My precious two kept me busy for quite these years, its Feb 2014 and I realized my blog needed some serious uplift, So here I am back to blogging. I use my iPhone for clickin & uploadin the pictures in my blog.I know its needs improvement. Let's just say, I'm just happy the way they are for now & when I do find time, I might improve on it. I also own an Etsy store, where I sell my handmade Soap bars, Cupcake soaps, Body butter, Body scrub, Lip balms & more... I plan on adding a few more Categories to my blog like Kiddie food, Travel, Soap making, Crafts etc..

  3. Heat a Kadai or Wok ,Add some Oil ,When warm Add Onion, Carrots, Peanuts,Raisins and fruits and stir them ..(be Cautious not to Burn the Raisins)

  4. Now add the Cooled rice.. and now add Fish Sauce..

  5. Just Random Stirring just to make sure that the vegetables, fruits and rice are mixed well..Also make sure not to break the rice grains.. The entire process till here shud not take more than 2 mins..Else everything will be overcooked...

  6. Now add the chilli garlic sauce...

  7. Now sprinkle the Ajenomoto..

  8. Now add the pepper powder and coarsely ground red whole chilli..

  9. Crack the eggs and pour it in a bowl and add 1 spoon soy sauce and 1 spoon oil and mix well..with a fork.

  10. Heat a wide mouthed pan/ Wok and pour oil..

  11. Now add the egg and Soy sauce mixture to the wok.. and keep scrambling them to avoid them sticking together..The more the oil..the more tastier..
    Don't overcook the eggs..Transfer the contents to the fried rice ..mix well and serve....

  12. Garnish with Spring Onions..
