This is a kid friendly, easy to make snack which will please any hungry eater. I am glad to have stumbled upon this recipe while looking for kid friendly snacks. As you know coming up with a snack idea for the little ones that they will like can be a challenge. Even after putting in much effort the dish could be a hit or miss and might take multiple attempts or trials to come up with one that they really like.
When I saw the recipe, I knew the kiddo would like this. After all which kid would not like the combination of ketchup and paneer? I knew he likes bread and paneer, but then would he like this combination and would he be willing to try it out again? I tried it and not only the kiddo but the parents also loved it! So I am pretty sure I will be making this often.
Recipe Source: Adapted from Edible Garden
- 1 cup paneer (crumbled)
- 2 tsp ketchup
- 6 slices of bread ( I used whole wheat bread, you can use the white bread)
- 1/2 tsp red chilli powder
- 1/4 tsp garam masala
- 1/2 tsp ginger+ garlic paste
- handful coriander leaves ( chopped finely)
- Salt to taste
- Take a medium sized bowl and add the crumbled paneer. Add red chilli powder, garam masala, salt and chopped coriander to this. Mix well with your finger tips.
- Now add the tomato ketchup and the ginger garlic paste. Mix again well until incorporated. The filling is ready, set it aside.
- Heat a tava on medium heat and get ready to prep the bread.
- On a chop board, take one slice and cut the sides of the bread to remove crust. Do this for the remaining slices as well.
- Using a rolling pin, roll the bread evenly until it gets flat on all the sides.
- Take a spoonful of the paneer mixture and place it in the center of the rolled bread. Arrange it in such a way that it does not stay in the center but is parallel to one of the side.
- Roll the bread all the way and brush the end with little butter, so that is sticks and edges are covered.
- Place these on the hot tava and pour oil onto the sides. Carefully turn them on all the sides so that the bread gets evenly toasted.
- Do that with the remaining bread slices. Cut them into two parts and serve hot with tomato ketchup
