Minty Paneer Sandwiches





I and my daughter are paneer lovers. I don’t know, how many times I have mentioned this, in my  blog itself. Anything that has paneer in it is heartily welcomed by my daughter.  Most of the days her school lunch box would contain a few bits of leftovers, but the days, I prepare something with paneer, the box would be polished off clean. She doesn’t mind eating it plain as well.

I remember a small incident which happened sometime ago. I usually like to stock a block of paneer in the freezer, which mostly comes in handy while preparing lunch for my daughter. Now, even though she would love to eat paneer everyday, I give it to her only once or twice in a week. One fine morning I was out of stock of any veggies other than a few onions and tomatoes. My mind immediately went to the paneer sitting in the freezer. Here, there was a surprise for me. When I opened the freezer, I could see only the empty wrapper of the paneer packet. I knew this had to be lil one’s job. When I asked her, she told me that she had been sneaking and having small bites of paneer every now and then J

When Kalyani announced this month’s magic ingredients, I was really glad. My daughter also was very happy ‘cos she got have some scrumptious sandwiches. I am sure all paneer lovers will love these healthy and delicious sandwiches.
