Lunch today was vegetable fried rice

Take a big wide pan.

Fry some cumin seeds and onions in oil. (add some salt, it helps to draw out the moisture).

Fry for a few more minutes, then add water. (Mother-in-law’s tip: the water should be enough to soak the rice and veggies, about an inch high).

Bring the mixture to a boil, then reduce the flame to the lowest, cover it and let it cook (mainly) undisturbed. You can stir it once.

Rice is ready.
