1 cup Crumbly Cottage Cheese or Paneer Cheese 8 slIces of White Bread or any Bread of your choIce. 1 large Onion (finely chopped) 2 Green Chillies (Hari Mirch) (finely chopped) (optional) 2 medium Tomatoes (finely chopped) 1 tsp. Cumin Seeds (Saabut Sufaid Zeera) 1¼ tsp. Turmeric Powder (Haldi) 1½ tsp. Red Chilli Powder (Pisi Lal Mirch) (optional) Salt (to taste) 2 tbsp. Butter Butter


1Heat a pan on a medium flame and add the butter to it. Allow to melt and then add the cumin seeds. When they stop spluttering, add the green chillies and onion. Fry till the onion is soft. Add the tomatoes, turmeric powder, red chilli powder and salt to taste. Stir well. Cook for 2 minutes stirring frequently. Add the cottage cheese or paneer cheese and mix well. Stir fry for 3-4 minutes and then turn off fire. Allow to cool a little. Lay the slices of bread on a clean cutting board and butter. Now put a generous amount of the prepared paneer mixture on 4 of the slices. Spread to cover entire slice. Top with another buttered slice. Grill or toast the sandwich till crispy and golden. This is especially nice when done in a sandwich toaster which seals the edges, preventing the paneer from falling out later. Serve hot with ketchup or any chutney of your choice.
