Fried Rice with Chicken and Prawns

I'm at Trivandrum for Christmas. It's jingle season all for me and the fond memories of earlier Christmas fun. I  tried to revive those memories with crib and the xmas tree.

During this stay in Trivandrum, I tried my hands on Fried Rice with Chicken and prawns. This mixed fried rice was with the two main ingredients and mixed vegetables and eggs.

This photo was taken by my brother-in-law in his big digital camera. He has a good sense to frame the fired rice along with homemade wine.
