Indian Style Fried Rice recipe - Vegetable fried rice recipe - One pot Meal recipes - Lunch recipes - Party food recipes - Rice recipes

My helper had made this rice for our lunch. It tasted like fried rice but with some difference. I was pretty sure it had ghee but not just that.. So I asked her what else is there but before even she asked I found out the taste yeah it is tomaotes. Adding tomatoes and ghee / butter a gave wonderful flavour to regular vegetable fried rice. I have posted Fried rice with sambar powder. Small variation in the ingredients do give a very different flavour to the dish . Our family loved it.
