Now in a similar manner, I have prepared Paneer (Cottage Cheese) Bruschetta from Anjum Anand's "I Love Curry". This fusion dish came out very well and everyone in my family liked it. Next time, I am planning to make my own Indian version of topping thereby trying to experiment more on fusion dishes.
Bruschetta is an Italian Snack or Appetizer which consists of a toasted bread slice topped with meat or any vegetables. It is very easy to prepare and only the topping differs from one variety to another. You can be creative with the selection of the topping so as to make your own version.
Preparation and Cooking time: 20 minutes
Serves: 4 (Makes 8 slices)
Baguette/Ciabatta/Any Italian loaf - 1 no, cut into 1 inch thinkness diagonally
Paneer - 1/2 cup, crumbled
Capsicum - 2 tablespoons, finely chopped
Onion - 2 tablespoons, finely chopped
Coriander leaves - 2 tablespoons , finely chopped
Cherry/Plum tomatoes - 4 nos, quartered
Olive oil - 1 teaspoon + extra for toasting the bread
Pepper powder - 1/2 teaspoon / as required
Salt - to taste
1) Take the crumbled panner in the mixing bowl.
1) Instead of toasting the bread, you can also bake them. Place the bread slices in the 180C preheated oven and bake it for 5 minutes or until crisp.
2) Try to use fresh paneer for best results.
