Schezuan Gobi

Hi
I am a little wary of weekends....Well that is because i think it a holiday for me from the kitchen and my family thinks it is holiday for them from their routine....meaning they will want something different, nice, delicious food to be dished out at regular intervals:-)Jokes apart:-)...I love the weekends as I get to spend some quality time with my family.And snacks on weekends need to be everyone's favourite too. So schezuan gobi is my daughters favourite and my hubby happens to like it too
