Paneer Schezwan

























  • To make paneer soft and juicy after frying take it out in ice cold water immediately after frying.
  • You can also buy Schezwan Sauce from market but nothing can beat home made Sauce so try making it at home i’ll share recpie soon.
  • If you want to make dry Paneer Schezwan then add 1/2 cup of water and simmer for little more time till water dries away.
  • Substitute Cottage Cheese with Prawns or boneless Chicken Breast to make different version of this recpie.
