Bhojana's Schezwan Fried Rice


For a long time,  making Schezwan Fried Rice has been a nightmare to me. After trying out different ways, finally I arrived at an easy method. Instead of using food colour I use kashmiri chilli powder that makes Schezwan Fried Rice more attractive...





Method of doing Schezwan Sauce: 


Soak 4 or 5 red chillies in warm water for an hour, remove the seeds and grind it to a smooth paste and keep aside.




Heat the kadai and add 3 tea spoons of oil. Add 2 tea spoons of finely chopped garlic, 1 tea spoon of finely chopped ginger, 1/2 tea spoon of kashmiri chilli powder, 2 tea spoons of tomato ketchup and a tea spoon of soya sauce.


 Fry well all together for 2 minutes and finally add 1 tea spoon vinegar and switch off the stove. Now the sauce is ready.


Method of preparing Schezwan Fried Rice:

Veggies required



Wash 2 cups of basmathi rice and boil it in 8 cups of water in a broad pan. 


When the rice becomes pluffy and soft transfer it to a strainer and drain the excess water. 


Let the rice be kept aside.In a heavy bottomed wok add 2 tea spoons of butter and a table spoon of oil. 


Add some finley chopped ginger and garlic along with white pepper powder. 


Then fry vegetables like onion, carrot, capsicum, cabbage, beans and cauliflower.
