Schezuan Fried rice

Serves 4

1-1/2 tbs Schezuan sauce (you can get it from the stores ready-made or make it at home by mixing red chili paste, vinegar,garlic, tomato sauce, sugar and salt- the one from the store is really spicy so use sparingly as per your spice level)
4 tbs chopped spring onion
1-1/2 cup diced vegetables (carrots, red and green bell pepper, baby corn, cabbage or any other of your choice)
salt to taste

1. Heat oil on a very high flame in a wok. Add some ginger (optional) and some spring onions -saute for 2minutes and add the vegetables. Saute for 2-3 minutes, add salt and 1/2 a tablespoon of the schezuan sauce.
2. Next add the rice, add salt and rest of the sauce, mix well and serve hot garnished with some spring onions
