Grilled Paneer Sandwich

This is a simple paneer sandwich in which the marinated paneer is either grilled or pan fried and then lined up with vegetables and served with your choice of bread. I used thin multi grain sandwich bread (from Sam’s club) which is rich in fiber. You can serve it for a lite dinner or as a healthy breakfast with a cup of milk or juice.

Preparation time: 20 minutes

Cooking and serving: 10 minutes

No. of serving: 4


  • Multigrain sandwich bread – 4
  • Fresh paneer – 200 gram (7 oz)
  • Half onion, thinly sliced
  • One tomato, thinly sliced
  • Half cucumber, thinly sliced
  • Fresh spinach – 1 cup
  • Salt and pepper
  • Sandwich spread (homemade or store bought)

For marination:

  • Ginger garlic paste – 1/2 tsp
  • Olive oil – 1 tbsp
  • Vinegar – 1 tbsp
  • Soy sauce – 1/2 tsp
  • Salt and pepper

Method of Preparation:

  1. Slice paneer thinly or a little thicker according to your need and place it in a wide bowl.
  2. Mix all the ingredients for marination separately and add it to the bowl and mix gently so that paneer is coated well. Leave it for 15 minutes.
  3. Heat a wide pan or a grill and place the marinated paneer and cook both sides till it is brown. Do not let it become crisp. It should be brown and soft.
  4. Cook all the paneer and toast the bread if you like and spread the sandwich chutney on the inner side of the bread and start layering paneer followed by the vegetables one by one.
  5. Sprinkle some salt and pepper and serve with ketchup or just like that.

Note: I used store bought sandwich spread called “Swad Bombay sandwich spread” which is a green chutneyĀ available in Indian stores. You can also use cilantro and mint chutney as spread. Soon I will be posting a recipe for sandwich spread. Keep posted.
