A quick recipe with some veggies and protein sounds like a good plan for the weekend, right? A bit of preparation and it’s done, Happy Weekend!
I had some leftover uncooked tiny-miny chicken pieces. And, also some cooked leftover rice from the lunch.
What would you make with leftover cooked rice? To me, I only think of Indo-Chinese dishes with leftover rice. Decided to make chicken fried rice with lots of garlic and chillies.
The only time-taking thing in cooking Indo-Chinese dishes is, to chop the vegetables very finely. Thank goodness I have this amazing vegetable chopper from Pigeon which comes handy for my Indo-Chinese dishes preparation. It’s available on Amazon and Flipkart as well.
While it might not be the authentic Indo-Chinese fried rice from the streets but is definitely a good recipe to try out.
