Course: Breakfast
Cuisine: Global, Indian
Servings: 3


  • 6 Bread slices
  • 1 cup Spinach Finely chopped, tightly packed
  • 2 Garlic
  • 1 teaspoon Chilli flakes or crushed black pepper
  • 2 tablespoon Sour cream or hung curd
  • ½ cup Mozarella cheese or cheddar
  • ¼ teaspoon Sugar
  • 2 teaspoon Oil
  • Salt as needed


  • Wash spinach firstly and finely chop it. Finely chop garlic too.
  • Since we wash and cut, there will be some water retained, but let it be there, it will help in cooking.
  • Heat oil in a pan and add finely chopped garlic to it.
  • Sautee for a minute and add spinach, salt, sugar.
  • Cook until spinach reduces in volume and gets cooked. Take care not to over cook.
  • Transfer to a bowl. Add sour cream, pepper powder to it. Mix well and keep aside.
  • Mean while you can heat the sandwich maker with the griller plates.
  • If you do not have sandwich maker, you can do this in stove top with tawa/ flat pan too.
  • In a slice of bread, spread the prepared spinach mix and sprinkle some cheese in the middle.
  • Grill for 2-3 minutes in a well greased sandwich maker, after the green light is on or follow the instructions from the manual of your sandwich maker.
  • Just make sure to bring golden crisp lines over the sandwich.


  • I have used grated mozzarella cheese, but you can use your own choice of cheese.
  • Make sure to use less, otherwise it will ooze out as you grill.
  • Grilling for longer time may also cause the cheese to ooze out. I prefer grated cheese over sliced cheese sheets for my grilled sandwiches.
  • I also spread the cheese in the middle more.
  • You can use some grated paneer or cottage cheese too along with cheese and reduce the cheese.
