Potato and Paneer Reuben Sandwich



            Reuben Sandwich is a famous beef sandwich with Sauerkraut, swiss cheese on rye bread. Today we are making a vegetarian version using potato and paneer. Sauerkraut is a fermented cabbage that gives a pickled flavor to the sandwich. As we use grated raw potato or hash brown mixture with paneer it crisps well while cooking. Rye bread has a nutty flavor that combines all together with cheese to make this a perfect sandwich with various flavors. Enjoy this with a cold salad on the side for a full meal.
