Paneer Sandwich is a healthy and filling meal option. It is a great vegetarian sandwich. It is loaded with vegetables. I have used green chutney and Indian spices to flavour it. Alternatively, you can add oregano, basil and other mixed herbs. Do try this out if you can get French Loaf in your local bakery. Of course you can make this sandwich with normal loaves too. The non-veg variation of this sandwich is with shredded hard boiled eggs. Either way it tastes amazing.

  2. Take the crumbled paneer in a bowl. Mix salt, pepper, red chili powder, cumin powder, chaat masala and amchoor powder (dry mango powder) as per your taste. Keep this aside. If you want to add an extra punch, mix in 1 tbsp of some Indian pickle with this. Make this paneer mix very flavourful.
  3. On the bottom part of the loaf, spread the green chutney. On top of this add the crumbled paneer.
