Saute till the onions becomes translucent.

Now add the 1/2 cup of boiled green peas. Stir well.
Then add coriander powder, cumin powder and pepper powder. Also add 3 tablespoons chopped coriander leaves.

Switch off the flame and allow the mixture to cool down. Otherwise the toast sandwich would get soggy.
making paneer toast sandwiches
Slice the edges of the bread, this step is optional.
Apply some butter over the bread. I have skipped this process as we had used butter while frying the matar-paneer mixture. So it's optional. Spread the paneer-matar filling on the bread slices.
Top with another bread. Repeat the same with other bread slices.
Place in a preheated toaster or grill. You can also toast these sandwiches in a hand held stove top toaster.
Toast the sandwiches till crisp and golden.
Slice the paneer toast and serve them hot with green chutney or tomato ketchup.
You could toast the sandwich on an electric sandwich maker or toast them in a hand held stove top toaster.
For the filling use any veggies you like mushrooms, cabbage, capsicum etc along with the other ingredients for the recipe.
Spice powders and green chilies can be adjusted as per your taste. If making for small kids then you can reduce the spice powders, ginger and skip the green chilies.
Instead of paneer you can also use tofu.
