a good recipe and very economical. My daughter loves fried rice which is a good one dish meal, especially for lunch. May I suggest using a clove of minced garlic as well as chopped onion for extra flavor and vitamins. I usually form a small crater in the middle of the pan and scramble an egg inside before I finish stir frying the rest of the dish. It will add a touch of protein and color and make it suitable for breakfast too!
