Schezwan Egg Noodles Recipe

Schezwan Egg Noodles Recipe
Schezwan Noodles is very similar to Hakka Noodles with the addition of schezwan sauce which makes the dish fiery hot.I made schezwan sauce few weeks back so wanted to make use of it so made this today.I always have dreamed about owning this cast iron skillet , was very happy when hubby bought this from his US trip.And finally today inaugurated the pan :) More recipes and feedback about this skillet coming soon as its very early to comment now.

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]

Schezwan Egg Noodles Recipe

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.
  • You can even add eggs along with veggies,scramble then add noodles finally.
  • 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 don't 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.
