20150908_131941This is perfect for when your are in a rush, maybe I should rename this dish  to ‘perfect polony fried rice’. Its easy, its yummy and I guess it would fit the bill of being cheap! I used frozen veggies for obvious reasons – ‘time waits for no man’ – but if you do have time on hand then I would definitely recommend fresh veggies – fresh is best -. I used lamb polony, beef polony can also be used. Polony is not used that often in households anymore, it use to be quite popular back in the good old days. You will be able to buy polony at most South African butchers, it’s a specialty of theirs.
