Paneer bhurji sandwich recipe in 10 mins | Tawa paneer sandwich

Paneer bhurji sandwich recipe made on a tawa under 10 mins. Sandwiches are a good time savers during the busy days when one doesn’t have much time to cook. This paneer bhurji sandwich is no exception and can be made for a quick breakfast or even a meal for 2 under 10 mins.

I usually make fresh paneer for any recipes that call for crumbled paneer, so this one too I used fresh homemade paneer that was made using 2 cups full fat milk & 1½ tsp lemon juice. But this recipe works good even with store bought frozen paneer. This tawa paneer sandwich recipe is a kids friendly recipe and can be served even to toddlers.

There is no chopping of onions or tomatoes involved except using the raw slices, so that does the trick of saving some time. This can be made on a tawa/ griddle, sandwich toaster, grill or even can be made in oven. I have made this in a skillet since I feel that is the quickest way.

How to make paneer bhurji sandwich

1. Smear softened butter or ghee over the bread slices and toast them until golden. If you are making 2 servings, Take a larger skillet and toast them all at one time or two. If you prefer to toast or grill the sandwiches then skip doing it on the tawa.

Too good . Very easy as mentioned. Additional tips is , I use tawa only and so I keep a flat bowl with water as weight on the sandwich for few seconds after stuffing . It binds the bread with stuff and won’t spill.
