Veg Schezwan Fried Rice (rice Fried With Schezwan Sauce Indochinese Style)

Another Indochinese recipe which I absolutely love. If you have Schezwan sauce handy, then this recipe is easzy peezy. The best part about fried rice is the kind of variations you can create. It can be a total Indian fried rice with masalas or an Indo Chinese version like this.

The word Schezwan is actually derived from work "Sichuan" a province in China. Rather, Schezwan is the romanized term for Sichuan. Sichuan cuisine is known to be super spicy and when I say super spicy I mean one spoonful of sichuan sauce can make you sweat and get a runny nose.

Well the Schezwan sauce we make in India is sure spicy but has a very uniqu taste. You will first need to prepare the Schezwan sauce before making this fried rice. You can find the recipe here:
