Vegetable fried rice (Serves 4)

Indo-chinese dishes are very popular in India. Vegetable fried rice is one among those we crave all the time and what we miss so much when living outside India. Hats off to the creators behind these delicious Chinese yet Indian recipes..And here is our take on it….

You’ll need

Basmati Rice 2 cups (any kind of long grain rice can be used)
Red Onions ½ cup, finely chopped
Cabbage ½ cup, thinly sliced
Carrots ½ cup, thinly sliced
Green onions 4 stalks (white bulb part and green part separated)
Tomato sauce 1 tsp
Red chilly sauce 1 tsp
Green chilly sauce 1 tsp
Soy Sauce 4 TBSP
Black pepper powder 1 tsp
Oil 2 TBSP
Salt as needed
Water to cook the rice


Pre-cooking instructions..

Wash and soak basmati rice for 30 minutes. Cut the green part (diagonally) of green onions for garnish. Slice the white part to go into the rice. In a bowl, mix the tomato sauce, red chilly sauce, soy sauce and green chilly sauce and keep aside.

Cook the rice in 5 to 6 cups of water and drain in a colander when they are 80% done. Allow the rice to cool and stick in the refrigerator for 15 to 20 minutes (this helps rice to hold its texture). Meanwhile heat (med-high) oil in a deep bottomed wok or kadai and add white onions, and chopped red onions. Sauté them well for 3 minutes and add salt and pepper powder. Give them another minute to sauté and add in the cabbage and carrots. Cook the veggies for 2 minutes. Now add in the sauces and wait for everything to come to a boil. Simmer the stove and add cooked-cooled rice in batches and mix well. Turn the heat off and transfer to a serving plate. Garnish with green part of green onions and enjoy this lovely vegetable fried rice with any kind of Indo Chinese curries…


Add green beans (thinly sliced) or any color bell peppers (finely chopped) for more color to the rice.
Thinner the veggies, better the taste ...
Use butter for oil and get a richly flavored fried rice..
