Bellpepper & Red Radish Fried Rice wih Mango Pickle Thokku/Pickled Vegetable Fried Rice

Fried rice with mango pickle thokku, does this recipe title intrigue you? yes this fried rice is completely a fusion dish. Actually am a person who love to give a try to different dishes with the simple ingredients available in my pantry. This rice was prepared simply with the mango pickle thokku left aside in my pickle jar after having the  mango chunks from my aunt's Andhra sytle mango pickle.Usually i'll mix this thokku with warm white rice if i dont feel like making gravies especially if am alone at home. Warm rice mixed with mango pickle thokku served with fried papads makes an excellent filling meal, one can have it without any fuss if you love spicy foods as much as like me, a comforting food for spice food lovers.

Since my daughter and my better half go to their work with their lunch boxes, i have to plan their lunch mostly with variety of one pot meals. One of my recent trial is this bellepper and red radish fried rice with leftover mango pickle thokku.Cooked rice when sauteed with chopped bellpeppers,chopped red radish spiced with mango pickle thokku makes this mildy spiced,easy breezy and very delicious pickled fried rice. Trust me, this pickled fried rice will tickle your tastebuds,definitely a quick fix. You can make this fried rice with varieties of vegetables or simply with paneer cubes.

3cups Cooked basmati rice
1/2cup Red & green bellpepper (chopped)
1/4cup Red radish (chopped)
