Veg Schezwan Fried Rice/Sichuan Fried Rice

Schezwan fried rice is a hot,spicy and irresistible Indo-Chinese recipe, which uses Schezwan sauce. dry red chillies and garlic as the main ingredients. Usually it is to be served as a main course in Chinese meal. I have tasted this in my office cafeteria. Schezwan fried rice with Veg Manchurian is my favorite combo. When I made this for the first time VJ liked it too. Try this out and you will get to know why this addicts you :-)


Basmati Rice - 1 cup
Schezwan Sauce - 2 tbsp
Mixed vegetables (carrots, beans, cabbage, broccoli cooked peas, capsicum etc) - 1/2 cup apprx
Salt and Pepper - as per taste
Sugar - a pinch
Oil - 2 tbsp

To Grind

Dry Red chillies - 4 or 5
Garlic pods - 5

  1. Soak the basmati rice in water for 20-30 minutes and then wash 7-8 times thoroughly to remove the surface starch and drain the water completely. Add 2 cups of water and pressure cook for 3 whistles. When the pressure releases fluff it up with a fork gently without breaking the grains and set aside.  
  2. Grind the dry red chillies and garlic pods without adding water and keep aside.
  3. Chop the carrots, beans, capsicum and cabbage finely along with the spring onion whites. Reserve the green part of the spring onion for garnishing finally
  4. Heat oil in a pan, add the spring onion whites and saute for few seconds. Then add the vegetables one by one and saute for few more minutes. Do not over cook the veggies, let them retain their crunchiness.
  5. Add the schezwan sauce and the red chilli+garlic mixture and sugar and cook in a low flame for few minutes. Make sure the raw smell goes off, else your rice will not taste good.
  6. Mix in the rice and add salt and pepper. Finally garnish with the green part of the spring onion. Yummy Veg Schezwan Fried Rice is ready to be digged in!!
