3 large boiled potatoes
150 gm paneer (cottage cheese)
7-8 green chillies

2-3 tsp butter

2 tbsp chopped corriander
1 large pinch ajwain seeds (oregano)
1/2 tsp tandoori masala (of any good brand)
2 flakes grated or crushed garlic
1/2 cup curd
1/2 tbsp corn flour
Tie the curd in a muslin cloth and hang for 2 hours.
Melt the butter. Cool a little. Add the curd, tandoori masala, salt, oregano (ajwain seeds), garlic, half the coriander, half the chilli and ginger crushed.
Cut the potatoes into thick rounds.
Marinate in above mixture.
Keep aside for 10-15 minutes.
Meanwhile, crush the paneer with hands till crumbly.
Add remaining chilli, ginger, coriander, salt, cornflour and mix lightly.
Take one slice of potato, spread some paneer mixture and place another slice on top.
Arrange each sandwich on a wire rack and bake in pre-heated oven till the potatoes are browned lightly.
Each sandwich may also be dipped in the following batter, deep-fried as bhajias and served with sauce.
White flour, salt, pinch soda-bicarbonate.
Make batter with water.
It should be neither too thin not too thick.
Instead of baking, dip each sandwich and deep-fry till crisp.
