The Paneer Cheese Toast is an awesome snack that features an exciting interplay of two types of cheese – fresh cottage cheese as well as processed cheese.

Essentially, the paneer is cooked with veggies and spice mixes like garam masala and pav bhaji masala to get a tongue-tickling topping.

Bread, when cooked with this paneer mixture and a further topping of grated processed cheese imbibes rich flavours and unique textures.

When you munch on each bite of the Paneer Cheese Toast, you can feel the flaky, soft mouth-feel of paneer as well as the gooey delight of molten processed cheese, all interspersed with the exciting flavours of the spices used.

Indeed, this is one tea-time snack that will make your day a delightful one. You can also serve this as a starter at parties .
