Vegetarian Fried Rice With Spices


This is a good recipe on a meatless day. It’s my own version of vegetarian fried rice with spices. With so many fresh spices around in Malaysia, it’s definitely an advantage in cooking a vegetarian meal. For example, the ginger bud and Kaffir lime leaves that I used in this fried rice could easily be found in the wet market. The spices are not only infused the rice with pleasant fragrance, but it also make the food more presentable.  Anyone said vegetarian meal is bland? This will proof you wrong.

Yeah! Vegetarian meal is seldom bland for me cos of the use of herbs and spices. Just so good! But it is not easy to find ginger bud and Kaffir lime leaves here. :(
