Cheesy Sandwich - Just grab n go....

Blend paneer, onion, coriander - stuff 'em on a bread and coat them with cheese to create this grab 'n' go sandwiches! Perfect quick-fix snack that tastes sumptuous. You can do a million variations of this sandwich- add more ingredients, add more spice, saute the filling with indian spices before stuffing in your sandwich. Choice is yours!

Here is my idea-

Ingredients- (for stuffing/filling)

cup of grated paneer
1 onion chopped super fine
coriander leaves, chopped finely (1/4 cup)
green chilli - 1 (chopped finely)
Salt according to taste
ground black pepper 1/4 tsp
olive oil to blend the ingredients (about a tsp)

Other details-

Brown bread slices, a griller or toaster, cheese of your choice- I used a cheese spread readily available in the market (brand amul) ** optional **


Mix all the ingredients (listed above under filling) in a bowl and keep the filling ready- Alternatively, you can saute the onions with paneer and coriander (with Indian spices) to get a magical taste. Since this is a grab and go sandwich, I used my ingredients raw. Spread the cheese on the brown bread slices and fill it up with the stuffing. Grill them till golden brown. Serve hot with spicy green chutney or chilli sauce.

Tip- Mozzarella cheese will taste the best with this sandwich. You can use a combination of parmesan and Mozzarella or just use a spread to make things easier.

Breezy Sunday evening snack- Baked rosemary potatoes!

I recently discovered the herb Rosemary- Never had an opportunity to work with it much and when I did get an opportunity, I fell in love with this gorgeous herb! Rosemary is extremely high in Iron & Calcium- so all the more good reasons for me to get pally with this herb :)  Baby potatoes work great with rosemary and bring in the garlic and shallot twist to make an easy peasy snack!


500 gms baby potatoes (unpeeled)
5 peeled shallots cut in slices or wedges
1 tbsp extra-virgin olive oil
1/2 tbsp chopped fresh rosemary
1 tsp balsamic vinegar
5-6 crushed garlic cloves
salt & pepper according to taste

How did I make it?

Preheat oven to 200 degree celsius. Throughly wash the baby potatoes and mix them with onions, olive oil, rosemary, vinegar and garlic. Toss well till the vegetables are well coated. Grease a baking pan and place the potatoes in the pan. Bake them for about 30 to 35 minutes till the potatoes are completely cooked. Once cooked, remove them from oven and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Serve hot with chilli sauce!
