Vegetable Fried Rice

                      This is one dish we make atleast once a week. Best eaten with kung pao chicken. Its one of our favourites. I make this with our everyday rice. You dont need Basmathi unless you want the long grains. Its so simple. I cook the rice separately in the rice cooker. Then make the veggies separately and mix the rice in the end. Ta Daaa...........! Fried rice ready! :) You gotta believe me that its so simple and tasty!

4 cups cooked rice(approx)
1 onion, chopped finely
1 tsp ginger garlic paste
3 green chillies, slit
1 cup mixed vegetables, diced (I used carrots, capsicum, beans)
1 tbsp oyster sauce
1 tbsp dark soya sauce
1/2 tsp black pepper powder
3 to 4 tbsps spring onions, chopped

  • In a wok, heat some oil. Saute the onions until slightly brown. 
  • Add the chillies and ginger garlic paste. Stir for a half a minute.
  • Add the chopped vegetables.
  • stir for a few minutes. Add salt and stir.
  • Add the oyster sauce and stir.

  • Add the rice little by little and keep stirring. (you dont have to add 4 cups. stop when you think the rice is enough to coat the veggies)
  • Mix well and stir in the spring onions, black pepper and soya sauce.
  • stir well and remove from flame.

  • You can scramble eggs separately and add it to your rice in the end.
  • If you want to add chicken, cut tiny pieces of chicken and add it after the ginger garlic paste.
  • It also tastes good with anchovies :)
