Achari vegetable fried rice - Simple one pot meal

One pot meal really great time saver. Also perfect for lazy days or for a party. It is a must during weekends for me. Mixed vegetable base rice is my favourite for it's nutritional value. It is also good way to finish up the left over vegetable.. Do u agree?. This rice has taste of pickle because the spices used for gravy is similar to pickle
