Barbeque Paneer Sandwich


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.

  1. Preparing the barbeque sauce
  2. making the paneer stuffing
  3. 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.
