This sandwich recipe is one of my favorite. It has the lovely barbeque (tandoori) taste in it. This sandwich can be made in a griller or if no griller is available then it comes out very well on a tava also. The process has three steps.
- Preparing the barbeque sauce
- making the paneer stuffing
- assembling and toasting the sandwich.
The sandwich is very easy to make with almost all readily available ingredients and can be relished anytime with a nice coffee or mocktail or juice or soup.
