Paneer Cheese sandwich

I wanted to make Paneer cheese sandwich, and I have been experimenting making paneer at home for some time now.  For those unfamiliar with this cheese, Paneer is prepared by adding acidic food, such as lemon juice, vinegar to hot milk to separate the curds from the whey. The resulting curds are drained in muslin or cheesecloth and the whey is pressed out. The resulting paneer is dipped in chilled water for 2–3 hours to improve its texture and appearance.

Paneer cheese sandwich is an easy source of proteins from the milk solids. Addition of cheese to wholemeal bread makes it a fulfilling snack. This open sandwich is therefore an easy sandwich or toast option…..quick and filling….healthy too.

This is perfect for the lunch box with a side of colorful salad or as  an after school snack. So try this recipe and let me know what you think.
