I have to agree with Bergy,we used leftover corn,mushrooms and a little bell pepper and it was delicious!I didnt have masala so I used a splash of lemon juice and some 5 spice seasoning perfect match for our entree'.Thanks for sharing!

Excellent "clean the fridge" recipe - I had left over cooked rice and veggies - used broccoli, cauliflower, mushrooms,& onion. I didn't spice this up too much because I served it with Szechuan Pork (crockpot) fabulous combination. I have some left over and I will add Carne Asada spice to it having it with a tamer recipe. Thanks Nuraan for a simple, simply good recipe.
