Chinese Veg Fried rice


2 cups Basmati rice or any long grain
1 cup mixed vegetables of your choice like carrots, red, yellow bell peppers, green peas, fresh or frozen kernels of corn, French beans . I used red and yellow bell peppers, fresh corn kernels, spring onions, French beans
1 tbsp spring onions finely diced
1/2 tbsp minced garlic or more if you prefer. At home garlic is used to a minimum and barely a hint.
1/4 tsp red pepper flakes
2 tbsp chilli sauce or more if you prefer a spicier one.
2 small green chillis chopped fine
1 tbsp soy sauce or more to give a stronger colour but we prefer the rice to remain little white and dont really care for the soy taste.
2 tbsp sesame oil or olive oil.
1 tsp white pepper powder,
2 tbsp greens of Spring onions.
Salt to taste.


Cook the Basmati rice with 2 1/2 cups of water and add a tsp of oil too before pressure cooking. After one whistle , take it off and keep the rice cool by fluffing it out with a fork.
Chop all vegetables uniformly like long strips. I used red and yellow bell peppers and cut them into strips.I also used fresh corn kernels,French beans,Spring onions.
Take a large wok which works best for a good stir fry. Heat the wok well , and add some oil and start by seasoning with chopped green chillies, minced garlic. Stir fry the spring onions,
Add the bell peppers and stir briskly on a high flame as we want the vegetables to cook lightly and retain the crunch. Add the pre cooked corn kernels and remaining vegetables.
Add the cold fluffed out Basmati rice and mix well with the vegetables, keep stirring and add the soy sauce, green chilli sauce, red pepper flakes, white pepper,salt and add little sesame oil .
When the fried rice is still hot lastly add the greens of the spring onions as it will retain the nice crunch and the colour after the rice is done.
Serve hot .
