Life is all about experimentation and moving out of our comfort zones to discover the treasures that lie yonder! so, let not the out-of-the-ordinary blend of spices, and the resulting flavours and textures, scare you away from this dish!


While, to be frank, this dish may not appeal to all, it is a must-try for those who like to experiment beyond the traditional Chinese fried rice. The chinese five-spice powder is a flavour enhancer that gives this dish a unique tinge; you can make it in bulk and stock in the refrigerator.
