Denise's Saffron Vegetable Fried Rice

An interesting meld of Indian and Chinese cooking. My husband's cousin always makes this yummy rice for family gatherings. This is her recipe as told to me over the phone. Amounts in the ingredients are our best guesses since she doesn't measure the ingredients. I omitted the salt in the recipe because I cook low salt. You can add salt to taste at step 6. Very little is needed if you choose to add msg and bear in mind that oyster sauce usually contains some salt.
