I love Chinese Food. The Soy sauce, Vinegar, Spring Onion's and a bit of ajina-motto all do a great magic to the simple noodles or rice. When I craved for some spicy noodles, i decided to make this schezwan noodles. Though I had all other sauces in hand, schezwan sauce was missing. i googled and gathered bits and pieces from various recipe's and prepared the sauce.
