Method

Prepare the crumbled paneer

If you are using frozen paneer, either thaw it until room temperature or boil water and keep immersed for 10 minutes. Drain the water completely and crumble it using a mixer.

Fry the veggies along with the powder masalas

Heat oil in a non-stick pan, add cumin seeds and the green chillies. When the cumin seeds begin to splutter, add the chopped onions. Fry until lightly transparent. Then add the ginger paste and saute until the raw smell goes off. Now add the tomatoes, salt and turmeric. Fry for 2 to 3 minutes. Then add the capsicum and fry until they turn soft. After that, add red chilli powder and garam masala. Mix well.

Now add the crumbled paneer

Now add the prepared crumbled paneer into the pan. Stir and fry till everything blends well just for 2 minutes. Do not fry the paneer for a long time, otherwise it will lose its softness.  Now just add the freshly chopped coriander leaves and give it a good mix. Turn off the flame and mix the lemon juice with it. Now the panner bhuji is ready. Keep it aside.

Spread tomato ketchup on the bread slices and place paneer bhurji between two

Now take the bread slices and spread tomato ketchup on one side of every slices. Then take a generous amount of paneer bhurji and spread upon it. Then add some grated cucumber on it and close it with another bread slice keeping the ketchup-side within. Repeat the process with the remaining bread slices

Spread butter on the outer side and grill

Now spread some butter on the outer side of every slices and grill them for about 4-5 minutes.

Cut diagonally and sprinkle oregano seasoning or black pepper powder

Now just cut the sandwiches diagonally to give the proper shape and sprinkle some oregano seasoning or black pepper powder on it.

Better serve with green chutney or tomato ketchup

Now the paneer sandwich is properly ready to serve. Serve hot with green chutney or tomato ketchup.
