Tava Masala Sandwich

“A packet or two of Verka Paneer waiting in the fridge can help you muster up a multitude of delicious dishes. Paneer is versatile, nutritious and cooks in a blink! Tava Masala sandwich is my all time favourite snack, using a chunk of wondrous Verka Paneer! A salad on the side, or a milk shake will make it a complete and balanced meal on a summer evening.”

 

Tava Masala Sandwich Ingredients:

  • 200 gm Verka Paneer (grated)
  • 1 small onion, minced
  • ½ cup capsicum, chopped finely
  • 8-10 slices of fresh bread
  • 2½ tbsp mustard sauce
  • 2 tbsp mayonnaise
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Chili flakes or chili sauce (optional)
  • Verka Butter to spread

 

Method:

  • Mash together the Verka Paneer, onion, capsicum, mayonnaise, salt and pepper.
  • Add chili flakes or chili sauce if using.
  • Arrange bread slices on a clean,flat surface, then thickly spread some mixture on alternate slices. Gently press every sandwich together.
  • Brush the outer surface of each sandwich with melted butter and pan-fry on a hot ‘tava’ or a frying pan.
  • Flip over to fry the other side, then remove on to a platter. Cut into triangles and serve with ketchup or a mint chutney.

 

Note: Instead of a ‘tava’, a grill/sandwich maker can also be used for this recipe. You can interchange the greens with grated carrots and fresh coriander. If you don’t like mayonnaise, use cream (malaai) from the top of boiled milk. Grated Verka cheese can be blended into the filling for a pleasing dimension. Cheese is quite salty, so be careful while adding salt to the mixture.
