We usually serve stir fried rice with scrambled eggs Or eggs into it. So I thought of making Stir Fried Rice on a Bed of Omelet on a bed of thin omelet instead of adding eggs to it. Also I have added chopped almonds to give a nutty and crunchy flavor to the rice. We had Stir Fried Rice with Mushroom Chili Fry. All vegetarian dish except the omelet !
My hubby loves Stir Fried Rice with omelet. So he was quite content with the meal and had all of it. There are lot of variations in stir fried rice. Some make with prawns, some with tofu, some with chicken some with fish and some like me with veggies!
Whatever veggies are left in your fridge. You can club them all and make one dish like Stir Fried Rice, baked veggies, pilaf, biryani, curries etc. The dish becomes flavorful because of various ingredients and vegetables plus it gives a nice boost to nutritive value to your recipe. So don’t discard your leftovers unless it’s spoiled.
Waiting for rains so the weather changes so does the cooking pattern. In rains lot of fritters, hot dishes, soups, spicy food, non veg food and desserts tastes absolutely great. Just waiting for rains to pour in.
