In a shallow dish, combine lime rind, juice, oil, cumin and coriander. Add veal and turn to coat evenly. Let stand for at least 10 minutes or cover and refrigerate for up to 2 hours.

Place scaloppini on greased grill over medium high heat and grill for about 5 minutes, turning once or until desired doneness.

Spread one of the naan breads with chutney and sprinkle with cilantro. Place scaloppini over chutney to cover and top with cheddar. Place remaining naan on top and place in panini press and grill for about 8 minutes or until cheese is melted and naan is golden.

Cut into quarters to serve.

Tip: Have the scaloppini grilled and ready to go so you can make this panini any time you crave it!
