How To Make Schezwan Paneer | Schezwan Paneer Recipe:
First for the fiery sauce, we need to soak red chillies and make a smooth paste. Now In a bowl add cornflour, water, salt and black pepper powder and make slurry to dip your paneer and marinate for 10 mins.
Shallow fry these paneer chunks and let it sit while you prepare the schezwan gravy. In a pan add oil, ginger-garlic, spring onions, and fry for a while. Add the chilli paste and some schezwan peppercorns, soy sauce and vinegar. Let this cook until the oil sticks to the side.
