Veg Fried Rice Recipe
Amma/Mom, the word itself gives so much happiness, energy and hope to life. No one and nothing can compensate a Mom and her unconditional love and care. I lost my MOM on May 20th 2016 due to sudden cardiac arrest at the age of just 50. I never thought that I will not meet her forever.
It is one month now but I am in that same state of shock, pain, fear and loss. I have no good reason to console myself and stay strong. She is not that much old or not sick person. On May 19th night 9.45 pm India Time, I spoke to her and she was normal happy and excited because of her daughter( My sis) and grand daughter's arrival. It was only a 13 minutes conversation, usually our call will not end before 2 hours but that day I wasn't feeling well  with severe dizziness and headache that i couldn't lift my head. So she felt sad for me and told me to take rest and said, that she will call me in the morning to check how I am doing.

Didn't expect that was the last words she spoke to me, those words still ringing in my words and I am asking myself why She didn't call me. I don't why I am not lucky and fortunate to have my mother with me for few more years. Later, 20th Early morning around 3.30(India Time) My sis called me and said that Mommy had breathing problem and I called Ambulance, but within few minutes she fell down unconscious. Initially I thought may be due to Low or High BP she may fainted and told her not to panic. After 15-20 minutes Ambulance reached home and my sister got some hope Ok mommy will be alright we can take her to hospital and treat her and she told me, Akka ambulance came I will call you after reaching hospital. But we didn't know tat Mommy already left us, the Ambulance Attendant checked Mom and said that she Passed Away. 

Here, I waited impatiently and hoped everything will be fine. But my hope didn't last for even 5 minutes, My sister called me again and said Mommy Ila akka(Mom is no more). Terribly shocked and I couldn't believe what she told me, I kept asking her How this could be possible, She told me that she will call me, I promised her that We will visit as soon as we get our visa extension approved and from next year we will definitely be there for every summer holidays. And she was also Ok and was satisfied and happy with skype video chats. All she wanted was me and my sis to call her daily, and that was her hope for life. Even this thousand and thousand miles apart didn't hurt her as we used to talk/video chat daily for hours together. But unfortunately, our dreams, hope and wishes were all broken into pieces within few minutes.

The past 30 days were really toughest and painful days in my life, I couldn't accept the truth, only the days are passing. My dad and some of my besties suggested me to start writing my blog Or do something creatively to cherish my mom's memories. Some days I am ok but most of the time, the absence of my mom makes me so weak and gives so much pain and stress. I know she herself will not be happy or she herself will suffer, me seeing like this. But I couldn't control myself. On Saturday, we did prayer for her 30th day rituals and I cooked some of her favorite dishes and One of her most favorite is this Indo-Chinese Veg Fried Rice. She loves Veg Fried Rice a lot, I don't know whats special in this simple stir fried rice but she loves it a lot and whenever we cross a Fast Food Shop, She never failed to buy fried rice for her and Gobi Manchurian For me and my sister.
After the pooja, I just clicked few pictures to share here.

My Mom was so much eager to see my 1000th post(879th post now), She was always proud of my blog, cooking, photography etc., There's not even a single day passed without my mom's appreciation for one or the other things. I can keep writing about her love and sacrifices she had done for us but will stop here and continue in my coming posts.

While Sauteing vegetables and rice, keep the heat in medium high.
The vegetables needs to be crunchy so don;t saute for long time.
I like to add sauces over the rice, so that the vegetables remain fresh and in original color. But you can also add the sauces to the vegetables, stir fry and then add rice, enough salt and stir fry well.
I used Ching's Soy Sauce and Green Chilli Sauce.
