Schezwan Fried Rice Recipe/Schezwan Fried Rice with Homemade Schezwan Sauce/Schezwan Fried Rice Recipe Video in English & Tamil

 Schezwan Fried Rice is a very famous and popular Indo Chinese dish served in restaurants. Fresh cooked white rice or left over white rice is added to the stir fried vegetables along with strong and pungent Schezwan Sauce. Schezwan food is known for its prominent flavours and high spice level coming from Sichuan pepper and Chilli peppers. I have used the home made Schezwan Sauce but you can use the store bought ones also. Do try out this Schezwan Fried Rice and post your comments here.
