Mix Vegetable Fried Rice
This is an easy one pot dish. Mix vegetable fried rice is a great option if you have lots of leftover rice in refrigerator. This makes a quick recipe. Well it has nutrition of vegetables. You can actually add any vegetable or leafy vegetable to the dish. You can use freshly cooked rice also. If you are calorie conscious then take brown rice instead of white basmati. This is not cooked in pressure cooker or rice cooker. I am using left over rice for the dish. This is a time saver.
Even if you are planning what to keep for kid's tiffin box, this would be great idea. And will be prepared in minutes. And to shorten the preparation time chop the veggies and keep in refrigerator box from night. In morning only prepare tampering and cook veggies and mix with spices and rice. Tiffin box is ready in 15 minutes. You can pressure cook them also but that will not give that crunch which you will get by frying in open pan.
I have taken green beans, green peas, carrots, potatoes, green onions. You may add few more veggies like broccoli, cauliflower, bell peppers, mushrooms, paneer or tofu to your rice. Simple yet tasty dish. I just loved it. You will love this too.
