Spring onion fried rice

This recipe was born out of the sheer compulsion to use up the spring onion that was left over. I had some left over rice and these spring onions lying in the fridge. I do not use spring onions much except for Chinese. And I hate to see vegetables rot. Therefore, after a lot of thought, I decided to cook up this rice. The rice is easy, and uses some simple ingredients and still extremely tasty. The hint of pepper and the butter makes this rice absolutely delectable.
