Fried Rice

Got some time to post the Fried rice recipe which I'd tried over the weekend. At the moment I've restrictive access to the Kitchen as my MIL does most of the cooking. She'll be getting a companion soon, (my mum) to deny me any access to the Kitchen till October.

This is a simple fried rice, which I cook quite often.

Ingredients: -
1 cup boiled Rice (Spread the rice on a plate & allow it to cool down completely)
1 medium sized green capsicum, finely chopped
1 medium sized carrot, finely chopped
1 medium sized onion, chopped into strips
1/2 cup sprouts
1/4 cup green peas
2 tbsp soy sauce
2 tbsp tomato-chili sauce
A bunch of 3-4 Scallions / Spring Onions (green leafy part & the onion part separated & finely chopped.)

Method: -
1. In a wok, heat 2 tbsp of oil & add onions. Saute till they start to sweat.
2. Then add all the other veggies & cook till they get fried evenly.
3. In a cup mix soy & tomato-chili sauce. Add little water & then drop it into the wok.
4. Mix well so that the sauce coats the veggies well.
5. Now add rice along with enough salt & fry for 3-5 minutes. If the oil has become less, add 1tbsp again.
6. Garnish with green leafy part of the spring onion & serve hot.

I made the red tomato Rose. This is my first try at vegetable carving. It was quite easy. I selected a round red tomato that was not too ripe. Then with the help of a knife, I started to peel the skin in a continuous strip. The strip was not even though. But it was OK. Then I carefully wound the strip to get the shape of a rose.
