Inspiration was a movie called Band Baja Baaraat! The guy talks about bread pakoda in such an appetizing way that i was tempted to try it out! And lo and behold who loved it? My kids ofcourse! I loved it too but it feels better as a mom to say i made this for my kids! Lol! I have tried a few variations with the stuffing, the first few times i stuck to Harpal Singh Sodi’s paneer layer in the bread pakoda, but this time i created a version of my own. This recipe is pretty versatile too and i realized this as i was making it. You can make:  1) paneer burji stuffed bread pakoda, 2) stop at the sandwich part  and have a paneer sandwich or 3) save the paneer burji and make a roll with bread or roti! 3 in 1?? Isn’t this incentive enough to atleast try it out? The flavors are by the way to die for! Flavorful paneer burji with homemade mint chutney and sweet date chutney all combined together in a sandwich or fried pakoda form or an appetizing roll! Read on to grab the ingredients and try it out!

Mint Chutney
  1. Wash and clean the mint and cilantro leaves. Grind all the ingredients in the mint chutney section with as little water as needed to get a smooth paste.

  2. Take 2 slices of bread ( cutting off the edges is optional depending on how you like it). Smear a little mint chutney on one slice and a little date chutney on the other.
  3. Add the paneer burji on one of the slices and cover with the other and lightly press them together.

  6. Drop the batter covered bread pieces carefully into hot oil and fry on medium heat till golden brown on both sides

Bread roll or Chapati/Kati roll
  1. If there is any remaining paneer burji, you can use it in a bread roll or stuff it into chapati and make chapati rolls for the next day.
  2. To make the bread roll, take a slice of bread and cut the edges. Roll the bread slice to flatten it a little with a rolling pin
  3. Spread the paneer burji on the flattened bread slice (Optional : smear mint and date chutney)
  4. Roll the bread and stick the edges with a little water and pinch it close with your fingers.
  5. Heat a pan/tava add a little oil and cook the roll on all sides by turning it frequently.

Recipe Notes

I make paneer burji with and without onions and toamtoes. This is totally optional and you can ofcourse add in some chopped fresh cilantro here also.
