Vegetable Fried Rice is an easy to make quick rice with vegetables and cooked with sauces that kids will love it. This version of veg fried rice has mixed vegetables that makes it healthy as well.
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.
This joins my Anniversary Party for Kid’s Delight, celebrating 7 years of Spice your Life!
How to make the Vegetable Fried Rice
Cooking the Rice
Since the rice has to be dry and separated, using rice that was cooked the previous day surely helps. Else while cooking on the day, make sure you don’t over cook the 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.
Making the Vegetable Fried rice
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 smoky 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.
