Vegetable Fried Rice – Chinese Style

chinese-vegetable-fried-riceVegetable Fried Rice, cooked in indian-chinese-style, with shallots, beans, carrots, onions and the goodness of asian spices and soy sauce, are truly a treat to eat! The long-grain Basmati rice is best suited to make this recipe,but jasmine rice can be substituted if you don’t have the other one. It can be prepared in a jiffy, and is a great way to get some carbs, proteins, vitamins and fiber into your system, all in one meal! Serve it with the traditional Chinese Manchurian, or even simple Cucumber Raita!

3 cups long-grained rice
3/4 cup french beans, finely chopped
3/4 cup carrots, finely chopped
1/4 cup capsicums, finely chopped
2 stalks celery, finely chopped
2 spring onions, finely chopped
1/2 tsp soy sauce
3 tbsp oil
2 green chillies – finely chopped
salt to taste

Wash the rice properly with water to remove excess starch. Then soak them in water for about 10 mins. Now cook them on the stove, along with the water, while stirring occasionally to make rice which has all grains separated, (not sticky rice). Alternately, use a slow-cooker if you wish.

Now take a pan, add the oil, saute the green chillies, then all the veggies and cook it covered for 7-8 min. Then add the soy sauce to it and let the veggies soak it well. Add salt to taste and finally the cooked rice.

Mix well and remove from flame. Garnish with remaining spring onion greens and serve hot with Veg Manchurian Gravy!!
