Chutney Grilled Cheese

This is the comforting sandwich that you'll ever want! The mint-cilantro chutney brightens up everything and this grilled cheese gets its amazing flavor from the same chutney. It is filled with simple veggies like corn, bell pepper, and onion that almost staple in every home. This is great for any meal.

I have used ricotta cheese in this recipe but I use fresh paneer too interchangeably in this recipe based on what I have on hand. This lends a creaminess to the filling. This grilled cheese can be made with chutney, paneer, and cheese if you do not have veggies. Busy weeknight? no worries, this sandwich will bring peace to your home! 

Make sure to use green chutney that is thick and not watery like the one used for chaat. If not, the bread will soak up the liquid and it will be a soggy mess. I love this in any bread, especially with sourdough slices. The flavor is more enhanced and the sandwich has an amazing texture because of chewy bread. Butter adds to the crispy texture and flavor, use as per preference.

It's time for sandwich in our Healthy Wellthy Cuisine group. Who loves sandwich? Of course everyone does and there are million ways to make a filling sandwich. I am sharing this family favorite for the same event.

We love sandwiches and grilled cheese are often made in our home. We love so much that we make dessert out of it too! Here are amazing grilled cheese recipes from the blog.

Makes 3 sandwiches

Bread slices  - 6
Thick mint-cilantro chutney - 6 tbsp
Butter - 3 tbsp
Cheese - 5-6 slices

For the filling

Ricotta cheese/fresh paneer - 3 tbsp
Onion - 3 tbsp, finely chopped
Corn - 4 tbsp
Red bell pepper - 4 tbsp, finely chopped
Green bell pepper - 4 tbsp
Cumin - 1/8 tsp
Garam masala - 1/4 tsp
Coriander powder - 1/8 tsp
Salt - a pinch


Add the ingredients listed under 'For the Filling' to a bowl, mix, and set aside.

To make sandwiches, apply a tablespoon of the green chutney to each slice of bread. Add about one-third of the filling on top of a slice with chutney. Add one or two slices of cheese. Cover with another chutney spread bread slice with chutney side facing down. 

Smear a little butter on top and grill until cheese melts and the crust turns a little crispy. This can be cooked on tawa too.

Serve immediately.
