Many of the occasions, we are left with some extra rice, post lunch or dinner. One of the best ways to utilise this left-over rice is to prepare some fried rice with added vegetables, eggs, chicken etc., whatever you like. This also serves the purpose of a perfect tiffin menu. Mexican fried rice, as described here, is almost similar to our very know Chinese fried rice, we usually prepare and are pretty fond of. Only the difference is that, it is spicier and much flavourful due to the ample use of tomato & chilli sauces and dried herbs. Also the presentation of egg, atop the rice gives it a unique look compared to common fried rice dishes. Obviously one can use a freshly prepared rice, which I did, for this recipe and omitting egg will make the dish completely vegetarian.
