Veg Schezwan Fried Rice

Craving for something spicy, then schezwan fried rice is a good and quite a bit quick option. Have some chopped/shredded veggie(manually or using food processor) and rice(leftover or 90% cooked) and schezwan sauce ready with you.

Key trick to make perfect fired rice is stir frying at very high heat and keeping everything ready before starting to cook.

Time: 30 minutes


1.5 cups Basmati rice or long grained rice
2.5 cups Vegetables(finally chopped) of your choice
         ( 1 carrot, 8 french beans, ¼ cup cabbage
           1 capsicum/green bell pepper)
2 Spring onions/scallions(finely chopped)
2-3 Garlic(finely chopped)
2 tbsp Schezwan sauce (I used ching's secret)
1/2 tsp Black pepper(crushed/powder)
1/2 tsp Rice vinegar or regular vinegar
2 tbsp Oil
Salt as required


1. R
inse the basmati rice well.  Boil about 5-6 cup water and 1/2 tsp of salt to boil. 

2. Add rice to boiling water. Simmer on a low flame until rice is 90% cooked.

3. Strain rice in a colander and run cold water over it so that the rice grains stop cooking. Drain completely. cover and keep aside.

4. Chop all the vegetables finely be extra careful with the french beans as they take more time to cook.

5. Heat oil in a deep pan or wok. Add the chopped garlic and saute for about 15 to 20 seconds.

6. Increase the flame to its highest, add spring onions and all chopped vegetables. 

7. Keep on stirring the veggies, till they start getting browned from the edges. Don't be in a rush to add rice it wont taste good till it gets nice brown color.

8. Add the schezwan sauce, rice. Stir gently and season with salt, pepper and vinegar.

9. Stir fry for 3 to 4 minutes. Check the taste and if required add more salt, pepper and schezwan sauce.

10. Garnish with finely chopped spring onion greens.

11. Serve the schezwan fried rice hot with any soup, any Indo-Chinese curry dish.

1. Cook rice about 90% cooked check in between.
2. For making schezwan fried noodle just replace rice with any kind of noodles even vermicelli tastes good.
