Healthy alternative to noodles
Mom makes Chinese noodles every once in a while, and even
though I really like them, it makes me feel a little guilty afterwards. All
that white flour isn’t very healthy right? And so this time on our Chinese
noodles day we thought of trying out something a bit healthier from the same
I thought of Chinese fried rice, a very popular street food
in my town. It seemed like the perfect alternative to noodles. It’s Somewhat
cooked in the same fashion, using chopped onions cabbage veggies and eggs but
uses rice instead of noodles which off course is a lot healthier in every way.
So with my fingers crossed, mom and I started off. Soon we
are half way in the recipe and realised that the recipe is so simple that it is
hard to go wrong anywhere. And so even in the first try our fried rice, came
out beautifully which by the way wasn’t just my opinion 😉
But the best part for me about the Chinese rice was the
experience of cooking it. It was quick and effortless and made me feel good
that I had put a nice little recipe in my arsenal which could prove useful any
day. So here is how I made it and the things you’ll need to get started are
