Veg-fried -rice
Vegetable Rice is a common dish in my home,which i make once a week,since my hubby likes it very much. But always make raitha for that. Very rarely i make cauliflower manchurian for this. Though we all like the manchurian, since it is deep fried we avoid making this often. After a long time i made both the vegetable rice and cauliflower manchurian. Here is the recipe of Baby Corn Manchurian .

    1. Both soy sauce and spring onions are used to add flavor to the rice. I recommend you to replace the spring onions with normal onions but soy sauce u try to add.

  25. Hello Jeyashri,
