How to make Schezwan Fried Rice
Heat a wok or pan and then add oil once it is hot enough. Then add chopped garlic and ginger and saute for few minutes.
Now add chopped cabbage, a carrot, french beans, capsicum and half of the spring onions and fry on a high flame for 2-3 minutes without burning the veggies.
Then add schezwan sauce, soya sauce and white vinegar and combine well.
Add the pre-cooked rice and mix well without breaking the grains.

Variations of making fried rice
Since it is vegetarian, I have added only mixed veggies but you can add beaten eggs or shredded chicken pieces to the rice.
To make the best Schezwan rice, use a wok if you have one.
Once it is cooled completely, store the fried rice in an airtight container and keep it in the fridge - this stays good for 2-3 days.
Reheat thoroughly before serving.
Always use completely cooled rice or day-old prepared rice because the excess moisture in newly cooked rice causes the grains to cluster together. However, if you don't have any pre-cooked rice on hand, prepare the rice from scratch and spread it out on a tray or platter to dry for a couple of hours.
Cook the vegetables and rice on high heat at all times. This is the most important thing to remember while stir-frying anything whether it's vegetables or rice. Note that the high heat keeps the vegetables crisp and fresh.
As everything needs to be cooked on high heat, make sure you have all you need in advance including vegetables, rice, sauces and seasoning.
Adjust the sauces according to your taste.
