  6. Mix the sugar, soy sauce, rice vinegar and 3 teaspoons cornflour in a bowl to from a paste.

  7. Heat the reserved peanut oil in a wok, stir in the Szechwan peppercorns and cook until fragrant.

  8. Turn heat to low, stir in dried chilli and cook until they begin to darken.

  9. Stir in the garlic and onion and cook for a few seconds.

  10. Add diced chicken mixture; turn to high heat and stir for a few minutes.

  11. Stir in the other tablespoon cooking wine and chilli powder until the oil turns red.

  12. Stir in the cornflour paste and cook until the sauce is thickened.
