schezwan noodles recipe with step by step photos – spicy and tasty stir fried vegetable noodles with schezwan sauce.

recently when i made schezwan sauce at home, then it was obvious to make a few recipes with it. so i made the schezwan fried rice and this schezwan noodles recipe. i also served the spicy sauce as a condiment with pakoras and veg momos.

schezwan noodles is a popular indo chinese recipe and is also a popular indian street food. in fact in mumbai, there are few more schezwan recipes which are quite popular like schezwan masala dosa, vegetables in schezwan sauce, schezwan chilli potatoes, schezwan dosa and so on. i have also heard of schezwan vada, thanks to one of my readers.

schezwan noodles recipe is quite similar to veg hakka noodles recipe except the fact, that instead of soy sauce we use schezwan sauce in schezwan noodles. few more noodles recipes on the blog are:

like i have mentioned in my schezwan fried rice post, to get the smoky flavor, increase the stove top flame to the maximum and stir fry the veggies on a high heat. if the veggies start to getting burnt, then you can reduce the flame. however, if you use a good wok or pan with a heavy base, than there won’t be issues of the vegetables getting burnt. also continuous stirring while frying, ensures that the vegetables are browned evenly.

schezwan noodles can be served just like that without any accompaniments. a hot bowl of spicy noodles for the monsoons…. finally raining here and we are relieved 🙂

prepping the noodles:
  1. boil 5 cups of water in a pot or pan with some salt and a few drops of oil.
  2. add the noodles in the hot boiling water.
  3. cook the noodles according to the package instructions.
  4. when the noodles are just about cooked, meaning al dente, then strain the noodles in a colander.
  5. rinse the noodles in running water very well. this method stops the cooking process and removes the starch.
  6. add oil to noodles. toss the noodles gently, so that the oil gets coated evenly on the noodles. this method gets rid of stickiness from the noodles.

  4. add the remaining veggies - finely chopped carrots, capsicum (green bell pepper), mushrooms. keep on stir frying the veggies on the high flame.
  5. stir fry for about 7 to 8 minutes till the edges of the veggies start to slightly brown. you can cut down on the stir frying time, if you prefer half cooked or more crunchy veggies.
  6. now reduce the flame to medium heat and add schezwan sauce, salt and black pepper.
  7. add the hakka noodles in batches and stir fry.
