Vegetable Fried Rice

Vegetable fried rice is a simple, easy and delicious fried rice recipe with mixed vegetables like capsicums peas, French beans,  carrots etc and whole Indian spices. The veg Fried rice recipe is a nice healthy variation to the good old pulao or chawal recipe.

Ingredients :

Basmati Rice : 2 cups
Mixed Vegetable :  chopped small (could be carrots, beans, cabbage, capsicum)
Cashew nuts ; 8-10
Raisin : 8-10
Pepper Powder : 1/2 tsp.
Biriyani Masala : 1 tbsp.
Sugar : 2 tbsp.
Salt to taste
Ghee : 2 tbsp.
Refine oil : 2 tbsp.

Method :

Wash the rice well keep aside for the water to drain out.

Cook the rice and drain the water. Be careful the rice is not over cooked. For this be careful ... the pinch of the grain between the two fingers can feel the minute hardness in the middle... when the water has to be drained and the rice spread out on a open plate.

Heat a large pan on medium high heat, add oil.

When oil is hot add carrots, beans, cabbage capsicum, stir fry for 2 to 3 minutes. Take care that vegetables are not overdone, they should be crisp and keep aside.

Now heat oil and ghee in a wok, add all the seasoning ingredients, when seeds are crackel the add rice, vegetables, pulao masala, sugar and salt, cashew nuts and raisin, mix well with rice for a couple of minutes over low flame.

Secret tip for enhancing the flavor is to use some (small amount) biryani masala if available. Trust me that renders an awesome aroma to the rice.

Serve Hot.
