Schezwan sauce can be made quickly and easily at home. It is originally made with schezwan pepper and garlic and it goes well with chinese as well as indian dishes. It can be used as a sauce in noodles , fried rice or also can be had as a dip.

I made this recipe with  red chilli and garlic , you can also use any type of  red chilli  available in the market according to your taste and heat tolerance.

I personally like my home-made schezwan chilli sauce it is better than the store-bought ones. This sauce remains fresh in fridge for 2 to 3 weeks.
