corn schezwan fried rice recipe

sharing a variation of schezwan fried rice. in the recipe sweet corn is added, thereby giving light sweet hints while having the spicy rice. the combination is too good. usually while making schezwan fried rice, i just add mix veggies. however, during our stay in one of the jw mariott hotels, the veg schezwan fried rice they served would have both sweet corn and green peas. surprisingly the sweet corn tasted so good with the remaining veggies in their veg schezwan fried rice. so the idea comes from there or else i would have never thought of adding sweet corn to schezwan fried rice.

in the recipe though, i have only add green bell pepper aka capsicum along with lots of sweet corn kernels. you can if you want reduce the sweet corn and add some veggies instead.

the taste of any schezwan fried rice largely depends on the taste and flavor of the schezwan sauce. so use a good quality schezwan sauce or you can also make schezwan sauce at home.

you can just serve this sweet corn schezwan fried rice without any accompaniment as it tastes good on its own. though a side chinese gravy dish like veg manchurian or gobi manchurian will also taste good.
