Mixed Vegetables Schezwan Fried Rice

As mentioned in my previous post, its been quiet cold for the past few days here in Scotland. Cold Winter days only meant one thing in India - Hot & Spicy Chinese Food. The Soups, Snacks, Rice & Curries. With the winters in Scotland being much colder, we really miss the Indian Chinese fare.


I made this Schezwan Sauce a few days ago and used it to make the Schezwan Fried Rice. This is the closest we could get to Indian Chinese here. Though not similar to the ones we get in India, we were happy with this.

This is also a very good way to use up any left over rice.


Serves: 2 - 3

Ingredients
2 cups Cooked Rice - preferably cooked the previous day and refrigerated
2 cups Chopped Mixed Vegetables
1 tsp Chopped Ginger
1 tsp Chopped Garlic
1 Onion - Chopped
5 Spring Onions - Chopped - Green and White parts
1 tsp Soy Sauce
2 tbsp Schezwan Sauce
2 tbsp Sesame Oil / Vegetable Oil
Salt to Taste

Method
  1. Heat a wok. When its hot, add the Oil.
  2. Now add the Chopped Ginger and Chopped Garlic and stir for 30 seconds taking care the Garlic doesn't burn.
  3. Add the Onions and fry for a minute.
  4. Now add the Vegetables and stir for 2 - 3 minutes.
  5. Add the Soy Sauce, Schezwan Sauce and Salt and saute for another 2 minutes. Add a bit of water if its getting too dry.
  6. Now add the Spring Onions and give it a quick mix.
  7. Add the rice and keep mixing till the rice is quoted with the sauce and it mixes with the Vegetables.
  8. Garnish with some Spring Onions and serve hot.
