Step By Step Instructions for Veg Fried Rice Recipe
Soak 1 cup rice in water for 15-20 minutes.
Boil rice in around 2 cups of water along with 1 tsp oil and 1 tsp salt. Cook them in an open container without covering them. The rice should not be overcooked.
Once cooked spread the rice out to separate the grains and let them cool down. You can also run them gently under cool water in a colander to stop the cooking process.
Heat oil in a pan and fry the minced garlic and ginger.
Add the Spring Onions, Carrots, Cabbage, Capsicum and Peas and stir fry them on high heat for 3-4 minutes. Keep tossing & stirring the vegetables continuously. The vegetables should be cooked but still retain their crunchiness.
Add Soy Sauce, Vinegar along with salt, pepper & red chilli powder. Be careful while adding salt, as soy sauce has salt in it.
Now add the cooked rice and mix well to coat the rice with the sauces & veggies.
Vegetable Fried Rice is ready. Serve it hot with an indo-chinese side dish like Veg Manchurian.
