You can add chopped shallots about 4-5 along with garlic and sauté them until they turn translucent.

If Sichuan Peppers are available then you can crush them and add it when making the sauce.

I have used Kashmiri Chillies for the bright color, it is totally optional.

I have deseeded the Dry red chillies, if you want the Schezwan sauce to be spicy, deseeding can be avoided.

I have used dark soya sauce, you can replace it with light soya sauce.
