NOTES:
Cooking the rice in open pot method helps us to get cooked grainy.
Sauté everything in high heat to get smokey flavor.
You can steam cook the vegetables and then can add.
Using olive oil/ gingelly oil gives nice flavor to the rice.
I have used little sugar, though my schezwan sauce already having sugar in it. So add as per your taste.
I didn’t add vinegar and soy sauce , because my schezwan sacue already having these too. If you add just red chilli paste instead instead of schezwan sauce, add vinegar and soy sauce too in the rice while sauting.
