Mixed Veg Fried Rice

Mixed Veg Fried Rice

This mixed veg rice is so easy to prepare and is a One Dish Meal,can be served with any raitha.The chinese prefer to make this kind of fried rice with leftover rice preserved in the refrigerator,as the rice kernels are well seperated and non-sticky…The best way is cook rice and cool well before ¬†starting this dish.This is my choice of veggies and sauces..you can do with what you have at hand and try…The only thing is you need to chop veggies finely where you need a culinary skill..!!
