To put together the footlong, place one six inch footlong on a board and slice it in half with a serrated knife. Butter one half of the loaf and spread English mustard on the other half.

Step 4

Place two lettuce leaves on the buttered side, topped with two cheese triangles, followed by a generous portion of the paneer and capsicum mixture. Sprinkle with roughly torn basil leaves.

Step 5

Cover with the second half of the loaf. Wrap the sandwich in aluminium foil or a paper napkin and serve immediately.
