Vegetable Fried Rice

For the final day of cooking for my Anniversary Party, I have a party delight. The deadly Vegetable Fried Rice with Cauliflower Manchurian. I have so many versions of these two already, I find it amusing that I cooked up this again. Our usual version of Chinese Fried Rice with Cauliflower Manchurian  is always a hit. After that, we have made so many different versions, each giving so much variation as required.

Today's version is different from our usual fare, not very much. However the smallest change makes all the difference is what I have felt! I always felt with so many different recipes all the time being made, I had to record this here, so that I can remember later. Special mention here is that the entire set-up is styled and clicked by Konda. 

I served this Vegetable Fried Rice with Cauliflower Manchurian.
 This joins my Anniversary Party for Kid's Delight, celebrating 7 years of Spice your Life!

Vegetable Fried Rice

Ingredients Needed:

Basmati Rice - 2 cups
Carrot, Frend Beans, Cabbage - 1 cup (finely chopped)
Capsicum - 2 tbsp chopped finely
Onion - 1/4 cup
Spring Onions - 1 Bunch
Garlic - 4 -5 cloves, finely minced
Soya sauce - 1 tsp
Green Chilli Sauce - 1 tsp
Pepper powder - 1.5 tsp
Oil - 2 tbsp
Salt to taste

How to make the Vegetable Fried Rice

Wash and soak the rice for 15 mins. Drain and cook in 3 times water till almost done, drain the water and fluff the rice well. Spread on a plate for the rice to cool down. If you are using a day's old rice, this turns out even better.

For the Sauteeing

Prep the vegetables and keep it ready.

In a wide kadai, heat oil, saute spring onions and minced garlic. Tilt a bit for the oil to reach the flame, for the smooky effect. 

Then add the chopped vegetables, saute on high flame. Add the soya sauce, green chili sauce, pepper powder and salt. Combine everything well and keep stirring till the vegetables get cooked.

Now add the cooked rice and mix well. Adjust the seasoning and add salt and pepper if required.
