Spicy Schezwan Fried Rice

by - 3:08 AM

Sigh...Pic of this recipe always stayed in Queue side bar of mine but never made it to post. I know....I thought of doing it today. I am not Rice and dal person. Though sometimes I would prefer to eat simple dal but wouldn't prefer carrying it in my lunch box. While I explore during a horrendous night shift day for easy to prepare one pot meal options, I found this super easy yet spicy Schezwan rice which can be prepared with minimal ingredients and load it with veggies. Please excuse my pictures. I took them almost an year back. So you do not see them in high resolution and they will be updated in the next collection

Wash and cook basmati rice with salt, olive oil and water of 1 and 1.5 cups. Once your rice is cooked, fork it to get separate grains and keep it aside. Heat olive oil in a heavy bottomed vessel and fry ginger and garlic pieces until raw smell subsides. Change your flame to high and then add your vegetables. Toss them on high flame for 2-3 minutes. Add Schezwan sauce, salt and pepper powder and combine all the ingredients well. Finally add rice and mix all the ingredients. Adjust salt if required and add a pinch of sugar.
Toss it on high flame for 30 seconds and transfer the contents into a serving bowl. Serve hot.

My Notes-
I shredded carrots,capsicum,cabbage and chopped beans finely.
I did make Schezwan sauce sometime and found that it was too watery, so I used Ching's Schezwan sauce. I will surely try it sometime during this month to see if my plan B works. Last time when I used that little semi solid sauce, my rice was like a sticky mass. I din't realize that when I made sauce.

This recipe is going to participate in my friend SJ's Independent India Event.
