Whenever there is a leftover rice, I think of fried rice. I love Chicken Fried Rice (Recipe Here) but had never tried making a vegetarian version. I had bought tofu to make a curry out of it but decided to incorporate it in the fried rice. I just mixed basic mixed vegetables, tofu, and some spices to create this dish. Here you go guys, below is the step by step process to make Nepali Style Tofu Fried Rice :)
