This is our favourite rice..When my husband was in US for a short period , he used to have this rice for lunch in which the quantity of vegetables was more than rice.. After he came from there , he told me to make fried rice adding more vegetables than rice.I started making the same way and it made the rice more healthy.I used to add ajinomotto but after knowing its ill effects i stopped using it..But It din’t make any difference in taste and flavour.The only part i feel lazy/difficult is to chop the vegetables finely Winking smile.Otherwise its an easy to make dish.. It will come out very flavourful too.. Make sure u add all these vegetables to get the exact taste of fried rice.. Smile
