I am a big fan of Chinese cuisines and Schezwan Vegetable Fried Rice is one of them. I should rather rephrase it as “Indianized Chinese Cuisines”, because I am sure that most of the Chinese recipes that we find here are in fact an indianized version of the Chinese ones. There are very few restaurants that serve authentic Chinese cuisines.

I still remember the days when me and my husband would go out to have dinner, order Chinese food and definitely include veg Manchurian in it. And I would pick all the Manchurian balls from my husband’s bowl. I simply liked the usage of the different sauce in it.

Talking about sauce, the thing that I like the most about the recipe that we will be talking about today, is also the sauce used in it. And it is this sauce that this recipe gets its name from. There is nothing much required other than this sauce, for this recipe. You could take freshly cooked rice or, even use leftover rice. If you prefer buying the Schezwan sauce from your nearest store, you could do that. I prefer making the sauce at home though because that retains the flavor of the sauce and also ensures that it is healthy.

With that let’s get straight onto today’s recipe – Schezwan rice.
