Veg Fried Rice

Veg Fried Rice:


Veg Fried Rice is a very popular and tasty North Indian dish. My Son loves Veg fried rice very much and whenever we go out to restaurant, this is one sure dish we order. So, I wanted to  give it a try at home & it turned out real awesome..:)

This dish is actually a lot simpler than most of  us perceive it to be. Thanks to my friend Padma for this healthy and easy recipe. 

Its main ingredients are rice and vegetables like carrot, beans, cabbage and capsicum, which are protein rich. 


Enjoy this recipe for Vegetable Fried Rice…:)
