Fried rice is a signature dish of the Chinese. It is mainly a non vegetarian dish, but today this version is also popular.  The mild pungent taste  blended well with the vegetables making it a favourite amongst many of us. 

It is a delicious dish which can be served by itself, filled with robust flavour. It is easy to prepare and gets ready in 30 minutes. It is ideal to serve for lunch, brunch or dinner. 

A well cooked, non-sticky rice adorned with colourful veggies and enhanced with sauce makes it a delicious meal. It needs no accompaniment but Manchurian or gravy based dishes are usually served with it.

Veg Fried Rice Recipe 

The ingredients that you need are :

  • 2 cups cooked rice
  • 1/2 cup beans cut into thin long strips
  • 1/2 cup carrot cut into thin long strips
  • 1/4 cup peas
  • 1/2 cup capsicum diced
  • 5 garlic crushed
  • 2 onions cut finely
  • 4 tsp soya sauce
  • 2 tsp vinegar
  • salt to taste
  • 2 tbsp oil

To prepare :

Cook the rice with four cups of water. Once the pressure releases, remove the rice and put it aside to cool. The grains of rice should be separate.

 Take oil in a pan, add the crushed garlic and saute for sometime. Put the onions, saute till light pink. Add the veggies, first the beans, then carrots, followed by capsicum and peas.  Cook for five minutes, they need to be a little crisp, not fully cooked.  Add salt to it. Put  soya sauce and vinegar to it. Mix it. Switch of the flame.  Put rice and mix it gently. Veg fried rice is ready to serve.

Take a tip: 

  • Ajinomoto (MSG)  is usually added to it. I have not added here. I used to add it earlier, but now I have stopped it. 
  • Spring onion may be used. One can use sweet corn kernels too. 
  • Adding of vinegar is optional but it does lend a good taste to it.
  • Make sure the rice is well cooked and grains are separate.

    Fried rice is comfort food for me, whenever I want to enjoy lots of vegetables and rice together. However I don’t add peas and ajinomoto. Haven’t made it in a long time.
