Soya Chilli and Soya chilli Rice

To decide what to pack 5 days a week in my daughter's lunchbox, has become a big challenge for me. As recently her choice circulates among burger, hotdog and pastas only, which I don't approve for each week.

So last week I tried this soya chilli and then one idea clicked me, why not make a chinese style fried rice with this soya chilli, which will be tasty as well as healthy and filling. For my surprise, she liked it and gave her approval that I can pack this for her lunch-box next day. I was so happy. This Soya chilli rice is a great lunch-box menu for older kids as well as grown-ups.
