Paneer Tikka Masala Panini
8 oz paneer, cut into ½” cubes
pinch of salt
1 cup Maya Kaimal Tikka Masala Simmer Sauce
¼ cup coarsely chopped cilantro
4 slices of bread (round loaf such as sourdough boule)
red onion slices
Sliced jalapenos (optional)
2 tbsp soft butter
In a small saucepan, combine the cubed paneer, salt and Tikka Masala Simmer Sauce, simmer for 2-3 minutes. Take the pan off the heat and mix in the cilantro.
Heat a panini press or grill pan. (You can use a griddle or cast-iron pan to toast the sandwiches as well)
Assemble the sandwiches: Divide the paneer mix between two pieces of bread. Top with sliced onion, and jalapeno slices, if using.
Place the remaining 2 slices of bread on the toppings.
Spread the outside of the sandwiches with soft butter and toast on the panini press or grill pan until grill marks appear. (Note: Paneer doesn’t melt!)
Cut each sandwich in half and enjoy with your favorite chilled beverage or chai!
