  1. Rub a little olive oil over the capsicums. Thread them onto a skewer or pierce with a fork and roast them, one by one, over a moderately hot open flame till charred. Plunge the roasted capsicums into cold water immediately. Peel, remove seeds and cut into thin strips.
  2. Heat two tablespoons of olive oil in a pan; add garlic and saute for half a minute. Add paneer strips, roasted capsicum strips, salt, jalapeño chillies and crushed peppercorns; cook for two minutes tossing and stirring continuously. Transfer to a plate and set aside to cool.
  3. 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.
  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. Cover with the second half of the loaf. Wrap the sandwich in aluminium foil or a paper napkin and serve immediately.
