Broccoli Fried Rice


Fried rice along with manchurian is perhaps one of the most popular Indo-Chinese recipes ordered in restaurants. Making a restaurant style fried at home is quite easy and healthier too. The key to a good fried rice is perfectly cooked rice with separate grains, the right amount of sauces and spices and the right heat to give a smoky flavor. If you have your veggies chopped and rice cooked, fried rice can be prepared in 10-15 minutes. Check out my Chinese style veg fried rice recipe.

Today's recipe is a variation of the regular veg fried with broccoli as the star. Broccoli, as you all know, has numerous health benefits and fried rice being the favorite of many is one way to incorporate it in our diet. Here I have added other vegetables too to make it look colorful and healthy, but you can make it with just broccoli and it tastes equally good. Serve with any manchurian or a simple tomato sauce or ketchup.
