About Schezwan Sauce

Schezwan or Sichuan or Szechuan is a style of Chinese cuisine originating from Sichuan province in South West China. Schezwan Sauce is fiery hot with a pungent flavour from garlic and red chillies.

Schezwan sauce has gained popularity all over the world, especially in Indian and Indo-Chinese cuisines. This sauce is commonly used as a dipping sauce for snacks, as a marinade for meats or as a flavoring for curries, stir-fries, noodles, fried rice and more such dishes. You can also use it as a marinade sauce for vegetables and meat dishes.

Schezwan Sauce can vary in terms of spiciness and also flavour. As some use milder variety chillies and also skip sichuan pepper. But the authentic flavour and taste comes from this special type of pepper called sichuan pepper.

Notes

  • Adding more oil is mandatory, the oil should float on top as a layer .This increases the shelf life of the sauce.
  • You can add 1 tsp chilli sauce too.
  • Cook till oil separates and starts to leave the sides of the pan.
  • You can even add the red chillies with seeds but I prefer to remove it to reduce the spiciness.
  • You can use fully kashmiri red chillies or regular chillies or use a combination of both.
  • You can even add 2 tbsp of chopped celery if you prefer.
  • If you use kashmiri red chillies it is okay to add it  as such without removing the seeds as they are less spicy.
  • You can use this sauce as a condiment for snacks or use it for schezwan recipes like fried rice,noodles etc.
  • The sauce should stay good atleast for 3-4 weeks if refrigerated.
  • Sichuan pepper is a special ingredient used in this sauce for unique flavour but you can skip it too. It is readily available in amazon from where I bought it.
