Pavbhaaji Panini

I wanted to try this when I first had those hot garlicky subs/panini. Panini is referred to the Italian grilled/toasted sandwich in America. My leftover pavbhaaji was handy to make this delicious sandwich.

Pavbhaaji Panini
Leftover Pavbhaaji
1 Mini French roll or Cibatta
Few fresh baby spinach leaves
1 tbsp chopped onion or caramelized onion
1 Mozzarella cheese slice/s
Few drops of olive oil to brush the bread
1 garlic clove, peeled & cut into half

1. Heat your Panini press per instructions.
2. Meanwhile slit the roll lengthwise.Brush both outer sides of roll with olive oil.
3. Place cheese pieces, spinach, bhaaji, onions and cheese pieces again.

4. Place into the Panini press. Grill for 5 minutes or per manual.
5. As soon as hot panini is out, smear garlic half on both outer sides. (Saw it on Food Network once!)
6. Cut into 2 -3 pieces.
7. Serve immediately.

Note -
1. If you use more cheese, it will taste better. I generally just use one cheese square by making smaller pieces.
2. First time, I added just cheese and bhaaji. Next time, I decided to add spinach and onions as well. The picture above shows the first panini.
3. Make sure that pavbhaaji is placed right on the cheese pieces and do not over stuff it. Else it will ooze out.
