Veg Schezuan Fingers

Veg. Schezwan Fingers Recipe

Veg Schezwan fingers is a popular Indo-Chinese snack, but it is deep fried and comes with loads of calories. At Fit Foodie, our mission is to eat healthy but with no compromise on taste, so this recipe is a makeover keeping both in mind. To make it healthy we replaced maida with oats flour and whole wheat flour and the best part is it is not deep fried.
