Palak Paneer Sandwich

When you grow up in a food-loving family it so happens that some of the dishes become more than just the food. They are like family’s signature dishes. And then when you start your own family, you also try to continue the same legacy. Though both K and I share the same passion for food, we always do not see eye to eye. But when it comes down to ‘Family-Favorite’ Dishes, we are on the same page. We both would die for this sandwich anytime. No matter how full we are, we would not be able to resist a bite of this delicacy. It is executed with same taste and consistency and consumed with same passion, ALWAYS.

Knowing my love for sandwich, my mom shared this recipe after I moved to US. Initially I was bit hesitant to try as I was not sure about the taste of raw spinach in a sandwich. But still it was worth giving a try as mom had successfully tried it and she does not top the list of adventurous cooks :). I made a few changes as per my taste. And being simple, healthy and yummylicious at the same time makes it even more special.

Makes 8 Sandwiches
Preparation Time: 30 Minute
Cooking Time: 30 Minute

16 slices of bread (Whole wheat is healthy, but white tastes better :) )
5 cup spinach, chopped
1 cup paneer, crumbled
1/4 cup shredded cheddar cheese (I prefer Amul)
2 tbsp green pepper, finely chopped
1 tsp green chili, finely chopped
Salt and pepper
Lemon juice

To prepare/serve sandwich,
Coriander chutney/ketchcup

1. Mix spinach, pepper, chili, paneer and cheese in a large bowl
2. Add salt, pepper and lemon juice when ready to make sandwich 
3. Now take a slice of bread, spread butter, put the filling and cover with another slice
4. Serve hot with ketchup/chutney
