These Paneer Discs are extremely tasty. Very crunchy, and trust me, it is a real delicacy!!
 Can me made as a Starter, Snack, or can be part of a meal too.
 I have seen several versions of this on Food Network, and finally made my own version. A very very healthy version, since I haven't used any mayonnaise or cheese spread to coat over the bread slices.

White bread - 1 loaf
Olive oil to spray
Grated cheese as required, roughly 6 cubes

For the filling
Home made paneer - 1 cup
Finely chopped onions - 1/2 cup
Finely chopped green bell pepper - 1/2 cup
Finely chopped red bell pepper - 1/2 cup
Corn, cooked for 1-2 whistles - 1/2 cup
Tomato ketchup - 1/4 cup
Salt to tastItalian mixed seasonings - 2 tsps
Red chilli flakes - 1 tsp
Pepper powder - 3/4 tsp

For the spread
Hung curd - 1/2 cup
Salt to taste
Sriracha sauce/or any red chilli sauce - 1 tsp
Dry basil - 1 tsp
Chopped fresh mint leaves - 3 tsps

Recipe cuisine: International; Category: Lunch/dinner/starter/snack
Prep time: 15 mts; Baking temp: 200 degrees C; Baking time: 8-10 mts

Yields 10 discs

Paneer, crumbled at the bottom of this bowl, topped with chopped onions, colored bell peppers and semi cooked corn

Salt to taste, red chilli flakes, pepper powder and Italian seasonings added, along with tomato ketchup

All mixed well

Spread being prepared. to the hung curd, sriracha sauce, dry basil, chopped mint leaves and salt to taste added and mixed well

Here's the healthy spread

Keep 6 slices of bread

You can use a cookie cutter or a lid

Cut roundels like this

Take a smaller lid and cut like this out of 3 slices

Coat the 3 rounds with the delicious spread prepared

Keep the outer covering cut out of 3 slices

Fill the center portion with the paneer filling

Top with grated cheese

They will be like this

Line a baking tray with foil, or you can directly keep on a tray too. Liberally spray Olive oil on the tray or foil, and arrange them neatly. In the mean time, pre heat the Oven at 200 degrees C for 10 minutes. Also, spray Olive oil on the top surface of the discs.

I kept some filling on the small roundels too, and topped with cheese. I was running short, so I used up a couple of slices of brown bread too.

Picture below shows you the discs baked for 10 minutes

These are the small rounds, baked

Serve this excellent Paneer discs with ketchup, I also made Mango Lassi as accompaniment

* Any kind of filling can be made
*Any kind of cheese spread or amul butter can be used as a spread
* The bread has to be very very fresh, just bought and which has not been refrigerated
* If you don't mind the color being slightly dark, brown or multigrain slices too can be used
* The cut corners can be used to make bread crumbs
* And the small roundels can be topped and baked, so nothing goes waste
* Can be served with Green chutney also.
