Herbed Paneer Sandwich: A Delicious Breakfast Recipe

Paneer, a variety of cottage cheese, †is a huge favorite in Indian households. It has many virtues: easy to prepare, delicious and full of nutrients. By itself, paneer has a mild, ever-so-slightly sweet flavor, which makes it ideal for combining with vegetables, herbs and spices. Once you have made paneer at home in 10 minutes, this sandwich is amazingly easy to put together.

What You Need:

1 cup fresh paneer, crumbled (recipe here)

1 tbsp virgin olive oil

1/2 teaspoon fresh ginger, grated

a pinch of turmeric powder (optional)

1/4 tsp cayenne pepper powder

1/2 cup tomato, finely chopped

1/4 cup onion, finely chopped

1 tbsp fresh herbs (pick from among cilantro, basil, mint), washed and finely chopped

salt to taste

What You Do:

Warm the oil in a pan.

Toss in the onions, and cook until transparent.

Add the tomatoes, ginger, salt and the spice powders. Cook until mushy.

Add the paneer and mix well. Cook for another minute, stirring well.

Take the pan off the heat and sprinkle the herbs on the masala paneer.

Stuff this filling into whole wheat bread and enjoy your healthy sandwich!

Health Notes:

Paneer contains valuable proteins and vitamins, making it a good source of nutrition for vegetarians.

According to ayurvedic healers,†the addition of ginger to paneer balances its gas-causing properties.

Taste Notes:

Paneer tastes best when prepared and eaten fresh.

You can add garlic paste to this recipe for extra flavor.

Raw turmeric powder has a slightly bitter, odd taste. If you omit it, you don’t need to cook the paneer at all: simply mix all the ingredients and fill in!

Another option: Heat the olive oil and toss in the turmeric powder. Take it off the pan almost immediately, and pour it over the paneer mix. Toss well.
