Easy Schezwan Paneer Taco Cups

I was always careful about not wasting any food and now, because of Covid-19 the situation is not so normal, and I am following a no waste ritual more vigilantly. We don’t have the luxury to visit a store if we are running out of one ingredient. Since putting on a mask, gloves, and the careful approach for handling the grocery/produce takes so much time, I prefer to go there only every two weeks- everything is planned now.

However, sometimes when there are some things just lying in the fridge and no one wants to eat it, a makeover is the best plan. So yesterday, when the kids wanted to have something light for lunch, I thought about making this easy Taco Cups.

These Taco Cups look so cute and after we fill them with our choice of fillings/toppings, it tastes delicious too. The possibilities are endless with these cups. I used small size tacos but you can easily use roti and use sabji as a filling. Use some cheese or chutney and an easy gourmet meal is ready to serve.
