    ✔️ If you want to make it purely vegetarian, just omit the chicken. You can add beans, peas etc.
    ✔️ Paneer can also be added.
    ✔️ While preparing the Schezwan sauce, try to remove the seeds from the dried red chillies. At least from few of them. Remove and then soak in water.
    ✔️ We had it with sweet and spicy chicken fry and it turned out to be a heavenly combination. As the rice by itself is so flavorful, you wouldn’t need any gravy so this fry was perfect.
