Vegetable Fried Rice is not only a unique idea of mixing up all the leftover veggies but also turning them down into something tasty and yummy. For me it is one pot meal. Easy to make and yummy to taste is the bottom line of this recipe. It takes very less time to prepare when all the ingredients are easily available at home. Most of the times this simple recipe comes as a resuce on sudden get-togthers. I often make this on Sunday's when Iam not in a mood to stand long and long in kitchen. Simple vegetables when mixed with garam masala, rice and ginger-garlic paste gives an appetizing and flavourful taste. Make it taste more rich by serving with Aloo Khorma and Dahi Ki Chutney. So what are you waiting for come indulge with me :-)
