Vegetable Fried Rice (Indo Chinese Style ) / How to Prepare Vegetables for Fried Rice (Step by Step) – Lunch Box Ideas / Leftover Rice Recipes

Fried rice is my favorite dish to order in any restaurants..I love having fried rice with gobi manchurian or gobi 65..Chicken is also my favorite combo with fried rice..I can have it with chicken manchurian, dragon chicken, chilli chicken or any chinese style recipes..

Near our place there is a small portable café where they serve fried rice, it was so good..They use a huge wok to cook this fried rice..If we order a plate of chicken fried rice, They throw ginger & garlic in hot oil and add lots of shredded cabbage..I have never seen them using carrots or onions, Then they add cooked rice from the pile of rice the have near by..And throw in fried chicken 65 pieces and season it with salt, pepper, ajinomoto and soy sauce..Finally they add tons and tons of spring onions…They pile this up in a disposable plate and give to us, this one is less than 30 rs and the taste was heavenly..OK now I crave for this..

This one is totally different from the one which I had...This recipe has lots of vegetables which are beautifully sliced and prepared and throwed together.They look and taste so good…I have given step by step pictures to prepare those veggies..This is a great recipe to put in lunch box or even to use up leftover rice..Fried rice is best had piping hot…So have it as soon as possible..

Hope  you like it and let me know what you think..I am sending this recipe to BM Day 2 under the theme Seven Days of Rice…
