Paneer Tikka Sandwich is a delectable sandwich bursting with delicious rustic flavours of Paneer Tikka. Those who are unaware about it authentic paneer tikka is made by marinating big chunks of paneer or cottage cheese in a mixture of curd and various aromatic spices; then grilling it in a tandoor or over a charcoal oven.
In this recipe, it has been tried to bring the punch and smokiness of paneer tikka in our modern day sandwiches. The recipe however is not cumbersome and requires just few ingredients. I have also shared few other sandwiches on this blog- Spinach Corn Sandwich, Hung Curd Sandwich, Pinwheel Sandwich and Coleslaw Sandwich. These sandwich recipes are perfect for breakfast.
For making this sandwich filling, I have used Tandoori Mayonnaise from FunFoods brand. This mayo has a nice punch of flavours and aroma. It imparts a rustic taste to the filling along with a rich creaminess. It saves a lot of time and efforts of adding different spices which we would have otherwise required in making traditional paneer tikka. These days different brands have introduced Tandoori flavours mayo in market, you can use any of them. The vegetables and paneer have been grilled on a grilling pan so that it imparts a slight charred taste to the filling.
