Veggie Grilled Cheese Sandwich

    Onion Tomato Cucumber Grilled Cheese Sandwich

    My husband loves grilled cheese sandwich and that actually is the main reason why I got a grill pan. You can make sandwiches using the sandwich maker but the griller/grill pan makes them even more appetizing and not to forget the vegetables that taste amazing when you grill them. The grilled cheese sandwich that we get in India usually has onion, tomato and cucumber and coriander chutney is also an integral part of it.

    I wanted to have 3 layers in this sandwich but here in US the breads are so thick that I eventually decided on using only 2 breads. This is a very easy recipe, you don’t need to do anything other than chopping the vegetables so even if you are a beginner in the kitchen, you can give this sandwich a try. Also use any bread of your choice. We always eat whole wheat bread at home but the day I decided to make these sandwiches I was not able to find my 100% whole wheat bread and so used this white bread in place.

    Indian Grilled Cheese Sandwich

    * Use any cheese slice of your choice. I used Amul cheese slice just because husband loves it!

    * Sprinkling of shredded parmesan cheese on top is optional but highly recommended.

    * You can either make your own coriander chutney at home or get one from the Indian store.

    * I used sweet onion for this sandwich, you can definitely use red onions in place.

    * The reason I haven’t included the quantity of chutney and parmesan cheese in the recipe is because this depends on your taste and preference. Some people like me do not like a lot of cheese and then there are some who can never have enough of it. So add as much or as less as you please!
