Speeding things up!
I have always preferred rice over rotis, and always tend to make a little extra just so I have leftovers for the next day. I like it when I take a peek into my fridge and find a box of leftover plain rice. It drives my imagination wild, since there is so much you can create out of plain boiled rice. I have tried so many rice dishes over time but fried rice has always been a favoutite. There is so much you can do to alter the taste and so many ways you can use to make a big bowl of fried rice. I often use whatever veggies or meats i have at hand, throw in a variety of flavours, and I have a great wholesome meal ready to be served. This is another easy breezy recipe that hardly takes anytime at all and can be put together in minutes. I can't even remember how many times I've cooked this up at the end of a long tiring day. And it never fails to please me! Vegetable Fried Rice Ingredients: 2 cups cooked plain rice 1 cup mixed vegetables (carrots, peas, beans, celery, cabbage...go wild! Frozen vegetables would also be a great option) 1 medium onion, chopped 1 tbsp soya sauce 1 chicken buillion cube (even a vegetable buillion cube can be used) 1 tsp ginger-garlic paste 1/4 tsp red chili powder 1/4 tsp crushed black pepper salt, to taste 2 tbsp cooking oil chopped spring onion for garnish Method: Heat oil in a non-stick pan and fry onions till transparent. Add vegetables, bullion cube, salt, pepper and chili powder and fry till all the water from the vegetables evaporate. Add rice and mix well. Splash soya sauce and stir-fry rice till everything is mixed well. Garnish with spring onions and serve warm. A great side to spicy Pepper Chicken!
