A new yummy post for veggie lovers....Crispy Paneer Schezwan!

I ended up making this dish as I wanted to consume Paneer stocked in refrigerator and was tired of making Paneer Burji or Palak Paneer.

I prepared this dish by deep frying the paneer fingers.You can bake then or try frying in Air fryer as it will be less oily right!
It's an awesome starter for any parties,as well as potlucks.
Yummy crispy Paneer is very attractive for kids too.

Try this dish and enjoy!
