Fried rice is best with dry fruits

Fried rice is best with dry fruits

My family loves rice, so I’m always up for a new fried rice recipe. This one includes dried fruit and nuts, so it is both unique and full of flavor. 

My rice cooker gets put to good use at least a couple of times a week.

I always make a full batch of rice, so I’ll have leftovers to use for other meals.

This recipe can be prepared with leftover rice or you can make fresh.

The dried fruit and nuts in this dish add a sweet flavor that goes well with the spices.

It looks pretty and tastes great. It’s a quick and easy meal.

We like the apricots and cranberries for the holidays, but it also works well with other dried fruits like golden raisins or plums.
