The Word Schezwan is derived from the name of a province in China that is very famous for its gastronomy. The sauce comes from the Indo-Chinese cuisine that originated in Kolkata. This fusion cuisine is a creation of the Chinese community that had immigrated to India and combines the classic Chinese methods of cooking with the Indian spices, and herbs and often includes veggies.The schezwan sauce is made of special schezwan peppers which are actually dried berries of a tree. It has a unique aftertaste. Its’ neither supremely hot nor extremely tangy. To make its sauce, a variety of chillies are blended. If schezwan pepper  is available, then it's great. Otherwise any combination of red chillies can be used, depending on the desired taste and colour. The chillies need to be soaked in hot water first and then blended. The blended mixture is tempered with garlic ginger and chopped green celery fried in sesame oil.  Celery and Garlic are skippable. The vinegar is added at the blending stage to increase the shelf life of this sauce. This sauce is a great ingredient in all Chinese food.
