TO THE RESCUE: FRIED RICE WITH RAITA COOLER

Though my husband does not cook often but when he cooks something (and that happens once a blue moon:)...)it not only tastes great but also gets done in no time. One thing which he always wants to make is fried rice(totally HIS version). This rice dish is also a life saver as it requires ingredients which are always present in most of household and can be prepared in a jiffy. 


It comes for our rescue when we come home hungry and there is nothing to eat or when I am too tired or not-in-mood of cooking (it happens rare, once or may be twice a year). Yesterday it came to the rescue once again when I did not want to cook any non-veg and he did not want to have any veg so he was all set to make his favourite dish. 


It can be made with the left over rice. Here goes the fried rice which can be relished with raita cooler(made by me ofcourse..).
