Sichuan Prawns in Chilli Sauce


 Sichuan Prawns in Chilli Sauce



Sichuan cuisine is popular throughout China. I can understand why - aside from Cantonese, it's one among my favorite culinary areas in Chinese cuisine. this is often one among the region's most famous dishes, but watch out for versions that tend to be too sweet. Dishes are quick and straightforward and bring a healthy and delicious meal, served with stir-fried vegetables and steamed rice.
