Fried rice

Fried rice is a classic nigerian dish which is  very appetizing and highly nutritious because of the numerous colored vegetables contained in it. It could also be garnished with vegetable salad. 

Ingredients
*Whole fish (seasoned and fried or grilled)
*Chicken stock
*3 cups Rice
*1 bulb, Onions
*2 tbsp Curry
*1/2 tsp Thyme
*2 Seasoning cubes
*Vegetables: finely chopped or diced-Carrots, runner beans, green peas,chilli pepper, green pepper, spring onions, onions, sweet corn
*3 tbsp Vegetable Oil
*Lettuce&lemons for garnishing
*Salt to taste

Directions
-Wash the rice with very hot water
-With the stock, cook the rice with the seasoning cubes, onions, curry&tyme(this gives it the distinct yellow colour) and salt till it is almost soft
-In an empty pot, add the vegetable oil and stir fry the finely chopped or diced-Carrot, runner beans, green peas,chilli pepper, green pepper, onions,sweet corn.
Note: Try not to crowd the pan or pot with veggies else it will steam instead of cooking crisp and make the final dish soggy. To avoid this, share the rice and the vegetables into 3 portions
-Stir fry each portion of veggies with the portioned rice in a non-stick pan, vegetable oil and onions
-Taste and adjust the seasoning with salt,maggi and pepper, if necessary 
-Serve with the fish spread with tomato sauce and garnish with Lemons and lettuce for optimum taste.
