Ingredients to make Herb Crusted Paneer

  • 75 gms - paneer
  • 1/4 cup - milk
  • 4 tbsp - oat bran
  • 3 tbsp - chopped fresh herbs (corriander basil and mint)
  • 1/4 tsp - red chilly flakes

How to make Herb Crusted Paneer

  1. Mix the bran, herbs, lemon juice, flakes and salt in a plate. Pour the milk in another plate.
  2. Cut the paneer in the slab of the size that you like. Dip the paneer in milk, on both side.
  3. Move it to the bran herb mix. Cover it generously and press some mix on it lightly ,as well.
  4. Heat the pan on a medium low heat until it becomes hot. Add a tsp of oil. Once it is hot enough, lower the paneer in the pan and let it stand for a few mins.
  5. Once you can see brown edges, add a few drops of oil on the uncooked side and flip it gently. Press it gently to make sure the crust cooks well on the other side as well.
  6. Transfer on serving dish and serve with a lemon.

My Tip:

In case you do not have fresh herbs, go ahead and use the dried ones- but fresh ones are more preferred. :)
