Veg Schezwan Fried Rice Recipe

Vegetarian Schezwan Fried Rice is one of the quick Indo-Chinese Cuisine. A Chinese Meal without Schezwan Fried Rice is just incomplete. My husband likes Schezwan Fried rice a lot and ready to eat even if i will cook it on daily basis. Usually it is to be served as a main course in Chinese meal. We are going to show you all the images to make it more easy and more quick.

Schezwan Fried Rice tastes very good with finely chopped vegetables but if you are don’t have much time then then you can also use some shredded vegetables. I don’t recommend using chopper to shred your vegetables, because chopper makes vegetables moist and they don’t taste that good.  I recommend chopping all the ingredients with chef knife.

To make schezwan rice, we also need Schezwan Sauce. If you don’t have schezwan sauce available and don’t have time to make it, then you can also use ready made schezwan sauce or schezwan chutney from your favorite brand. It makes Chinese cooking very fast and effort less. If you want to know, how to make awesome Schezwan Sauce at home then do read my Original Schezwan Sauce Recipe.

Before making Schezwan Fried Rice, just prepare everything and keep near to your work space, so it will be easy to put the ingredients one after another with quick stir frying. It is always better to use a pan or wok with handles as you have to frequently stir and toss.

Schezwan Fried Rice can be served with other Indo Chinese Recipes, such as Veg Manchurian, Chilli Paneer, etc, or any sauce based dish. Do check our more Indo Chinese Recipes, such as Schezwan Noodles, Schezwan Mushroom Dry, Hakka Noodles and Chinese Spring Rolls.
