was surely something many would select and of course something I have
already blogged about in different versions. However the rest of the
dishes were not either possible, as there will be no takers or those I
have already blogged about.
suggested by the BM members. Common combos were removed, and I was left
with 100 plus dishes, out of which some I have already cooked. Anyway I
select this list based on random numbers and then check the recipe
name. It so happened that out of the list I picked up randomly, most
were either cooked already partially, or not feasible! Well the reason
why I am deliberating so much is that, I was struck with Fried Rice and
it gives you flexibility to be as creative as you can. I have seen my
fellow BM members using their creativity to the maximum. Can you imagine
a Flax seed coconut chutney?..Well it’s only possible for the versatile cook
we have in house. Anyway twists like above mentioned happens and their
creativity shines. I can hardly hold touch in front of them. So I settle
to safe dishes and hope I can please my family with these.
So you are hardly left out of options right. I then looked around and
saw there are so many versions with non veg ingredients. So the least I
could try is to play around with vegetables. I thought I will make this
Yellow Fried Rice. Trust me the taste does feel different with each
capsicum and the sweet corn gave a different texture as well.
had a house guest over the weekend and not knowing how much to make, I
ended up making too much. Plus I had a program on Sanskrit along with
Peddu to attend. So it wasn’t the best of time to complete a Combo Meal
and rush out. Back home in the late evening, I saw the entire batch of
rice not touched. I simply made it as Egg Fried rice, which surprisingly Chinnu also liked a lot. So next time I make the same mistake, I know how I am going to feed my kids!
