Another fried rice in the series. Unlike the most known bland version of Chinese fried rice available in most of the restaurants, this schezuan fried rice is fairly hot. This dish is a delectable blend of spicy flavors that are sure to tease your palate.
The main ingredient 'schezuan sauce' I prefer to cook it freshly as homemade sauce has amazing flavors and it increase the taste of this fried rice tremendously.
You may however use ready made sauce if you like.
