Mushroom Schezwan is an Indo-Chinese recipe. Whenever we say 'Schezwan' the word comes in our mind is  'Spicy'. Yes, scheawan sauce itself is very spicy and so the schezwan dishes. Mushroom Schezwan is an easy and quick dish that you can serve with any Chinese main course such as fried rice or noodles. If you have some time in your hand, you can prepare a home base schezwan sauce and use the same for the dish. For the schezwan sauce, soak some kashmiri red chili (deseeded) in hot water for half an hour. Now in a mixer grinder pot take some garlic cloves, salt, sugar, vinegar and soaked red chillies. Make a smooth paste. Heat sesame oil and add this paste into it. Mix well and allow it to cool. Schezwan sauce is ready to use in recipe or you can store it for future use.
