Vegetable fried rice recipe

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 .

  3. Hey jeyashree,

    Would you consider moving to the US? My next door house may be vacant soon. I am getting tired of just looking at the awesome posts/pictures you post and salivating over it on an empty stomach. It is about time I started tasting your stuff, don't you think?

    Just kidding. 🙂 Great post once again.

    • 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.

  4. Hello Jeyashri,

    Thanks for posting the recipes. Could you specify which brand of soya sauce to use. In Singapore most of Soy sauce are rather too salty, I found.

  5. Lovely recipe. Tried it today and it tasted excellent. Thank you so much. But my fried rice was red in colour. Could it be because of the tomato sauce ? I didn’t have to add any tomato sauce or chilli sauce while eating. So I presume I had added more quantity and hence the colour.
