Added to 31 cookbooks   This recipe has been viewed 24385 times

Schezuan or sichuan essentially means spice, being derived from sichuan pepper, a condiment known for his spice quotient. This is probably the reason why the indian palate takes on so well to spicy schezuan food. Stir-fried vegetables are delightful to taste when cooked in this style. Fresh mixed vegetables cooked together with schezuan sauce and red chilies make this a perfect accompaniment to plain noodles or simple steamed rice. You can use a combination of vegetables and adjust the sauce if you don’t want it too hot. Enjoy the super taste!
