One of the few things I love doing when my men are not around is going for a long walk, on way back take a lazy stroll at the local mall and taste food from various stalls at the food courts. The wanderer in me wander alone, hops from this stall to that and taste the variety of spread they offer. The foodie in me loves doing so. These food court stalls may not offer dishes authentic of their place, there are changes made according to the local taste buds. What I like about them is a variety of food offered under one roof.
In one of our local food court, there is one Taiwanese joint selling various omelette wrapped stuffs. The rice lover in me specially love their Omelette Wrapped Fried Rice. Due to severe haze , I am not going out unless necessary. Hence I tried to recreate it at home in my own way. I prepared a vegetarian version of fried rice with mushrooms, green peas, carrots and onions. We can add other vegetables and chicken too to it. They usually serve it with a clear soup and salad. I omitted the soup as my men are not soup lovers and served it with fresh salad. Let us do it.
