To assemble sandwich, place sandwich filling on top of a bread slice. Cover the filling with another slice of bread. Spread butter on top of the bread slice. Place the bread slice on to a sandwich maker with buttered part down. Now spread some butter on top of the other slice. Cook till it get the grill marks. Paneer bhurji sandwich is ready. Serve hot with a cup of chai, coffee, or drink of your choice.

If you don’t have a grill pan or sandwich maker, you can use dosa pan or tawa and have the bread toasted.
