Vegetable Fried Rice and Chilly Chicken

                                                                     Eid Mubarak

We celebrated Eid at our Uncle’s place this time. So I didn’t prepare anything special.This time it was ghee rice, Mutton curry, raita and sevaiyaan, all made by aunt :-). The day went on very well with eid prayers, wishing everyone, having a wonderful lunch and so on.

Today’s post is about a vegetable fried rice and chilly chicken which I made a few days ago, and is a perfect combination which can be made on any occasion or even without one :-). This one I made during iftar time. The crispness of vegetables along with the juicy chicken makes this a perfect chinese dish which can be had along with fried rice.
