As the temperatures drop, one really craves warm and comforting food! What better than a bowl of piping hot soup?? Nothing else shouts comfort than this age old remedy.

Schezwan potatoes is a delicious, hot and tangy Indo Chinese dish. Like most Indo Chinese dishes, it hardly takes much time for this dish to come together. Prepping up your ingredients is the key! Here, boiled and fried baby potatoes are tossed in a schezwan sauce base and of course much easier if you have the sauce already which is the main ingredient here.
