Vegetable Fried Rice-Hypnotizing and tempting
Vegetable Fried Rice is a Chinese dish which has over a period of time evolved into an Indo-Chinese cuisine.
We had a family get together few days back. It was my nephew’s birthday. I prepared a lot of dishes, some of which almost took a day for me to prepare them and some which were prepared in the blink of an eye. Of all the dishes, I was surprised to see that kids loved Vegetable Fried Rice more than anything. Its aroma was truly hypnotizing and had a tempting look which left almost everyone spellbound.
In fact, I had to prepare more of it, but it was not at a problem as this dish takes less than 5-10 minutes to cook provided you have all ingredients at home and you cook it the easy way.

2).After the pan is heated, add oil, ginger, garlic and onion. Stir it for a few seconds.
3).Now, add vegetables, carrots and French beans. (If you want you can include more vegetable like peas, cabbage and capsicum…I prefer to keep it simple)
4).Then, add soy sauce, salt and black pepper.
**** (Soy sauce contains salt therefore accordingly add)
5). Now add boiled rice slowly and stir. Then add more of rice and stir.
Mix it well and if color of the rice is still white then feel free to add more of soy sauce.
*** (All the above steps should be done on high flame.)
