    Ohhh this is a GREAT idea! I have never thought of making fried rice with citrus peel! It must taste delicious! I am a big fan of citrus and orange above all (that’s why I chose it for the challenge… it is so versatile)! Thank you so much for your lovely words Purabi! Have a great day!

    This zesty fried rice sounds delicious! The orange and lime zest will definitely go well with the turmeric.

    Manu, I loved your choice of ingredient for the recipe challenge. I wanted to do something different with oranges, so thought why not try something with the citrus zests. Thanks for your kind comment, Manu.

    Hi Purabi! I never had citrus flavored fried rice before (if pineapple fried rice doesn’t count). This looks delicious!!! By the way, I love your pot/pan. I never seen anything like that. 🙂

    It’s unbelievable how much flavor the zest of citrus fruit has and we usually end up throwing it away before using it. This post has reminded me of how amazing zest is. Thanks!

    Citrus zest in rice sounds amazing. I usually only use it in sweet baked goods, like the blueberry citrus muffins I made last weekend. I often have oranges in my fridge with no zest on them because I used it for baking. 🙂
