Vegetable fried rice

Cooking rice is always a blissful experience especially when it turns out light, fluffy, non-sticky, non-gluey. We will make a separate post on how we cook our rice in three different methods. Let us present to you our favorite vegetable fried rice today.

Vegetable fried rice recipe
Serves – 4
Preparation time – 20 minutes

White rice – 4 cups, cooked
Oil/butter – 2 teaspoons
Garlic – 4 cloves, finely chopped
Ginger – ½ inch piece, finely chopped
Green chillies – 4, two-inch long, medium hot, finely chopped or slit at the stem end
Spring onions – 4 stalks, cut into ½ cm pieces
Cabbage – 1 cup, chopped
Carrot – ½ cup, finely diced
French beans – ½ cup, cut into ¼-inch lengths
Cauliflower – 1 cup, flowerettes (optional)
Knol-knol – ½ cup, cut into slender cubes (optional)
Soy sauce – 2 tablespoons
Tomato sauce – 1 tablespoon
Black pepper powder – 1 teaspoon
Salt – 1 teaspoon
Vegetable stock – 1/3 cup or 2 teaspoons vegetable stock powder

Method: Cook the rice, strain, and keep aside. Keep aside 1 tablespoon spring onions for garnish. Heat oil/butter in a flat-bottomed wide skillet over moderate heat. Add garlic, ginger, green chillies, and onions and stir-fry continously taking care not to brown it. When the onions turn limp, add the spring onions, cabbage, french beans, cauliflower, knol-knol, and carrots and stir-fry everything together for 7-8 minutes or until 3/4th tender. Add the vegetable stock, stir, and cook for 2 more minutes. Add cooked rice, soy sauce, tomato sauce, salt and stir-fry for another 3 minutes and serve on a rice plate. Garnish with the remaining spring onions. Vegetable fried rice is a complete meal by itself - the good combination would be with a soup and/or a simple side dish. Enjoy!

Like every other My Dhaba entry, this one looked yummy and had to be made. So we did today with Chili Chicken to accompany it. Simply delightful on a cold winter's night. Thanks, VKN!

I have tasted fried rice in many hotels and Dhaba, but every time I found it different from previous one, don't know why? May be there is no standard recipe to cook fried rice or every restaurants has its own unique way of cooking. God Knows!
