SZECHUAN FRIED RICE


If you enjoy Chinese food, you have definitely eaten Chinese fried rice. There are so many recipes out there with different ingredients. This simple dish is very  popular in many parts of the world. It can be cooked according to your taste and availability of items from your pantry.

For non spicy version,  you can reduce the chili paste used. Have added cauliflower and peas but carrot, french bean, capsicum  or mushroom are best alternative. You could  add  more vegetables or may be throw in some chicken or prawn if you want.  Even without those it is so tasty,  fulfilling  and a great meal on the go..

3 T cooking oil

1 tsp ginger minced
2  T  chili paste
1/2  tsp ground pepper
