Paneer Sandwich Recipe

This is a very simple sandwich recipe made with paneer stuffing. Paneer is a good source of protein and calcium. This sandwich is great for adults and for growing children.Those who are on diet can opt for low fat paneer. If you have green chutney ready, this can be prepared in a jiffy.

(Cut the brown crust into different shapes and ask your kids to decorate the sandwich. I have kept that black dot for eyes using picasa .You can use olives or grapes or raisins or just a small piece of paneer for the eyes.Kids will love this paneer sandwich)

   Ingredients needed

   Whole wheat brown bread - 4
   Paneer - 75 grams (grated or crumbled)
   Green chutney -2-3 tsp
   Onion - 1 finely chopped (medium size)
   Green chillies -2 very finely chopped (omit this if it is for kids)
   Coriander leaves - 2 tbsp finely chopped
   Butter as needed
   Bread Toaster or tawa


I used homemade paneer for making this sandwich. Check how to make paneer at home.

Crumble or grate paneer.

Cut the brown corners of the bread.


In a bowl, mix paneer, finely chopped onions, green chillies, green chutney, finely chopped coriander leaves and salt together. Now the stuffing is ready.

Take 2 bread slices, apply butter on one side for both the breads, keep a tbsp of stuffing on the buttered side of 1 bread and close it with the other bread with the buttered side facing down.

Butter the outer surface of the bread slightly if required or just grease the bread toaster and toast on both sides till golden brown.

Cut it diagonally and enjoy as such or with tomato ketchup. Repeat the process for the rest of the bread.

This can also be had as a snack with evening tea. Enjoy!

  20. Hi Padhu, Thank you for your site with such variety of recipes.. i like your presentation skills- simple and easy to make.. and looks appetizing for kids !
    All the best

  21. Yummilicious! Padhu, you have done it again! This is a "gem" for busy housewives - easy to make and comes out tasting great! I must admit to a couple of changes I had to make - 1) I did not have either coriander leaves or mint leaves at home; I happened to have a bottle of Olive sandwich spread which I used instead (quite effective I must say :-) 2) To spice it up a little I made powder from cumin, coriander seeds and black peppercorns after roasting them; then added to the mix.

    Everyone loved it and it is quite filling too - so makes for an easy but hearty breakfast!
