Vegetable Fried Rice / Chinese Fried Rice...

If you love Chinese then I know you are hooked on to chinese fried rice for sure. Its not just us but everybody around. We all love chinese but somehow I feel it isnt healthy when I buy it outside. I am not sure about why that feel but yes I prefer to have fried rice at home rather than getting it from outside

It is a very very simple no-fail recipe that everyone can try in their kitchen and get their family happy. My kids are overjoyed when this is packed for lunch to school. They feel very good when sharing with their friends too. The use of soya sauce is my concern but once in a while is ok I guess. It is quick to make so helps a lot in the kitchen when packing for school

Cook rice, half cook vegetables, add a couple of spices, toss everything together and you are done :) Can it get any simpler??????????

Serves... 2 ppl
Serve option... Hot

This is what u'll need....

Basmati Rice - 1 cup
Cabbage - 1 small piece
Capsicum - 1/2
Carrot - 1 small
Beans - 3 
Garlic - 4 big cloves
Pepper - 1 tspn
Vinegar - 1 tspn
Soya sauce - 1-2 tspn
Sugar - 1 tspn
Oil - 1 tbspn + 1 tspn
Salt to taste

Here is the stir....

  • Wash and soak basmati rice for about 30 minutes
  • Pour 2 cups of water to a wide pan and bring it to a boil

  • Add a teaspoon of oil and little salt to the water

  • Add drained rice to the pan and cook it covered on high for about 3-4 minutes. Then let it cook on medium flame for about 8-10 minutes
  • Once done fluff it up with a fork to keep the rice from sticking
  • Chop the vegetables finely so that they cook faster. I have used cabbage, capsicum, carrot and beans
  • Heat oil in a pan. Chop garlic and toss them into the pan
  • Stir it around for just a few seconds. Add copped carrot and beans to the pan
  • Give it a good toss for about 30 seconds
  • Add chopped cabbage and capsicum
  • Mix everything well. Sprinkle a teaspoon of sugar. This will help retain the crunchiness in the veggies
  • After a few seconds add a teaspoon of vinegar
  • Spoon in a teaspoon or two of soya sauce depending on how you like it
  • Add a little big of salt. Give it a good stir
  • Add the cooked rice to the pan
  • Sprinkle desired amount of pepper powder on the rice
  • Add some chopped scallions 
  • Turn the flame to high and toss the rice and vegetables quickly so the veggies are evenly distributed across the rice. Turn off the flame in about a minute
  • Garnish with some more chopped scallions and serve hot

  • Dont overcook the vegetables
  • Add sugar to retain the colour and crunch of the veggies
  • Use soya sauce as per you taste
