Schezwan/Sichuan Potatoes

In the recent few months in our household the Schezwan sauce recipes has been regular hit ! I had demands for super hot Chilli Mogo ( Fried Cassava chips in schezwan sauce ), Schezwan Paneer Wrap and Schezwan Noodles and Rice, it could be a weather factor ! The particular tastes that schezwan delivers seems to leave a desirable taste in our mouths, therefore I am compelled to try out newer dishes with zingy sauce.

An absolutely terrific and irresistible dish for any spicy lover foodie, bursting with flavours plus all the different texture of the potatoes and crunchy vegetables

You will need :-
  • 500 g small salad or baby potatoes ( use only those potatoes which holds their shape after boil )
  • 400 g Chinese stir-fry packet or vegetables like cabbage, carrot, green beans, Capsicum, red onion, ( choice is yours )
  • 5 tbsp. sesame or any oil
  • 3 tbsp. semolina
  • 2 tbsp.. finely chopped garlic and ginger
  • 4-5 tbsp. spring onion
  • 5-6 tbsp. schezwan sauce ( or per your taste )
  • 4 tbsp.  Chilli and sultana sauce ( can be used thai sweet chilli sauce )
  • 1 tbsp. soy sauce
  • 1 tsp. freshly ground black pepper
  • Salt to taste ( use less as all the sauces contains salt )
Method :-
Wash potatoes and boil them in salted water till just done. They should hold their shape. ( if potatoes are big cut into half )
Pre heat oven to gas mark 7-8.
Transfer them into another bowl and peel the skin.
In a baking tray place potatoes, 3 tbsp. oil and semolina.
Coat the potatoes evenly with oil and semolina.
Roast the potatoes for 30-35 minutes till light golden. ( this step will give potato a crunch )
( You can roast potatoes in the non stick pan on the stove on a low heat. )
Now add 2 tbsp. oil in a pan and add ginger and garlic.
sauté for minute and add stir fry mix, keep heat high.
Add all the sauces and cook vegetables for not more than 3-4 minutes.
Now add roasted potatoes, salt and black pepper powder.
Mix very gently, and cook the potatoes one minute more.
Check the seasoning, if needed add extra sauce ( I don't think you'll need to ).
Turn the heat off.
Garnish with chopped spring onion.
Serve hot on it's own or with rice noodles.
