What do you do with left-over rice? Toss it away; gulp it down, what is your way? One of our most favourite ways is to throw it in a pan and mix it up with a host of veggies and spices. Spicy fried rice is one Indo-Chinese dish we will always be grateful for. Not only does it add a zing of flavour to our meal but it also complements the tempting gravy dish served alongside. Fried rice is perhaps one of the simplest and quickest dishes you can prepare at home. And guess what; it has a mammoth fan-base too! From kids to grown-ups, fried rice is a rage among everyone.
India is the largest producer of rice; we love rice to an extent that we can have it for starters, main course and desserts. The ubiquitous presence of fried rice in our restaurants and eat-out vans is proof that we are not getting over the Indo-Chinese preparation anytime soon. While you can always pick up your phone and order fried rice at home, but there is something about home-made fried rice that is unbeaten. Not only can you be sure of the quality of ingredients used, but you can also customise the ingredients as per your liking. Don’t like beans, do not add it to your fried rice; love bell peppers? Add as much you want.
