Fried cauliflower rice – Gobi fried rice

Fried rice is so easy and quick to make if all the required things are kept ready. In this gobi fried rice, we use fried gobi or gobi 65 for this fried rice. I like chicken 65 or fried chicken fried rice than the normal chicken fried rice. Bcoz I love chicken 65 or the fried one a lot. That was the inspiration which made me cook this fried gobi fried rice. It tastes more delicious than the regular fried rice and you can have it plain as the fried gobi itself gives a nice crunchy texture to the fried rice. I served it along with tomato sauce and chilli vinegar. I used freshly cooked rice you can also use leftover rice instead.
