Thai Vegetable fried rice

We both like Thai cuisine very much. I always feel that Thai food taste a lot like our Indian food. My husband's favourite dish next to briyani is this Thai fried rice. I make this for lunch regularly as it is very easy to cook and taste great. If you have noticed, most of the dishes I post here are very simple to make and needs less time. So definitely try these recipes and let me know your comments.

(Serves 2)

1 1/2 cups uncooked Thai Jasmine rice
2 cups water
2 eggs
1 cup frozen vegetables(you can use fresh veggies also)
3 stalks of green onions chopped finely
1 cup soy sauce
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1/2 tsp pepper
2 tbsp sesame oil(if you don't have sesame oil, use any cooking oil)
salt to taste

For better taste and texture, cook and refrigerate the rice the previous day itself. Just wash the rice and cook along with little salt and 1/2 tsp oil(or as per the instruction given on the back of your rice package).

The next day whenever you are ready to cook, heat the oil in a wok. When the oil is hot enough add the slightly beaten eggs. Scramble them making sure that they don't burn and saute till they get cooked. When the eggs are cooked add the chopped onions and vegetables. Saute them for another 5 mins. Now add the cold rice, salt, soy sauce, pepper and garlic powder. Mix well and cook on high flame for 5 more mins, make sure you saute them continuously while cooking so that they don't get burned at the bottom. Garnish with little green onions and serve hot with any curry or just plain ketchup. We like to have them with spicy shrimp curry.
