Indian Fried Rice with Green Beans

Fried rice is one of my quick and easy veggie meals I love to make.

I decided I wanted to take my usual fried rice recipe and turn it into Indian Fried Rice with Green Beans.

This is one simple meal.

I took broth, you could use vegetable or chicken broth and I cooked the rice in the broth with turmeric and curry powder.

Next, after the rice was cooked I sauteed the onion, garlic and green beans in a little olive oil.

Lastly, I added the cooked rice to the veggies and it’s really that simple people.

The results are delicious.

You end up with a big bowl of well seasoned, crispy rice with tasty fresh vegetables.
