Schezwan fried rice is one of the popular Indo-Chinese recipes. It is very easy to make. This is not the authentic kind of Chinese fried rice. This is the Indian version of fried rice. So it is fairly hot.
Basically schezwan pepper is used to make this rice spicy. But it is not available easily. So I have used dried red chili. And of course garlic is must in indo-chinese food.
I have prepared schezwan sauce first and then made schezwan fried rice. If you have sauce ready then it can be ready in 10 minutes.
