Grilled Cheese-Indian Style

ranjani24's picture
Grilled cheese is my ultimate comfort food, and I make a lot of different versions of it. This is my Desi style grilled cheese. I like cutting it up into tiny triangles and stacking it up on a pretty platter for an easy hors d'oeuvre.
  Shredded cheese 1 Cup (16 tbs) (Cheddar, Jack, Swiss, Fontana Etc.)
  Onion 1⁄4 , finely chopped
  Tomato 1 , finely chopped
  Green chilly 1 , finely chopped with seeds (Skinny)
  Red chilli powder/Cayenne pepper 1⁄2 Teaspoon
  Green bell pepper 1⁄2 , finely chopped
  Finely chopped cilantro 1⁄4 Cup (4 tbs) (1 Handful)
  Mayonnaise 1 Teaspoon
  Coriander chutney 1 Teaspoon
  Mustard 1 Teaspoon (Dijon Or Whole Grain)
  Horseradish cream 1 Teaspoon
  Salt To Taste
  Pepper To Taste
  Whole grain bread slices 4

Combine all the ingredients for the filling together in a large bowl.
Spoon the filling onto the sliced bread.
Heat a grill pan and melt a little butter on it.
Once the grill pan/Panini pan heats up, grill the sandwiches for a few minutes, until you get nice grill marks on either side.
Take the sandwiches off the grill, and cut them into triangles.
