Veg Fried Rice, though having chinese origins, has over the years been re-invented in so many different ways, that it would be totally justified to call it an Indian dish . The recipe I describe here is something I had when I first came to Bangalore some 10 years ago. Needless to say, it was delicious enough to leave such a lingering impact on my taste buds .
For veg fried rice, one needs to keep two rules in mind. Firstly use fresh, colourful veggies and secondly, dice them very fine and uniform.I have used beans, carrots, red bell pepper, and corn kernels.Also for enhanced flavour, I have used Basmati rice.
Once all the prep is done, heat some oil in a kadhai. Brown off some onion slices and then add the chopped vegetables. Cook for around 5 minutes, and then mix in the boiled rice. Toss well over high heat so that the veggies are well incorporated into the rice. Season with salt, black pepper, white pepper and a dash of lemon juice. Optionally, you can also add 1 tbsp of soya sauce.Cook for another 5 minutes, and then serve hot garnished with coriander leaves.
You can have fried rice with any curry accompaniment. However it would be paired best with veg manchurian. Whatever your preferences, try out this simple recipe in your kitchen and enjoy it with your friends and family .
