fried rice and chicken munchurian

You know what nutritionists say, they say that in the bowl or plate that you eat you should have at least 5 colors, to make the food apeal to the eye....fried rice is one of those foods, instantly apealing to the eyes!

Fried rice coupled with chicken munchurian is an ideal indo chinese food, though I miss the chinese restaurant I used to go , when I was in hyderabad..and especially the Basket noodles, I plan to make it someday,alas one day will come when I will try out that recipe, but seriously I love the crispy noodles, .nearly 8-9 mnths back when I was pregnant, I had cravings for chinese chopsouey,every now and then I used to bug my husband to take me to all the chinese restaurants, one day we were grocery shopping in Carrefour, my husband found a frozen chopsouey vegetables, he`also took the noodles, next day it was my day off in the kitchen, my husband cooked the chopsouey, but so much that I had to eat that the following night,next day for lunch and then for dinner, now nomore I crave for that:-D.
