Fish Fry with Fried Rice

fish fry fried rice 1

Something was wrong with my blog since morning 🙁 It was giving weird error messages and it won’t let me get in… it’s my blog and I can’t enter … how rude can technology get??!! aaarrgghh!!! Anyways, let’s cheer up with some good news 🙂 Guess what? My Egg Bowl dish was featured by Courtney from Not So Homemade, and I was awarded with the Stylish Blogger Award by Manu from Manu’s Menu…. YAY !!! super happy 🙂 You guys should visit their blog.. they have super style with lots of variety. Thank you so much Courtney and Manu, you guys made my day!

Coming back to my Valentines Day treat, here comes my fish fry with fried rice, which was our main course. I am a huge fan of fish but Arvind prefers meat over fish. Coming from eastern part of India, I am more used to eating fresh water fish as compared sea fish. On the other hand, Arvind prefers sea fish minus the head, tail and skin, has to be only fillet and mostly, it should it fried 🙂

As for the fried rice, my plan was to make a typical Chinese fried rice, but I realized that I didn’t have all the required ingredients. So, this is my version of fried rice with some colorful vegetables. It will work best if you use left over cooked rice from last night. The key point is to make sure the rice is cool before you toss it in the wok or else, it will become soggy.

I can’t make heart shape cookies or muffins or cakes.. so this is the best I could have done 😀 He loved it and was surprised to see the ‘heart on the plate’ .. love is in the air !!! 😉
