I prepare this rice often with different vegetables available in my pantry. You can also add baby corn, Non-vegetarians can also add any meat of their choice or even shrimp to this recipe. The two main two ingredients that you should not miss while preparing this fried rice recipe are green/spring onions and soy sauce. The addition of celery adds a wonderful aroma and crunch.
