What's the biggest difference in authentic Chinese food and Indo-Chinese food? You guessed it right - it's the spice level. Indians have to have lots and lots of spice in their food, because it's just how we like it. No more justification given. So, if we make fried rice at home, it has to be spicy. But, if you are one of those, who like an extra dose of spice in everything you eat, this recipe is for you. This burnt chilli garlic fried rice will suit your palate like no other. Want to know more about it? Read on.
