Heat remaining oil and butter on the same non-stick tawa, add red chilli paste and four tablespoons of green chutney, mix well and saute on medium heat till oil separates.
Slit each set of pavs into half without cutting through, open them out and place them over chutney mixture, cut side facing downwards.
Flip and place two pattice on base half of each set.
Place 1 tomato slice on each pattice, followed by onion and processed cheese. Grate some processed cheese over the pavs, place one tablespoon green chutney on each pattice and garnish with a little sev and coriander leaves.
