Ingredients for Mixed Fried Rice :

2 cups cooked rice
2 Eggs
4 sticks chicken sausage (boiled and sliced one)
2 tbsp olive oil
1 chopped Capsicum
3 chopped big Green chillies (Mirchi bajji chillies)
2 chopped carrots
1 & 1/2 tsp Coriander powder
Salt: as per taste

To prepare Mixed Fried Rice :

1. Boil the rice with a little salt and 1 tsp oil, till each grain is separate and almost cooked. Be careful not to overcook the rice. Drain excess water and allow it to cool completely. I cooked rice on the previous day and refrigerated it overnight. This really helps in making a good fried rice which is not sticky.
2. Heat 2 tbsp of oil in a pan and add onions, green chillies and saute until translucent.
3. Add all the vegetables, chicken sausage, coriander powder and stir fry for around 3-5 minutes and move to one corner. In the empty place add eggs and cook till they became scrambled.
4. Know mix everything together add salt and saute for few more minutes. For this add the cooked rice and mix gently. You can sprinkle 1/2 tsp pepper powder at the end.
5.The Fried Rice is ready to be served hot.

Tips / Notes:

·        Feel free to add any vegetables of your choice like Beans, Mushrooms, Baby Corns and so on.
·        U can fallow the same procedure to make Vegetable Fried Rice by omitting eggs and chicken sausages.
·        U can fallow the same procedure to make Egg Fried Rice by omitting chicken sausage.

Health Benefits :

1. Most vegetables are naturally low in fat and calories. None have cholesterol. (Sauces or seasonings may add fat, calories, or cholesterol.)
2. Vegetables are important sources of many nutrients, including potassium, dietary fiber, folate (folic acid), vitamin A, and vitamin C.
3. Chickens are low in fat and calories and high in protein, which makes it ideal for weight maintenance. Not to mention that this bird is jam-packed full of essential nutrients and vitamins.
4. Eating more eggs is a fantastic way to give yourself a health boost. Eating whole eggs is vital: the goodness of eggs is found in the yolk (containing over 90 percent of an egg’s calcium and iron) and the white (containing almost half the egg’s protein).
