Paneer is perfect for this toasted sandwich recipe—the cheese is creamy but doesn’t melt completely, adding a satisfying texture to an easy tomato sauce that’s spiced with jalapeno, ginger, coriander, and cumin and mustard seeds. Searing the paneer leaves some bits a little crunchier than others while adding a smoky flavor to the sauce; Sach is my favorite brand.

Ingredients

Directions

  1. Sauce:
  2. Heat oil in a large Dutch oven or other heavy pot over medium. Cook paneer in a single layer, undisturbed, until golden brown underneath, about 2 minutes. Turn over and cook on other side until golden brown, about 2 minutes. Transfer to a medium bowl; let cool slightly, then crumble into bite-size pieces. Set aside.
  3. Add onion, garlic, jalapeno, ginger, cumin seeds, and mustard seeds to same pot and cook (still over medium), stirring often, until onion is softened and translucent, about 5 minutes. Add coriander, cayenne, and turmeric and cook, stirring occasionally, until fragrant, about 3 minutes. Stir in tomatoes, salt, and 1 cup water. Bring to a simmer, then reduce heat to low and stir in reserved paneer. Cover pot and cook, stirring occasionally, until sauce is slightly thickened, 15–20 minutes.
  4. Sandwich and assembly:
  5. Spread a slice of bread with ½ cup sauce. Top with some of the red onion, cheddar, and cilantro (about a sixth of each); close up sandwich with another slice of bread. Repeat with remaining ingredients to make 5 more sandwiches.
  6. Melt 1 Tbsp. butter in a small nonstick skillet over medium. Cook 2 sandwiches, pressing down occasionally on them with a spatula to ensure good contact with the pan, until underside is golden brown and crisp, about 3 minutes. Turn sandwiches over and cook until other side is golden brown and cheese is melted, about 3 minutes. Transfer to a plate. Repeat process two more times with remaining butter and sandwiches.
  7. Slice sandwiches in half and serve with ketchup.
