Schezwan Noodles Recipe - Schezwan Veg Noodles

Schezwan Noodles Recipe
Schezwan Noodles is very similar to Veg Hakka Noodles with the addition of schezwan sauce which makes the dish fiery hot.I love adding more vegetables in my noodles as it gives a good amount of crunch while eating. Schezwan Noodles is a very easy Indo Chinese recipe prepared with noodles, vegetables and schezwan sauce as main ingredients.I have given alternate if you don't have homemade schezwan sauce in hand in my notes section.

Schezwan / Sichuan / Szechuan is a style of Chinese cuisine originating from Sichuan province in southwestern China.Schezwan Sauce has bold flavours,especially the pungency and spiciness resulting from liberal use of garlic and chilies[Source : Wikipedia]

My Notes:

  • This doesn't require much oil as the schezwan sauce already has good amount of oil in it.
  • If you prefer add 1/8 tsp soya sauce.
  • Use freshly ground pepper for a great flavour.
  • Sauteing the veggies in high flame gives a nice smoky flavour and also helps retain its crunchiness without the raw smell.
  • Cook noodles perfectly not too mushy or undercook it.It should be soft yet slightly crunchy enough to bite.
  • Make sure to toss the noodles in oil to avoid sticking.
  • If you dont have schezwan sauce in hand, for a instant version add red chillies, ginger and garlic along with little water and grind it to a fine paste.Along with garlic and spring onions add this paste and saute till raw smell leaves.
