Schezwan noodles is one such spicy, flavorful and red colored noodles prepared with veggies, Szechwan sauce and noodles. Veg Schezwan noodles is super popular among all the noodles variety due to its color, spiciness and garlic flavors and with same ingredients fried rice can also be prepared easily at home. This noodles recipe is just an enhancement to the regular hakka noodles.

For this recipe, schezwan sauce can be easily prepared at home with everyday ingredients or for convenience can be store bought as well. I made ambur chicken biryani last week and had some unused chili paste so thought to make schezwan sauce for the blog as I never got chance to picture it. So with the same sauce I made fried rice too which I will post in the coming weeks. So I used byadgi chili while making the paste for biryani and in the picture you will notice regular dry chili used as I mentioned it is leftover chili paste. This byadgi chili is not very spicy and at the same time yields excellent red color. You guys can try using it if it is in your reach or you can try using regular dry red chili that is at home.
