I just opened my fridge and noticed some leftover rice and veggies and I am gonna use this to prepare vegetable fried rice. It is bad to waste food anytime of the year but given the current condition with this covid19 pandemic, it is nothing less than preposterous now! The whole country is under lock down & we are going out, only when absolutely necessary. I went out from my house (just a few meters away) around 5 days back, that too for milk and veggies. Last time, I used only Schezwan fried rice masala in my recipe and it turned out to be very spicy for my family, so I decided to adjust the spices, give it my own twist and this time it’s exactly the way I wanted it to be, nice, little spicy and full of flavour.
