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 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 🙂

  1. I added stir fried chicken and garlic salt instead of salt and voila…..super hit !!! Thank you.

    • welcome sabina

  2. I made schezwan noodles but the colour was different (very slightly orange) than yours. I also added 1 teaspoon extra but it didn’t helped me.

    • nikhil, the color largely depends on the variety and type of red chilies used. some red chilies like kashmiri red chilies or byadagi red chilies give a nice deep reddish or reddish orange color. as long as the taste is good, color should not make much of a difference if making for family or friends.
