SCHEZWAN FRIED RICE WITH HOMEMADE SCHEZWAN SAUCE




For the schezwan sauce
            Ingredients

2.      Ginger-1”inch piece
3.      Garlic-10small pods

For the fried rice

2.     Carrot-1no,cut into small cubes
3.     Beans-10nos,cut into thin round pieces
4.     Capsicum-1no,deseeded and cut into small cubes
5.     schezwan sauce-3tsp (with the above qty you will get around 4 tsp.Since we don’t like much spicy version I added only 3 tsp. For the better color and flavor all the prepared sauce can be added)
6.     Pepper powder-1/2tsp
7.     Oil-2tbsp
8.     Salt.
Method of preparation
1.     Heat oil in a pan. Add all the vegetables and salt. Sauté for 2minuts.It should not be overcooked. Once it changes its color add the Schewan sauce. Stir for a minute. Add the cooked rice mix gently. Lastly add some pepper powder. Give a nice stir. Switch off the flame. Keep it closed for some time. Serve with some chicken curry or it can be enjoyed merely with some sauceJ

 Notes: Rice can be made more flavorful by adding a tbsp of chopped spring onion and celery. If you like to have restaurant style deep red color rice use kashmiri chilly or a little red food color.

  8. I never knew how to make Szechuan sauce. Maybe because the sauce is easily available and spoilt for choice on the different types of brands. I should make some and store in the fridge for other dishes as well. I will be good for a quick stir fry with vegetables.

    Also, I like this vegetarian version because sometimes we are tired of eating meat. Since we eat lots of rice and fried rice is also the same, will keep this interesting recipe for handy days.
