Szechuan Fired rice is an easy to make spicy fried rice item. Best alternative for the normal fried rice. A real easy to make spicy rice for the spice lovers. You can make this rice plain by adding sauces and spring onion too. I have added veggies to make it more healthy. Non vegetarians could add pieces of chicken or scrambles egg too in this rice. I make vegetable, Egg and Chicken fried rice version with Szechuan sauce. I am making this rice with home made Szechuan sauce.

Easy to make in a jiffy so it suits lunch boxes. Could be served with Chilli Fish, Chilli Broccoli, Mushroom Manchurian, Baby corn Manchurian, Broccoli Manchurian, Seasame Honey Chilli Chicken recipes.
