Ingredients

  • 1 tbsp sunflower oil
  • 1 tsp mustard seeds
  • ½ tsp cumin seeds
  • 1 green chilli, finely chopped
  • 1 medium onion, finely chopped
  • handful of chives, finely sliced
  • 40g cheddar, grated
  • 225g paneer, grated
  • salted butter, for spreading and frying
  • 8 slices of white bread
  • mango chutney, to serve (optional)

Method

  • STEP 1

    Heat the oil in a pan and add the mustard and cumin seeds. When they start to pop, add the chilli and onion, and cook over medium heat for 10-12 mins until the onions begin to caramelise.

  • STEP 2

    Transfer the cooked chilli and onion to a large bowl, add the chives and both cheeses, then mix well. Season with ½ tsp salt and a pinch of black pepper.

  • STEP 3

    To cook the sandwiches, you can use either a toastie maker or frying pan. Butter a slice of bread and spread with some of the paneer filling, then top with another slice and press gently.

  • STEP 4

    Heat 1 tsp butter in a pan and cook the sandwich over medium heat for 2-3 mins until golden, before flipping it over to cook the other side (add another 1 tsp of butter to the pan if needed). Serve the sandwich straightaway.
