Fried Rice!!

Onmyplate today is “Fried Rice” which is one of my favorites and therefore, wanted to share with you all 🙂

“Fried Rice” is prepared from the leftover rice either cooked for dinner or lunch which generally no one wants to consume and therefore goes for a waste…..

Giving a new name and re-cooking makes it fresh and delicious in taste too!!

Here goes the recipe which would help you not to waste the leftover rice 🙂


  • Cooked rice 2 cups
  • Onion 1 large chopped
  • Tomato 1 medium chopped
  • Fresh Green Chili 1-2 chopped
  • Haldi (Turmeric) 1/4 tsp
  • Ajwain (carom) seeds 1/2 tsp
  • Zeera (cumin) seeds 1/4 tsp
  • Cinnamon 2 half inch
  • Lemon juice 1 1/2 tbsp
  • Salt 1/2 tsp or according to taste
  • Oil 3 tbsp


  • Heat oil in a fry pan and add ajwain, zeera and let it crackle
  • Now add cinnamon and fresh green chili and let it crackle too
  • Add the chopped onions and fry in low flame till golden in color

  • Once the tomatoes are soft add rice and mix well
  • Fry the rice in high heat till it starts crackling (almost 6-7 minutes)
  • Keep stirring so that it doesn’t burn
