Vegetable Fried Rice
This was my most favorite choice in restaurants during school days. It was like a treat when dad gets it for me from specific restaurants. Post-school I didn’t have much craze. I had made it around twice in five years including this attempt. Last week I was craving a Chinese meal and I made this on Friday. To my surprise, it came super perfect. I was doubtful as it has been more than 5 years since I tried the fried rice recipe. So our Friday meal for vegetable fried rice with baby corn Manchurian. The below recipe has a very small quantity of soya sauce. I make Whole Wheat Veg. Noodles/Manchurian/Fried Rice once in several months and hence I feel they don’t really make any harm.

Come let’s have look at the recipe of vegetable fried rice in restaurant style.
