Sambar fried rice - Simple one pot meal - Lunch box recipe - Brown Curry Fried rice - Healthy rice recipes

My plan was to do some vegetable biryani however after I got up my laziness set in so I was not in a mood for any elaborate cooking. I saw this recipe in VahChef. It is so simple and very close to Chinese Vegetarian fried rice but with with Indian Twist. Also with simple Curry powder. I have used homemade sambar powder but you can use the curry powder. Do try it. I have used cooked brown rice but you can use your favourite rice
