Vegetable Fried Rice Recipe

These days fried rice has become synonymous with unhealthy food. We are cautioned against eating unhygienically prepared fried rice at the roadside stalls. But this can be prepared as healthy as possible at home without having to compromise on taste. This is my simple version of the globally popular Chinese Fried Rice. Fresh vegetables and spices are cooked over high heat and tossed with perfectly cooked rice. I do not use MSG in my cooking and this is no exception. Here goes the recipe for this easy fried rice!

  • For this recipe, I usually cook basmati rice in boiling water till done and then strain. This method keeps the rice grains separate.
  • Chopped onions and cabbage can also be added.
  • You can cut the vegetables into julienne (long thin strips) instead of chopping them.
  • White pepper powder can be used instead of black pepper powder.
  • Cooking should be done over high flame.
  • Vegetables should be crunchy. Don’t overcook them.
