Schezwan fried rice is a traditional Indo-Chinese dish. The dish is made of rice with different sauces and spices along with vegetables on top. It’s delicious and easy to make. You can also make plain fried rice to eat with gravy or saucy fried rice to eat without gravy. In this blog, I’ll show you how to make Schezwan fried rice in three easy steps. In my previous blog, I also shared a tasty and simple Schezwan chicken gravy recipe that goes well with schezwan fried rice.


For fried rice

~ 2 tbsp oil

~ 1/2 medium cup mix vegetable

~ Spring onion

~1 tbsp soya sauce

~ Salt ( according to taste)

~1/2 tbsp black pepper

~ 2 tbsp schezwan sauce

~ Chicken ( optional)

~ Egg (optional)

For rice

~ 3 small cup rice 

~ 6 cup water ( 5.6 liters)

~ 2 tbsp oil

~ half tbsp salt


Step 1 of 3: Making gravy

~ In a saucepan add oil and veggies and cook for 1 minute. Then add soya sauce, salt, blackpepper, and schezwan sauce and cook it for 2 minutes

~ After 2 minutes add the boiled rice (Step 2) and mix everything properly

Step 2 of 3: Boiling the rice

~ In a pan add 6 cups of water, 2 tbsp of oil and ½ tbsp of salt. Once the water boils add 3 small cups of rice in it.

~ Let it boil and once it’s boiled turn off the gas and strain the rice.

Step 3 of 4 : Garnishing

~ After you have added rice in veggies, add coriander for garnishing and then take it out in a serving bowl.

Note: Cook the rice after you’ve finished adding the sauce and vegetables. Because pre-boiling the rice makes it soggy.
