Something really special about this Vegetable Fried Rice is the Indo-Chinese influence in this recipe. It is extremely easy as I record and they taste delicious on its own and out of the world when paired with a Saucy Gobi Manchurian or a Schezwan Gravy. We are back from our much awaited Disney Holidays last week and this rice has been absolutely blissful that can be stirred up in a jiffy.
It has been going on for at least 6 months – either the planning stage or buying the tickets or when the moment arrived, right through the trip. We are still rejoicing every bit from vacation.
Wow ! Disneyland is the most magical place on Earth ! From the time you enter, your eyes would yearn to look the beautiful castle every time, whether you pass through the FantasyLand, AdventureLand, FrontierLand and DiscoveryLand. The kiddos lived their dream world, eagerly waiting to spot the Princesses or their favourite Disney character. The word Tiredness/ Jet lag or footloose was never in any child’s dictionary as most of the kids sparked with wholesome energy everywhere. That vibe was infectious !! The child in me was eager to see Minnie Mouse and give a tightly wrapped hug to Mickey Mouse 🙂
It’s time to feel the magic as the Disney Characters walk through the streets, parading !! And the illumination fireworks on the Disney Castle at night is much more than magic. We are still dreaming about the fireworks !
Ooh, and did I mention about the Walt Disney Studios ? Be it the Motor Show, Ratatouille or Disney Junior Stage Show – we were just bowled over.. Sitting in the large arena witnessing how the real movie shooting stunts happen was just too good. The stunt cars/ bikes moving in the reverse direction are carefully interchanged , even before you realise and they also do have an engine fixed in the reverse direction 😉
I can go on and on and am sure you would see my ramble about my trip further in my upcoming posts too. Let me cut it short here for the time being and come back to reality – Post trip recovery!! That’s the hardest part in my opinion and cooking a full-fledged meal is something I would never want to do. I wish we had an awesome takeaway in the vicinity, that I could just pick my phone and ring for a comforting Biryani with Raitha or some Chinese Fried Rice with some Manchurian or Some GreenThai curry with steaming Rice.
For days like these, when everything else takes a little more attention and all that you want to do are order a Pizza Delivery or a Takeaway, I have teamed up with Veetee to create a speedy fakeaway recipe. Veetee is available to buy at all the major super grocers across the UK, offering a variety of products from Cook from Scratch Rice to Heat & Eat. Their Rozanna Basmati has been a part of our regular meal for years but their newly introduced Heat & Eat rice packs are just the life savers !!! It can be if you have an uninvited guest popping in for a meal or when you are totally drained out of energy.
Though they are microwaveable packs, you can stir fry them tooo!! How versatile
I’ve got a recipe for a super speedy, nutritious Indo Chinese Vegetable Fried Rice for when I want a takeaway but decide to fake it instead. This Asian inspired fried rice can be prepared in less than 30 minutes and they pair really well with a deliciously protein rich Soybean Manchurian.
Being regular Rice eaters there was a little worry if the critics in the family would approve the rice out of packets. That was absolutely not necessary as they all wowed looking how flavoursome the rice tasted.
