  13. Finally mix this with the rice and serve hot .
  14. Garnish with spring onion green part.

My Observations:
I mostly skip adding soya sauce and green chilly sauce.
You can add ajinomoto if you wish.
After adding soya sauce don’t cook with high flame.
While you saute the vegetables, ensure that they get cooked to 50%.
To increase the spice level you can adjust pepper level.
You have to chop the vegetables very thin.
