My Nigerian Fried Rice Garnished With Cucumber Skin

A collage of simple fried rice.
So, I cooked this fried, hoping to get the green from the peas but after boiling them done, the green disappeared and my pot of rice looked like it's not balanced, like something is missing. Thankfully, I had some cucumbers in the fridge. Scraped only the green and gave colour. I was scared the rice might smell like cucumber but it didn't. Everything blended really well. The green skin wasn't stir fried with other vegetables. Just sprinkled on the plate after serving to take fine pictures.

With all the fried rice recipes on the blog already, I don't feel like uploading all the cooking pics. Was grilling the chicken when NEPA  struck, it ended up being fried in hot oil. Who neva sabi cook fried rice? No body.
