The perfect sandwich for those who love Oriental cuisine! The Schezwan Paneer Cold Sandwich is marked by a really tangy and peppy flavour derived from Schezwan sauce, tomato ketchup and freshly-prepared sour cream. The tangy coating of sauces makes the otherwise plain paneer a zesty tidbit to bite into, complemented ably by juicy and spicy capsicum. All in all, this cold sandwich is a really tongue-tickling treat!
