Panini is a gem of a dish from Italian cuisine, but it can easily be fused with our dynamic Indian cuisine.
Panini is a special type of grilled sandwich, which is not made with sliced bread, but with varieties like baguette or ciabatta. If you cannot find any of those exotic breads, go for hot dog rolls instead.
In this recipe, Indian cuisine influences the Panini, which is packed with our all-time favourite Paneer Bhurji. The flaky texture of grated paneer together with the tongue-tickling effect of spice powders like garam masala and pav bhaji masala make this Paneer Bhurji Panini an irresistible one.
You can also go for one of the classic Panini recipes like Tomato Basil Mozzarella Panini or Cream Cheese Veg Panini .
