Egg Fried Rice - Kerala style


While growing up , dining out in chinese restaurants once in a while , was a luxury we used to look forward with so much enthusiasm. The hot fried rice served with Gobi Manchurian, Chilli chicken, mushroom chilli and on the sides vinger-soy-chilli sauce , tomato chilli sauce ...Ooh la la .....

Those Indo chinese dishes were so tongue tickling that i couldn't yet find an equivalent with anything else i eat here. 


I was talking to my friend R in India about this Chinese joints recently and she was telling me that with the mushroom growth of the he  Indo - Chinese restaurants back home ,things have definitely changed with them , as they don't taste the  taste as they used to.. I wonder what that would be ....

The inspiration to cook an egg fried rice and Chilli chicken came from this chit chat with R . I also made the vinegar -soy-chilli sauce to get that restaurant effect ( who doesn't like restaurant food?). My mom loves this sauce so much , I remember she is the one who always ask for a second bowl of the same :)
