  • 1 packet The Spice Tailor Original Tikka masala
  • 150g paneer, cut into long 1cm thick slices
  • 4 slices wholemeal bread or other bread, cut into thin or medium slices
  • A few lettuce leaves (I use iceberg lettuce)
  • A few finely sliced rounds of red onion, separated
  • 4 tsp. mayonnaise (can be light mayo, if preferred)
  • 2 tsp. lemon juice
  • 2 tsp. milk, or more
  1. Mix together the sauces leaving the spices for another day. Place the paneer in the marinade and leave to absorb the flavours for 20 minutes. Place a piece of foil on the floor of the grill and put the grill on high.
  2. Transfer the paneer to the grill and cook for 8-10 minutes or until the edges are charring. Meanwhile, toast the bread. Stir together the mayo, lemon juice and milk and season to taste, I add a lot of black pepper.
  3. Spread the mayo over one piece of toast, add the red onions, then a layer of tomatoes and then lettuce and finally top with the paneer and the last toast. Slice in half and serve.
