Cooking is one of my passions. I like to make nutritious and tasty foods at home.

Some Information About Szechwan Noodles

Szechwan noodles are a popular Indo-Chinese dish. Szechwan sauce is the main ingredient used in making this dish. I made this sauce yesterday. You can use this sauce for making fried rice, noodles, and many other Chinese dishes. You can also use it as a side dish for snacks, pakoras, momos, spring rolls, etc.

This recipe is a lot like my vegetable Hakka noodles recipe. The main difference is that we use Szechwan sauce instead of soy sauce for making Szechwan noodles. These noodles are hot, spicy, and aromatic due to the spicy sauce used in the recipe.

One important thing to remember while making this recipe is that you should continuously keep the fire high. To get an authentic smoky flavor, you should toss the vegetables on a high flame. This is a quick recipe and does not take much time.
