is a big no to me....So I started making my own sandwich according to my tastebuds and here goes a simple paneer sandwich recipe...

- Take the paneer and crumble it well,Set aside.Heat oil in a pan - add ginger garlic paste,onions and saute till golden brown.
- Then add capsicum and fry for a minute, then add chilli powder,garam masala powder,salt and tomato sauce. Give a quick stir, it should be saucy and not too dry add little water if its too dry.Then add crumble paneer.
- Mix well, cook for a minute...garnish with coriander leaves and switch off.Trim the edges of 2 slices of bread....spread a generous layer of paneer stuffing on side and close it anotehr slice of bread, press it well so that it gets sealed.Heat dosa pan with ghee and toast the bread until it turns golden brown on both sides.
Cut diagnally and serve hot / warm!
- Dont make the sauce very dry then the stuffing may spill out. THe stuffing should be moist enough to stick to the bread.
- You can also make it as sealed sandwich using sandwich maker like how I made my veg sandwich or just toast and make it open sandwich.
- You can even add other veggies like carrot and cabbage along with paneer.
- I used homemade fresh paneer so used it directly.If you want to use frozen paneer... then first thaw it then crumble it.
- You can use the same paneer stuffing for katiroll or frankie.
- You can even substitute paneer with tofu and use brown bread for a more healthier and low fat sandwich version.
