Life has been crazily busy for the past few weeks. Thanks to “S” factor 🙂 (smiles)

Ahem!!! it has been nearly a month since I posted a recipe. I had no time to even log into my blog.I am feeling too guilty for it and today I made up my mind that come what may I am gonna post my dish. Trust me, it is so very difficult to get back to routine. Even though I do have time to cook and post, I am totally getting lazy from doing things what I have been doing all these days. I started my blog with a jet speed posts of about 18 recipes in Sep and then I havent been posting anything at all . :-(((((( (too bad huh). My apologies to Uma, Sreesha, Usha and Shama for not acknowledging them immediately for sending me those lovely awards. Sorry!

Now the food I cooked few days back was VEG STIR FRIED RICE. It has been raining heavily in Chennai and the weather was extremely pleasant. That made me wear my cooking hat after a long time and I was all set to cook some Chinese delicacy. I was thinking about Chinese fried rice the whole day at work and my taste buds had began to crave for it since that afternoon. I purchased bell peppers, tofu,mushrooms, spring onions on my way back home. I made my way straight to the kitchen to cook them and the table was set for dinner by 7 pm that day he he!

Here is the recipe for it.
  • 1 yellow pepper
  • 1 red pepper
  • 1 packet tofu – cubed
  • 1 carrot – cubed
  • 1/2 cup shredded cabbage
  • 1/2 cup spring onions – chopped
  • 1 tbs soya sauce
  • 3 cups left over refridgerated rice
  • 1-2 tbs sesame oil
  • 1 cup mushroom finely chopped
  • 2 tsp finely chopped garlic
  • 2 tsp finely chopped ginger
  • 1 tsp sugar
  • salt to taste

Add oil in a wok. Once they get heated up, add the peppers and cook them for 3-5 min. Remove and keep aside.
Repeat the same for carrots, cabbage and mushrooms. Cook them all separetly and keep aside.
Shallow fry the tofu cubes and keep aside.
To the remaining oil in tha wok, add the garlic, ginger. Stir for a min. Now add spring onions and cook for a min. Add sugar and let it caramelize. Now add the stir fried vegetables, mushrooms and soya sauce. Saute for a min. Add the cold rice and keep mixing them. Bring them down to room temperature. Mix in the tofu and salt.
