Notes

Sichuan chillies add heat and fragrance but are not overly hot when kept whole they are not to be eaten as part of the dish unless you are crazy for chillies as they are pretty hot when eaten!. If you can only get very hot chillies (dried thai chillies for example) maybe take a few less than 10 I would go for 5.
