The summer holidays have come to an end ,sadly so !!! The begining of a new school year and the day begins with a request for lunch…haha…why am I surprised !?! ‘Fried rice pleeease’ was repeated too many times for me to not ignore 😉 ! Fried rice ,thankfully is quite easy to put together. It’s not something that I make often for lunch as we usually stick to regular South Indian fare but I didn’t think anyone would mind if I deviated slightly on this one occassion.
I did have carrots and corn,that’s a nice combo and thankfully a fresh bunch of bright green spring onions…yum ! I decided to skip the onions and beans…simply because I was not in the mood to chop them ! It happens sometimes. Soy sauce and vinegar are always available in my storage cabinet,just for such emergencies !!!
The recipe is so simple that the mixture comes together quickly,in the pan. If you are faster than me in cutting and chopping,this dish will be done in no time at all !
One of my favourite moments is mixing and watching the ingredients transform into the finished dish.It’s at this point that most of the love flows and happy thoughts surface as you visualize the face of the people that you make it for…it’s a special private moment !
All done and now is the time to take a minute to admire the many colours that bring life to the grains of white rice. I love the flecks of green here and there,of the spring onions.
I’ll share with you a little secret.Into one lunch box, I have to add a few drops of spicy Tabasco sauce…otherwise I have to be prepared to meet a droopy face in the evening ! So,if you feel you need to add some spice,that’s another option.
I hope you like this simple fried rice,it can be altered in many ways and that way will taste different every time !Enjoy !
