Fenugreek Fried Rice ….Indo-Chinese Version

P1020435
Hi!
I used to experiment a lot with the basic Chinese sauces during my college days, which has reduced considerably now a days. I would use them in making sandwiches, salads and many more things, sadly half of them I do not recollect now. During one of those experiments I made this rice and was genuinely impressed with my culinary skills. At that age getting complimented for a good preparation makes you feel so proud, so I also took no time to reach cloud nine and this became a secret recipe to impress guests and friends…LOL surely this  was a super hit amongst all who tasted it.
Whenever I would make this rice and carry it in my lunch box, I would rarely get to taste it, all my friends would attack my lunch box and finish it off..to top this was my friend A who herself is an excellent cook. Both of us love to talk about food and can spend hours discussing it. She would always ask for this recipe and I would give her a rough idea how I made it. So A, here’s your favorite preparation, I hope you will treasure it as much as I do.
The fenugreek imparts a very subtle aroma to this preparation and does not overpower the taste buds with it’s bitterness. The preparation is light to eat and extremely flavourful. It’s a good way to make children eat the fenugreek. This recipe is my personal recommendation, so do try it once!!
Ingredients
3 cups cooked rice
2 cups Fenugreek leaves (plucked)
2 onions sliced
4  super seasoning cubes
2 tsp white pepper
2-3 tbsp green chili sauce
2 –3 tsp soya sauce
oil for cooking
salt to adjust
Method
Heat oil add onions and saute till transparent.
Add the washed fenugreek leaves and saute, cook till the leaves wilt.
Add the crushed super seasoning powder and white pepper. Mix properly, add soy sauce and green chili sauce. Cook on high flame, add rice and mix. Add salt if required.

This rice can be a complete meal in itself. Relish when served hot.
