I doubled the dressing as it was quite dry. Easy to make but nothing special.

Really tasty, however I would use way less than 300 grams of rice.

Hi there, thanks for your question. Yes, sweet chilli sauce will work well in this recipe. Caster or white granualted sugar would both work well, however as you're using sweet chilli sauce instead of the hot chilli sauce you could even leave it out. Enjoy! Thanks again, BBC Good Food team
