SCHEZWAN SAUCE RECIPE | HOW TO MAKE SCHEZWAN SAUCE

Nornally i make vegetable fried rice for kids lunch box  and pack with plain raitha or some store bought chips. But my daughter always insist me to make Gobi Manchurian or Vegetable manchurian to accompany the Vegetable Fried rice. . But for me it is very difficult to make the elaborate manchurian on a weekday mornings. When we tasted Schezwan  fried rice few weeks back in a restaurant we all liked it and i have noted down in my to do list to make this recipe. Yes , now a days i am little organised and planning my menu ahead and kept a list of items to be blogged this year and planning accordingly. Coming to the recipe, i first wanted to post the recipe of home made schezwan sauce and i adapted the recipe from a cook book of Sanjeev Kapoor.
