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.
