Veg Fried Rice

There are many ways in which rice dishes are prepared. For me this veg fried rice is a easy lunch box preparation whichis filling as well as healthy. Also I prepare it during fridge cleaning days as we can add as many veggies(mostly those small pieces of cabbage, carrots etc). Today it looked very colorful with veggies so I thought of clicking pictures. I even add paneer or mushrooms too when available.

Ingredients required-

  1. Basmati rice – 1 cup
  2. Onion – 1 medium
  3. Carrot- 1
  4. Beans – 5-6
  5. Capsicum-1
  6. Sweet corn – 1/4 cup
  7. Garlic- 8-10 pods
  8. Pepper powder – 3tsp
  9. Soya sauce- 3 tsp
  10. Salt if required
  11. Oil – 3+1tsp
  12. Green chilly – 1

Method of preparation-

  • Chop the onion, carrots, beans, capsicum, green chilly into very small pieces. Also cut the garlic pods. I had chopped ginger and coriander leaves so used that as well.
  • Wash the rice and cook it. Add 1tsp oil while cooking to avoid sticking. Do not overcook it. Strain and cool it completely. Generally I prepare rice the previous night and keep.
  • Now take a pan add oil, you may add more oil if you like. Add ginger, garlic, green chilly and saute well.
  • Next add onion and fry till brown.
  • Then add carrots, beans and corn. Fry them on high flame.
  • Next add corn and capsicum and keep stirring. At this point you can add paneer, baby corn or mushrooms too.
  • Then add pepper powder and soya sauce. You can add little salt but soya sauce contains salt so check before adding.
  • Finally add the cooked rice and mix carefully without breaking the grains.
