Triple Schezwan Fried Rice

Triple Schezwan Fried Rice

Indo Chinese cuisine or Desi Chinese is one of the most distinguished culinary styles which combines aspects of both Indian and Chinese foods and flavours. I believe also the most popular ones. Triple Schezwan Fried Rice is one of our favourites and the best Indo Chinese dishes ever made. It is a complete meal with a combination of fried rice, Hakka noodles and fried noodles and served with spicy schezwan gravy. This Indo – Chinese delicacy is absolutely lip-smacking. If Desi Chinese isn’t your thing – this dish will convert you for sure. It is a party in the mouth with varied textures and the gravy is succulent.

The dish itself doesn’t take time to cook, but there are various components to it and the preparation takes much longer than cooking.
