Schezwan Chutney || How to prepare Schezwan chutney at home

Schezwan  Chutney || Indo- Chinese Schezwan chutney with step by step pics and tips, it is very spicy and tasty recipe. We all love schezwan sauce and chutney a lot, it is very easy to prepare at home with easily available ingredients. We use schezwan chutney in many recipes like noodles, fries and to prepare many rice items. We always confuse the difference between schezwan chutney and schezwan sauce. The main difference is in its texture, taste and some ingredients. Use less spicy variety like byadigi variety red chilli, if you use Guntur red chilli chutney tastes very spicy that we cannot eat. If you like chutney very spicy use 3/4 : 1/2 of byadigi : guntur red chillies.  Do check many chutney  recipes in my blog & youtube   channel surely you will like it.
