Szechuan Fried rice

Szechuan Fried rice accompanied with dry Vegetable-manchurian, we just love it. Indian - Chinese food is our favorite cuisine too. As the name refers its a rice dish, usually I do prepare this even when there is a left over rice. The one above is also done with the left over rice, thats why the grains are not that separate from each other its bit sticky. ::( . But to do it the right way is to boil the rice in water and drain the rice after 5-7 min so that you will get the perfect rice for the recipe.

Szechuan Pepper 

In India the Szechuan fried rice is usually orange-yellowish in colour basically they add food color to it. Even i have done the same thing but originally in China the Szechuan pepper refers to the spice ( sort of peppercorns and usually dark redish brown in color) which they dry roast with seasalt and make powder and use that as spice in the rice, so called Szechuan fried rice.
I am giving here the recipe for Indian Chinese Szechuan Fried Rice.

  • 2 Cups cooked rice ( should not be sticky, the grains should be separate from each other->boil the rice in water and drain the rice after 5-7 min so that you will get the perfect rice for the recipe)
