Veg fried rice is a dish of cooked rice that has been stir-fried in a wok or frying pan and mixed with sauteed veggies. Adding different kind of veggies is optional but I like to add beans, carrot and broccoli.
This will be better than restaurant style and it can be served with any curry or tomato ketchup. In addition spring onions give better taste for fried rice and as toppings. It is an Indo-Chinese recipe which is popular in most of the restaurants. It’s a simple fried rice which is less spicy and less time consuming. When ever I have left over veggies I tried to make fried rice which goes well with curry and have a tasty lunch. Adding color capsicum to the fried rice gives nice color to the rice and it also tastes awesome. Kids will love this dish and it goes well with lunch box.We should always make our dish colorful by adding different veggies which is good for our diet.You can find other Indo Chinese recipes here Veg momos, tofu manchurian, veg noodles
