Schezwan Fried Rice

Schezwan fried rice is a popular variety of fried rice from the Indo-Chinese cuisine made using schezwan sauce. The spicy flavor of the sauce mixed with the crunchiness of the vegetables makes it delicious.

Ingredients (Serves 4)

Preparation time – 30 mins
Cooking time – 15 mins
  • Basmati Rice – 1 ¼ cups
  • Schezwan sauce – 3 tbsp
  • Carrot – 2 finely chopped
  • Beans – 8 to 10 finely chopped
  • Green Bell pepper – 1 finely chopped
  • Red Bell pepper – 1/2 finely chopped
  • Yellow Bell pepper – 1/2 finely chopped
  • Spring onion – 3 to 4 stems finely chopped
  • Garlic – 3 big cloves finely chopped
  • Celery – 3 tbsp chopped
  • Salt – as needed
  • Olive Oil – 2 tbsp


  • Heat oil in a pan and add garlic, spring onions and give a stir.
  • Add the veggies and salt and cook in high flame for 6 to 8 minutes until the veggies are cooked but crunchy.
  • Add the schezwan chilli paste and give a stir.
  • Add the cooked rice and toss and well.
  • Garnish with Spring onions.

Key Points

  • You can use store bought Schezwan sauce as well.
  • When cooking veggies, I usually add beans first as it takes more time to cook.
  • Toss carefully not to break the rice.

We had the Schezwan fried rice with Honey chilli potatoes and it was just a perfect combination.
