Schezwan sauce

Schezwan sauce goes well with fried rice and noodles which is prepared by grinding soaked red chilli into fine paste and cooking it with extra ingredients to make spicy sauce.The word Schezwan makes me happy i just love indo chinese recipes and Schezwan egg fried rice is my favorite 😀 which i prepare in just 10 mins if Schezwan sauce is handy.Usually i preserve this Schezwan sauce only for a week and not more than that and then use it in your fav dishes as Schezwan vegetable rice,Schezwan chicken fried rice,Schezwan paneer or garlic noodles 😀

  • For red color to be dominant you can use kashmiri red chili but here i have used normal red chilli without the stem part.
  • You can prepare this sauce by adding more oil and preserve in refrigerator for 2-3 weeks and use in Schezwan fried rice or Schezwan potato (any vegetable like mushroom) or in any other indo chinese noodles.
