BM #83 Week 3 Day 1 -

Schezwan Fried rice is an Indian Chinese street food which has gained popularity over the years. The sauce itself is very spicy, flavorful and aromatic. 

I came to know that in recent years there has been an increase in these Indian chinese Street food joints in many metropolitan areas of India. They serve steaming hot soups to appetizers to main course dishes like this Fried rice.

So when I read up on the ingredients and consulted my older one if she would love to try the new flavors, she was all in. Now it has become one of her favorite dishes for her lunch box. 

She also tells me that on the days she takes this rice to school, there is a line of her friends waiting to take a spoonful of it and her lunch box is empty in no time :).

Ingredients - 

Sona Masuri Rice 1 1/2 cup (Any short grained rice will do)
Vegetable Oil 1 Tbsp
Cabbage, finely chopped 1/2 cup
Carrot, finely chopped 1/2 cup
Green Beans, finely chopped 1/2 cup
Colored Peppers, finely chopped 1/4 cup
Tofu, cubed and sauteed 1 cup
Salt as needed
Schezwan Sauce 2 Tbsp (adjust as needed)
Spring Onions greens for garnish

Method Of Preparation -

Cook the rice and spread it on a wide tray to let it cool. 

In a heated wok, add oil and stir fry the vegetables for a few minutes just until they are cooked but still retain the crunch.

Add in the sauteed tofu. Sprinkle salt and Schezwan sauce.

Reduce the heat and gently add the cooked rice. Mix well and remove from heat. Sprinkle the spring onion greens and mix well.
