Paneer Bhurji Sandwich

By Anjana Chaturvedi @maayeka
Toasted sandwich stuffed with spiced cottage cheese mixture.
As the summer vacations have started in Indian schools and kids are at home full time.So there demands for snacks keep the mothers busy all day.
kids loves bread in all forms either simple toast ,sandwiches or any snack made with bread.My children also loves bread and sandwiches,but now I realized that I have posted just few sandwich recipes in my blog so now during this vacation period I will try to post some quick and easy sandwiches.
My favorite is- Pineapple salsa sandwich ,  Mumbai style grilled potato sandwich, the popular Middle Eastern special Falafel sandwich , Italain eggplant panini  but this paneer bhurji sandwich is very quick and mildly flavoured and an instant hit with kids, you can also add some chopped coloured capsicum and corn in it to make it more colourful and healthy.
