VEGETABLE FRIED RICE (CHINESE STYLE)

The thing I like about “Fried rice” is the pepper flavour. My hubby also love that very much. This is my fried rice recipe I am loving,which I am hooked, after so many attempts. I prefer and recommend using olive oil,as it gives a nice flavour and better for health too..!
Vegetable fried rice


Ingredients

Basmati/ long grain rice -1 cup
Cabbage,chopped - 1 cup
Carrot - 1
Capsicum - 1
Spring onion - 6 sprigs
Pepper - 1 & 1/4 tsp
Soy sauce - 1 tsp
Ajinomoto(optional) -1/2 tsp
Salt - As needed
Olive oil - 4 tbsp


Fried rice

Method:

  1. Soak basmati rice for 20 mins and cook rice with  1 & 1/2 cups water. Cool and make the grains separate.
  2. Cut the veggies as long thin strips as shown in the picture. Chop the base white part of spring onion and the green part separately. All the veggies
  3. Edited to Add: This is the way I julienned the carrots..Click to enlarge the picture.Hope it is clear to understand.

  4. Heat a broad pan and add the olive oil. First add the white part of the spring onion and then carrot,cabbage and capsicum,in order one by one,frying each for a minute. (add ajinomoto at this stage,if wanted)

  5. Lastly add the pepper and soya sauce and give it a stir.Add the spring onion green part and give it a stir. All the process has to be done in high flame.



  6. Transfer this to the cooled rice along with salt and mix well. Toss all together in a wide wok until you hear rice crackling sound. Eat hot !!


I prefer this to serve with any kind of Manchurian side dish!

Notes:

I used freshly ground black pepper powder, you can substitute with white pepper powder.

Don't over fry the veggies,retain its colour and crunchiness.

Be liberal in adding olive oil. Always eat hot!!

    Replies
    1. You first clean the carrots. Then length of the carrot cut the carrot in to 4 peaces. like an cylinder. Then cut each cylinder in thin pieces. In western countries called Julian cuts you can google it.

  54. Luks yummy,BTW which brand basmathi rice do u use? Cos iwhen I make pulao or fried rice, it gets overcooked.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. I use Lal Quila. The key is to soak the rice as long as you can and cook in less water. Some times I use only 1 : 1 water ratio also .
