I have added shredded  cabbage ,pinch of celery may be red bell pepper.

It is a great way to use leftovers,any kind of meat or vegetable can be added.It can be easily whipped up if u have all the ingredients and some leftover rice.

Make only what u need as you are using leftovers .Why?because the egg will start to smell and u may lose the appetite to eat it.
