About Schezwan Sauce
Couple weeks back i wanted to try out Schezwan recipes because i found that yummy tummy lacked some Schezwan foods. The main ingredient for schezwan cooking is the sauce.
You could use store bought sauce but why would you use that bottled stuff when you can make it from scratch. So i made my fiery sauce. Now you know that some yummy schezwan foods are on the way.
Ingredients for Schezwan Sauce
Dry Red Chillies -30
Garlic - 20 cloves crushed
Ginger - 4 tblspn grated
Tomato ketchup - 3 tblspn
Soya Sauce - 1 tblspn
Salt to taste
Black Pepper Powder - 1 tsp (if you have schezwan pepper use them)
Sugar - 2 tsp
Oil - ¼ cup
How to Make Schezwan Sauce
Take dry chillies and cut the top open. Remove the seeds out of it. You can just invert it and roll between your hands, the seeds just fall off. Now take the chillies and add it to a sauce pan. Add 1 cup of water and bring it to boil. Simmer it for 5 mins. By this time the chillies must have plumped up. Drain chillies. Reserve the water, you need that for grinding.
Take the chillies in a blender add the reserved water slowly and make them into a paste. Set aside till use.
Now heat oil in a sauce pan. Add in garlic and ginger. Fry it for couple of mins. Now add in the chilli paste and mix well. Now add in ketchup, soya sauce, salt, sugar and pepper. Mix well. Simmer this sauce for 5 to 8 mins.
Now the sauce is done. Cool this and store in a clean air tight container refrigerated.
