Stir-fries are so conveniently quick and easy! Just chop all the ingredients. Sort them according to the order in which they are added. Heat a pan, and your delectable Paneer, Mushroom and Cashew Stir-Fry will be ready in a jiffy! Colorful capsicums and vibrant celery give this stir-fry a splash of colors, while varied sauces and pungent ingredients give it a delectable range of flavors. Roasted cashews give the stir-fry a wonderful crunch, which is quite a contrast to the soft succulence of the cottage cheese. In short, this stir-fry is a lesson in contrasts, and a very enjoyable one at that.
