these sandwiches taste best with fresh paneer. if you use frozen paneer, then the stuffing feels a bit dry. if you buy paneer from a halwai or from a store, then make sure the paneer is moist and fresh. or else you can make paneer at home.

you can grill or toast these paneer sandwiches. you will need green chutney or sandwich chutney to prepare these sandwiches. if you do not have this chutney, then you can even skip it.

  1. Love all of your recipes! Tried this one and just like the other recipes of yours, it turned out delicious! Thanks for sharing.

  2. I make sandwiches on those rare days when I feel lazy to prepare something elaborate.since I had paneer and previously prepared green chutney,this fitted the bill perfectly.tasty, filling and more importantly loved by everyone at home.

    • thanks winnie for this feedback. i also make sandwiches when i want something quick to prepare or am busy. so i make green chutney and keep in the fridge. when green chutney is ready, it is easier and quicker to make sandwiches.

  3. Hi dassana,
    It seems from the pics that you didn’t apply butter on the outer side of bread & still got crisp exterior. I was wondering because I have always applied butter on the outer side also thinking that this will give the golden look to the sandwich..

    • ruchi, i have not applied butter outside. i guess i spread too much butter on the inside of the bread. so when grilling the butter has come out on the top side through the bread and made it crisp. but many times i do not apply butter for most sandwiches on outside and they turn out crisp.

  4. Hi ,

    Thank you for all your efforts. Can you please suggest me which sandwich maker is the best available in India preferably online. Also suggest me which one has good painini and sandwich option as well.

    Thank you

    • welcome nanditha. i do not know which sandwich maker has a panini option. i am using morphy richards brand and it has grill, toast and waffle option. i have not yet tried the waffle option. but the sandwich maker is a good one.

  5. Looks so tempting. Will try it soon.
    Could you please suggest some snacks for a dinner party that can be made ahead.. Heated and served..
    Thanks in advance.
    Regards,
    Bhawna
