Veg Fried Rice

Fried rice is a common “Chinese” dish in the Indian subcontinent. I think the main reason veg fried rice was discovered because people needed a good way to use up the leftover vegetables. It is a simple recipe that brings a slight change to the same old rice that is a staple food for most Bengalis. You have different types of fried rice now: non-veg, veg, schezwan. There are so many things that you can do with just rice. Come enjoy the pleasures of cooking with me.
