Veg Fried Rice

by - 9:26 AM

I love Indo Chinese dishes for their simplicity and flavors. The best thing about fried rice is its peppery flavor which gets me hooked and it matches perfectly with any semi dry or gravy based curry. After many not so bad or not so fine attempts, I nailed this recipe to perfection. Now this recipe makes its entry into my lunch box every week :)

Happy Independence day to all my readers!!

Procedure:

Wash and Cook basmati rice with salt, olive oil and water of 1 and 1/2 cups. Once your rice is cooked, fork it to get separate grains and keep it aside.
Heat oil in a pan and fry chopped garlic and spring onion whites until the raw smell subsides. Then add onion and fry for a min.
Now add all the vegetables one by one. Add carrots and fry them for a min and repeat this process till you are done with all the vegetables.
Do not allow them to cook. Just the raw smell needs to subside.
Now add soy sauce, green chilly sauce, sugar,salt and pepper powder.
Ensure that all the ingredients are blended well.
Finally add rice and chopped green onion.
Mix all the ingredients.
Turn your flame to high and fry for 2 mins. Make sure that you do not burn your rice.Keep Stirring to avoid burning.
Transfer the contents to a serving bowl and enjoy!!

I served mine with Semi Dry Gobi Manchuria and I loved it. Recipe for Gobi Manchuria will be up soon.

Chef Says:
1) You can use Sesame Seeds oil instead of olive oil.
2) You can even add 1 cup of cabbage along with these vegetables. Chop it finely.
3) Do not use more soy sauce, it gives a dark shade and it over powers the rice.
4) Make sure that your rice is separate and grainy.

5) I find it extremely difficult to mix rice and vegetables in the same pan. Most of the times, I tend to mess. So I mix rice and vegetables in a wide bowl and fry them.

This recipe is going to participate in my friend SJ's Independent India Event.
