Paneer/goat cheese and bell pepper Grilled Sandwich

         Our good friend and neighbor gave 2 nice loaves of bread and some red capsicums, i made this veg.sandwich based on a sandwich we had in a coffee shop, that had grilled capsicum/bell pepper, grilled cheese, chicken and pesto in it. I used mint spread, grilled capsicum and grilled paneer/ goat cheese.

1 loaf         bread
4 ounce     paneer
1 medium  onion 
2                green chilli 
1/2 bunch  mint leaves
1 tsp          oil 
1 big          red bell pepper
1/4 tsp       lemon juice
salt            to taste   

Chop the onion and green chilli pepper
Mint chutney:
1Heat oil in a pan and saute onion, green chilli and mint-till the raw smell no longer remain. 
2Grind it into a fine paste.
3Add salt and lemon juice and keep it aside.
1. Quarter the red bell pepper, take off the seeds and rub oil on both sides.
2Heat a non stick pan (med/high), place the red pepper pieces on it, turn it over after it gets brown (or grill it wrapped in a foil)
3Remove it from the pan when it gets soft yet firm.
4Remove the peel and keep it aside.
5Cut the bread into half, spread half the mint chutney to the cut side of the bread.
6. Toast both half of the bread in a pan or in an oven.
7Cut the paneer/ goat cheese into 4 slices, 
8Place the paneer slices on the bread slice and grill it till the paneer becomes soft.
fix the sandwich: 
10Arrange the grilled bell peppers over the bread spread it with the mint chutney, place the grilled cheese over it, spread the remaining mint chutney over paneer/ cheese. We can add cream cheese to the mint spread.
11. Cut the sandwich into 4 equal parts.
