Well, I would say first that just trust me comepletely and make this mouth-watering, versatile Schezwan sauce already because I’m sure it will blow your mind. Seriously, I mean what’s not to like? Obviously, the Schezwan sauce recipe is very easy-to-follow and simple. Also, it uses the same old indo-chinese standard ingredients that you probably already have in your kitchen. And as far as the taste is concerned, it is hot, fiery, sweet, garlicky, so full of flavour that you’ll have to resist yourself from overeating everytime you relish this Schezwan sauce.

Moreover, this Schezwan sauce is very versatile as you can use it in noodles, fried rice etc. Also, this can be treated as a dip with spring rolls, chips and momos. Not to mention, once you make it, it stays good for a whole entire month in the refrigerator.
