How to make Schezwan Fried Rice

Starting with Cooking up of Rice

1. Rinse 2 cups of basmati rice or long-grained rice whatever is suitable you feel, until the water runs clear all the starch present in the rice. Then soak up the rice in water covering the rice grains up to 1 to 2 inches for 30 to 35 minutes. Then drain all the water and set it aside.

2. Bring 4 cups water, half teaspoon salt, and a Quarter teaspoon oil to a gentle boil. Use any of the neutral-tasting oil.

3. Now add the drained soaked rice.

4. Simmer on low-medium heat, until the rice grains are just cooked or till the rice should have a slight bite to them.

5. Strain the rice grains in a mesh strainer. Then rinse them again with water, while gently moving the rice particles with your fingers. Drain it completely.

This method will stop the further cooking of rice grains and removes any excess starch that remained in them.

Cover it up and set it aside at room temperature in order to let the rice grains cool down completely another option to refrigerate while you prep up the veggies and other ingredients.

Remember to cut the french beans in a fine manner as they take excess time to cook as compared to other veggies.

You can also have the option to blanch the green beans first and then stir-fry it up. Another solid option is to add the beans first while stir-frying it and later on adding the other vegetables.

7. Heat 3 tablespoons oil in a pan AKA wok. Add a Half teaspoon of finely chopped garlic and sauté it up for few seconds.

You can also use toasted sesame oil or any neutral-tasting oil like sunflower oil for stir-frying.

Serving Suggestions

Schezwan fried rice can be well served alongside any other saucy, spicy foods. 


Expert Tips

  • Great Smoky Flavor: The mantra to any great stir-fried dish is its smoky flavor that gets achieved by using the right stir-fry tactic. And this can be achieved through continuous stirring up of ingredients as the dish is cooked over a very high amount of heat.
  • Our endpoint goal is to achieve a light brown sear over the rice and over the veggies too but to keep them in motion so much that they don’t get actually burned. Preferably the best to use a carbon steel wok as they retain heat.
  • Prepping up: Make sure to have all of your sauces and seasonings prepared well in advance before getting onto the stir-fry process. You will need to work pro-actively and cautiously and keep your eye constantly over to the wok or the pan if we say while you stir fry, so having everything chopped and mixed get ready to use it and it's incredibly helpful.
  • Schezwan Spicy Sauce: Be ready with tasty homemade schezwan spicy sauce in advance and have it ready to use in your Chinese Schezwan Fried Rice Recipe. If you do not have a sauce prepared then there's no need to worry as you can use a store brought one.
  • Leftovers: Refrigerated cooled leftover of schezwan fried rice can be stored in a sealed container, for up to 1.5 days. Reheat in a microwave or a small saucepot over at the top of the stove. You might feel to add a teaspoon or some water while reheating to get the rice a bit fluffy feature again.
