  • 1.5 cups basmati rice (cook as instructed above)
  • 2 tablespoon peanut oil
  • 10 cloves garlic, finely minced
  • 1 inch ginger, finely minced
  • 2 cups finely chopped veggies
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper powder
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • 1 tablespoon schezwan paste
  • 1 tablespoon tomato ketchup
  • 1 teaspoon red chilli sauce
  • 2 teaspoon soya sauce
  • 1/3 cup finely chopped spring onion
  • 1 capsicum, finely chopped
  • 1 tablespoon butter, unsalted



  • Heat oil in a pan and add in the finely minced garlic and finely minced ginger. Fry for a couple of minutes. No need to fry for a long time. Just a couple of minutes is enough.
  • Add in the veggies and saute for 3-4 minutes.
  • Take a bowl and add in the salt, pepper powder, sugar and the sauces. The little sugar will balance the taste. Mix well. Add a little water if the sauce is too thick. If you want a very spicy fried rice, add a little more of the Schezwan paste. You can also add red chilli flakes if you like. Add in the sauces to the pan. Saute for a couple of minutes.
  • Add in the cooled rice. Saute for a couple of minutes more. Cold rice works best while making any kind of fried rice. Overnite rice is the best.
  • Add in the chopped spring onions. Mix well. Add in the capsicum. I like to add the capsicum at last so it stays crunchy. Add in the butter.
  • Briefly saute for a minute and switch off the flame.


There is no need to use additional salt. I have used just 1/4 teaspoon. The sauces are already very salty. So be cautious while adding salt.
