For Diabetics - Veg Chinese Fried Rice

"This is from Tarla Dalal's Delicious Diabetic Low Cal recipe cookbook. Rice is most often avoided by diabetics, but, they can enjoy this provided they use minimal oil and more of veggies. Veggies are rich in vitamins and fibre. Select unprocessed rice like kolam or brown rice instead of polished rice which has little or no fibre and then prepare and enjoy this, GUILT FREE! Note: You may also use dalia(broken wheat) instead of rice to make this dish."
