The perfect sandwich for those who love Oriental cuisine! The Schezwan Paneer Cold Sandwich is marked by a really tangy and peppy flavour derived from Schezwan sauce, tomato ketchup and freshly-prepared sour cream.

The tangy coating of sauces makes the otherwise plain paneer a zesty tidbit to bite into, complemented ably by juicy and spicy capsicum. All in all, this cold sandwich is a really tongue-tickling treat!

This paneer sandwich is so easy and quick to make. The combination of paneer along with Schezwan sauce is just great and also the sour cream as the base instead of butter is something very unusual.
