Mushroom Fried rice - Simple lunch recipes - Simple lunch box recipes - Simple one pot meal

Mushroom! One of a must buy vegetable whenever I do my weekly shopping. Again In SG we  get it almost entire year. Even though I always buy white button mushroom I do buy other mushroom once in a while. There are vegetable which I buy after planning the dish. But mushroom is something I plan after the fact. It is so easy to cook and match with lot of dishes. This weekend I did simple mushroom fried rice. I served with Vegetable Manchurian
