Chinese Fried Rice

There are days, when you feel very low. Lot of things, happen around you, which you do not approve but sometimes you do not have options. And have to go through the flow of life... Well, it was a real bad day for me. And I didn't feel like cooking.. So, thought of making something real quick.

It itself is a complete meal. And goes perfectly in Lunch Box.

So, here presenting you Chinese Fried Rice.. When I was in Anaheim, we went for our daughter's Belle Dance Class. While coming back, it got late, and we decided to go to the nearest restaurant. And we landed, to this Chinese restaurant. It was very clean, and decor was very beautiful. Ordered Fried Rice, as it was my Kiddo's Choice... But, I am glad I did. It was too yummy. I tried recreating same fried rice. It took me about 4 attempts, to get to the same taste...

Here, presenting you the same fried rice, which you can make ready in 10-15 minutes.
