Veg Stir Fried Rice

Life has been crazily busy for the past few weeks. Thanks to β€œS” factor πŸ™‚ (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).

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!
