Schezwan Noodles

Yes, You guessed it right. I am on a Schewan spree these days. Even since I learnt to make the sauce at home ( will post recipe very soon ), I have been trying out with every possible permutation and combination. So over the last 2-3 weeks, we have had schezwan chicken, schezwan rice, schezwan noodles, schezwan paneer and even a schezwan dosa. Seems like I cannot get oven this yummy flavor at least till I finish the last batch of sauce that I had prepared. Till then, please bear with my latest obsession.

Read on for the recipe:

Preparation Time - 30 mins

Ingredients - 225 gm noodles, 3 cups of mixed vegetables (carrot, bell pepper, onions, french beans),  2-3 tsp schezwan sauce, 1 tsp tomato sauce, 1/2 tsp vinegar, 1/3 light soy sauce, 4 tsp oil, salt to taste, spring onions for final garnish, 10-12 fried/boiled chicken pieces (optional), 1 scrambled egg (optional).

Preparation - Finely chop all the veggies and combine them.

Dilute the schezwan sauce with 2-3 tsp water and add a little salt.
Keep aside.

Bring water to boil in a large saucepan. Add noodle to it and cook till it is done yet a bit firm. (About 3-4 mins)

Drain off the water and transfer noodles to a plate. Add 1 tsp oil and lightly toss with hands to coat evenly.

Cooking - Heat oil in a wide wok. Add all the veggies and saute on high for 2-3 minutes so that they do not lose their crispiness. ( Add the chicken and scrambled egg at this stage )

Add the schezwan sauce, tomato sauce and vinegar; and fry for 1 minute.

Add the noodles, sprinkle salt and fry for another 2-3 minutes. Do not stir too much or the noodles might break. Switch off flame and add the spring onions.

Serve hot.

Note - If preparing a chicken noodles recipe, cut down the quantity of veggies to about 1 cup and double/treble the chicken quantity.
