VEGETABLE FRIED RICE RECIPE


 
This is our favourite rice..When my husband was in US for a short period , he used to have this rice for lunch in which the quantity of vegetables was more than rice.. After he came from there , he told me to make fried rice adding more vegetables than rice.I started making the same way and it made the rice more healthy.I used to add ajinomotto but after knowing its ill effects i stopped using it..But It din’t make any difference in taste and flavour.The only part i feel lazy/difficult is to chop the vegetables finely Winking smile.Otherwise its an easy to make dish.. It will come out very flavourful too.. Make sure u add all these vegetables to get the exact taste of fried rice.. Smile

 
 
INGREDIENTS
  • Basmati rice – 1/2 cup
  • Water – 3/4 cup
  • Vegetables [cabbage , carrot (2 nos) , beans ( 5nos) , potato (2 nos) ] – 1.5 cups (finely chopped)
  • Cooking oil – 2 tbsp

METHOD
  • Wash and soak the rice in water in for 30 minutes. Mean while chop all the vegetables finely.For spring onion , cut the stem part & leaves part separately..
  • Pressure cook the rice adding a drop of oil .. Rice should be separate & fluffy. Spread the rice in a plate and cool down completely..
  • In a wide kadai , heat oil till it slightly fumes ..Now add all the finely chopped vegetables including onions ,capsicum, stem of spring onions ,ginger & garlic pieces.. I don’t follow any order..I just add everything together..
