veg schezwan fried rice recipe

Schezwan fried rice can be served with recipes like veg manchurian, veg balls in hot garlic, mushroom manchurian, paneer manchurian or any sauce based dish. it also tastes good on its own. i served schezwan fried rice with kale & mushrooms in ginger sauce.


  1. lets start step by step schezwan fried rice recipe:
  2. rinse the basmati rice, till the water runs clear of the starch. then soak the rice in water for 30 mins. drain and
  3. keep aside.
  4. bring water, salt and a few drops of oil to a gentle boil.
  5. add the drained soaked rice.
  6. simmer on a low flame, till the rice grains are just cooked.
  7. strain the rice in a colander. rinse the rice with water so that the rice grains stop cooking. gently with your
  8. hands, move the cooked rice grains, while rinsing them with water. drain completely. cover and keep aside.
  9. chop all the vegetables finely. remember to chop the french beans very finely. they take more time to cook than other veggies. you can also blanch them first and then cook. another option is to add the beans first and then
  10. add the other vegetables.
  11. heat oil in a pan. add the chopped garlic and saute for about 15 to 20 seconds.
  12. now increase the flame to its highest, add all the vegetables including the spring onions and celery.
  13. keep on stirring the veggies, till they start getting browned from the edges. it took me about 9 minutes for the vegetables to cook.
  14. now add the schezwan sauce.
  15. stir well.
  16. add the rice in parts and keep on stirring. stir gently as you don’t want the rice grains to break.
  17. season with salt, pepper and vinegar.
  18. mix and stir fry for 2 to 3 minutes tossing the rice so that the sauce coats each and every rice grain well. check the taste and add more salt, pepper and schezwan sauce if required.
  19. garnish with spring onion greens and serve the schezwan fried rice hot with any indo chinese sauce like mushroom manchurian or paneer manchurian or baby corn manchurian or cauliflower manchurian.
