Paneer Bhurji Grilled Sandwich

paneer-bhurji grilled sandwich recipe
This is pick-me-up-on-the-go snack is filled with loads of calcium and proteins from paneer. To make the sandwich healthier, use whole wheat bread and we reckon that the whole wheat variant will taste better than the white bread one. We have added a whimsical twist to the dish, to make it kid friendly, by giving the sandwich the shape of a teddy bear. You can give it any shape you like or can simply cut the square sandwich in triangular halves.
