If you have ever thought what you could do with the boiled rice you made on weekdays, this onion fried rice recipe could be the perfect way to add some zing to your left over rice, the North Indian way.
Fortunately, this recipe does not require too many unfamiliar ingredients and is perfectly suitable for my Western audience.
This could be the easiest way to turn out the equivalent of the great Indian Pulao without breaking into a sweat.
