Here I was, craving for something spicy this lazy chilly Friday evening. That’s when I made this fabulously flavourful spicy rice . Perfect meal to use up some leftovers!! Feel free to add in chicken, Prawns, veggies, or any other proteins you like as well. This meal comes together very quickly once you start cooking, so make sure that your ingredients are prepped and ready before you turn on the heat!
Step 1 : Heat Oil in a pan and fry garlic until golden brown. Add in chopped Spring Onions and fry for 2 mins. [ Reserve green portion of Spring Onions for garnish ]
Step 2 : Add tri Colored squarely chopped BellPeppers and fry . Do not fry for too long as it tastes best when crunchy! Some other veggies which go well with this would be thinly sliced beans and cabbage. Note that these would take longer to cook 🙂
Step 3 : At this stage, lower the flame and add 3-4 Tbsp of Schezwan sauce. This sauce can be made at home too.However, I used store bought Ching’s Secret Schezwan Sauce . Mix and cook on low flame for just a few mins. Can pour a teeny weeny drizzle of Soya sauce as well ( Again, optional )
Step 4 : Break open eggs onto a separate heated pan smeared with oil , sprinkle some seasoning (Optional) 😉 I have added some Oregano, Salt and Pepper powder. Scramble and add along with the Bellpeppers.
Step 5: To this, add cooked Rice + Salt and mix carefully. **USE COLD RICE **
Lastly, Garnish with some spring Onions aaaaaand you are good to gooo!
This spicy rice can turn out to be addictive!! There is just soo much flavour going around here…. Gotto taste this a couple of times to adjust the flavour!! Perfect for chilly winter evenings.
Oh yeah!! Did I mention, this took me just 15 mins to make?! It’s gonna be ready in no time!! Enjoy!
Until next post,
Stay Happy, Eat Healthy!!
