About this Recipe
Schezwan sauce is an Indo-Chinese condiment made from red chilies, garlic, soy sauce, vinegar, and Sichuan peppers. This sauce, also known as schezwan chutney, gets its name from the use of Sichuan peppers in its preparation.
Dry red chilies, garlic, shallots, and spices are combined to create a spicy and pungent sauce. Dishes with this name, in fact, bear little resemblance to those from Chinas Sichuan Province, despite the fact that they occasionally contain Sichuan peppercorns.
Ingredients for Schezwan Vegetable Cheese Dosa Recipe :
Schezwan Sauce :
Szechuan sauce tastes like combining sweet-and-sour chicken from a classic suburban American Chinese restaurant with soy sauce and perhaps a hint of sesame. Its goopy, sweet, and very salty, and its a pretty tasty option on its own.
Because of their higher sugar content, red capsicums are the sweetest and highest in vitamin C and beta carotene. Orange and yellow capsicums contain nearly as much sugar as red capsicums, whereas green capsicums have a low sugar content due to early picking, which gives them a slightly bitter taste.
Fresh ginger has a slightly peppery and sweet flavour, as well as a pungent and spicy aroma. Fresh ginger, like garlic, softens with cooking. Its a common flavouring in Asian dishes. Salad dressings, baked goods, soups, curries, meats, and desserts like
gingerbread and gingersnaps are all flavoured with ground ginger.
Dry Red Chilli :
Dry red chilli is a condiment that enhances the flavour and colour of food. It contains medicinal and homoeopathic properties. We provide red chillies that are uniform in shape and size. It is mostly used to season foods. The chillies have a strong flavour.
