Ingredients (measuring cup used, 1 cup = 250 ml)
for the sandwich stuffing:
1.5 tbsp butter or olive oil or sunflower oil
⅓ cup finely chopped onion or 1 medium sized onion, finely chopped
1 or 2 green chilies, finely chopped
1 teaspoon finely chopped ginger
½ cup boiled or steamed green peas
1 teaspoon cumin powder/jeera
1 teaspoon coriander powder/dhania powder
½ teaspoon black pepper powder or crushed black pepper or add as per taste
3 tablespoons chopped coriander leaves
1 teaspoon chat masala powder
1 cup chopped paneer cubes or 200 grams paneer, chopped in small cubes
salt as required
other ingredient's for the paneer toast
10 to 12 slices of whole wheat bread or brown bread or white bread or multi grain bread
butter to apply on toast, (optional)
How to make the recipe:
preparing the sandwich filling:
heat butter or oil in a pan.
then add the finely chopped onions. also add the chopped ginger.
saute till the onions becomes translucent.
now add the chopped green chilies and stir again.
sprinkle salt and stir again.
now add the ½ cup of boiled green peas. stir well.
then add coriander powder, cumin powder and pepper powder. also add 3 tablespoons chopped coriander leaves.
stir and cook for another 2 to 3 mins on a low flame.
add chopped paneer cubes.
sprinkle chaat masala.
stir all and cook for another 1 to 2 mins on a low flame.
switch off the flame and allow the mixture to cool down. otherwise the toast sandwich would get soggy.
assembling and preparing 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.
