Under the street food category, this is another recipe that I love. When I make the Gobhi Manchurian, I always pair it up with this very simple fried rice. Most of the times, I miss eating it on the streets because they add egg to it. This fried rice could be made in a jiffy especially if you have some left over rice. This would be a lovely recipe to use up leftover rice. Based on your preference you could use any kind of rice you have in hand. I used the basmati rice for this recipe, but I also make it at times using brown rice.
I have used whatever vegetables I had I hand, but you could use any vegetable of your choice. Few of the vegetables that would work great (apart from the ones I have used) would be bell pepper, Brussels sprouts, green beans, baby corn, water chestnuts, bean sprouts and so one. Also adding tofu would be an excellent choice.
