SOUTHERN STYLE CHINESE FRIED RICE

Recently I happened to see an interesting recipe in a recent magazine. I found the name very interesting because the name was Chinese fried rice, but there were no vegetables, no spring onions or no onions included. I wondered how the taste would be if the main veges were missing in the fried rice and initially I was a bit hesitant to try this. My hubby encouraged me to try this. The recipe was given by an Executive Chef from The Park, Hyderabad.
