Basil Pesto Coated Paneer


1 cup fresh basil leaves,
3 walnut kernels,
5 garlic cloves,
¾ tsp black pepper,
Salt to taste,
2 tbsp olive oil,
200 grams paneer


Cut the paneer into cubes or fingers.

Grind the basil leaves, walnut kernels, garlic cloves, black pepper and olive oil into a not-too-fine paste. Marinate the paneer in this paste with the salt for an hour.

After an hour you can fry it in a non-stick tawa using no oil, as the marinade already has olive oil. Alternately you can grill it.
