Panini Malaysian Style


And so, I had a wonderful time in Italy (Lake Como & Lake Lugano). Just so amazing, I love those places we visited that holds so much of history, I also sampled the various Italian dishes. Sadly wasn't my kind of food. Don't get me wrong please. Nothing could be faulted, just that for a typical Malaysian like me, it has to be our typical spicy food (Mutton Mint Yogurt Gravy & Spicy Seafood Fried Rice). Regardless, after returning home, I actually made Panini. Of course Malaysian style panini, purely a vegetarian version. Bread (Bread Sardine Roll) stuffed with cheese, veggies and onion, topped with chilli sauce and tomato sauce and grilled over portable grill. My other half-half loved every bit of it (Dory Fish Sandwich & Lamb Burger), what about me are you asking? Well, did I have a choice, I ate because I didn't want to remain in the kitchen to cook a different dish for me, myself and I.

Ingredients 
4 slices of bread 
4 slices of cheddar cheese
8 slices of tomato
1 onion - slice into rings
4-5 pieces lettuce leaves - tear into smaller pieces
Chilli sauce - as needed
Tomato sauce - as needed
Method:
Place  a slice of cheese atop a slice of bread.
Over it, add two slices of tomato, lettuce leaves and onion.
Drizzle in chilli sauce and tomato sauce.
Another slice of cheese atop and cover with a slice of bread.
Do the same to the other two slices of bread. 
Basically decking up.   
Do the same to the other two slices of bread, meaning decking up with the ingredients.
Place filled bread on a heated portable grill,  and atop with a baking tray and two heavy cans.
Grill on both sides.
Remove and slice into two. 
Don't forget to trend alongside "cook with nava-k" on every other social media please!!

  1. This looks like a tasty excuse to pull out the panini press. This definitely proves that sandwiches do not require meat in or to be tasty. Tomatoes, onions and cheese-yum! You are right about meat in sandwiches. A lot of times having a meaty sandwich for lunch means I am not really hungry for dinner!

  4. I like these simple paninis when meat is not in my home.
    I have wrapped a brick in tin foil for making paninis on a grilled griddle.
