Sometimes you need something that can cook fast and is tasty. Quite often I'm bored to cook full fledged meals..H also finds them too heavy in the evenings..
I love watching Tv cooking shows and one of them is the show on Etv gujarati. I saw this sandwich yesterday and I was ready to cook it today...
I did end up modifying the recipe to my liking..and before I could get any good pics of it..the sandwiches were eaten.. talk about yummy!

I loved this pic. Since I did not have any pic of the sandwich..lets say this is how H looked while eating...
List of ingredients.
8-10 slices of bread (I used garlic bread, use white, brown, multi-grain whatever works for you)
1 onion - chopped
1 capsicum - chopped finely (use a mix of green, red, yellow)
1 tsp garlic - chopped finely (5-6 cloves)
1 cup baked beans with sauce
1/2 cup paneer - diced (this wasn't in the original recipe)
1 cup boiled sweet corn (I didn't have corn, so added paneer)
salt to taste
1 tsp paprika
1 tsp oregano
2 tsp tomato ketchup
Butter the bread slices and keep aside.
In a pan, heat 1 tbsp oil, add onions, garlic. Saute till onions turn translucent. Add capsicum, corn, paneer and saute for 2-4 min.
Add the baked beans, tomato ketchup, oregano, paprika and mix well.
Add salt at the end after tasting (beans have some salt, plus cheese will have some salt too)
Put 2-3 tsp of this bean mix in between the breads, add cheese. Add olives if you wish over the cheese.
Place the second slice of bread over this, apply a bit of butter and cheese on top and grill in oven for around 5-7 min till the cheese melts.
Or you could toast it on a tava on the stove. Tastes as good.
There was some mix left over in the morning, so I tried using burger mayonnaise instead of butter, added the mix and toasted to a crisp brown on the tava...tasted awesome!
Mix and match and see what you come up with!!
