My love for spicy foods have taken over my cooking too. Couple weeks back i was in a spicy mood, so decided to try out some schezwan cuisine. And i am telling you, this has become one of my favorite foods in the world.
At first i made my homemade schezwan sauce. And then made couple of dishes from the sauce. I tried a schezwan fried rice and a schezwan chicken. Both of them turned out to be absolutely delicious. It was love at first bite. YUMMY..
These days you can easily find readymade schezwan sauce at stores, but when you can whip up a yummy flavourful sauce on your own, then why would you go for those stuffs. I strongly recommend you to try out the sauce at home and then make your dishes. Because the sauce is what matters. Hope you like this and let me know how it turned out for you..
