What to do with the leftover rice?

You will be surprised with what all you can do with the left over rice from night. I made the vegetable fried rice. The most easy and tasty recipe. 

It takes 10 minutes to cook.


  • left over rice- 4 medium sized bowls.
  • Vegetable oil/ canola oil 2 tbsp
  • onion- 1 medium- thinly sliced
  • peas- 1 cup
  • cauliflower- 2 cups florets cut small. 
  • Salt to taste
  • Green chilli optional 1-2 
  • Shivani's garam masala 1 tsp
  • Cumin seeds- 1/2 tsp
  • Ginger grated 1/2 tsp

Let us make it-

  • Heat the oil in a pot.
  • Once warm, add the cumin seeds. Once cumin seeds splutter add ginger and slit chillies (with seeds in). 
  • Now add sliced onions. Saute it for 3-5 minutes.
  • Add cauliflower and saute again for 2 mins. 
  • Add salt to taste, cover it with lid, lower the flame. 
  • After 10 mins add peas to it. Saute it for 2 mins.
  • Add the left over rice. 
  • Add Shivani's garam masala. Stir it nicely. 
  • Cover with lid for 2-3 mins. 
  • Garnish with cilantro if you like and serve it hot!!
