We are starting the third week, with a post on homemade Schezwan Sauce. The theme I chose this week is all about recreating Readily available products at home. So you have all those sauces, products that are ready to eat etc.
For Day 1, its Schezwan Sauce to make Schezwan Fried Rice. We mostly end up buying these sauces, however when you make it at home, its healthy and so much so better in terms of taste as well.

Garlic, chopped - 1/4 cup
Ginger - 1 tsp
