I am the happiest person when I end up with some leftover rice….why?!! That’s because I get to make this awesome Veg Fried Rice that tastes just like the ones we order at our favorite Chinese take away 😬
I had made my Pahadi Rajma along with Bharwa Baingan to go with some plain rice last night….and ended up with about 2 cups of leftover rice. I was smiling to myself….knowing just what I would do with it today!!
This also pairs really well with some Schezwan Paneer…or just add a dollop of my Homemade Schezwan Sauce to go with it.
Let’s get started with the recipe..
Yield: serves 1
Equipment: measuring cups/ spoons, a wok, a spatula.
2 cup cooked rice
3-4 tbsp oil
1/4 cup finely chopped onion
2 tbsp roughly chopped garlic
1/4 cup each of chopped carrot, green capsicum, spring onion greens, spring onion.
salt & pepper to taste
1/4 tsp sugar
1 tbsp soy sauce
1 tsp vinegar
Heat oil in the wok, once it’s hot enough, tip in the chopped onions & garlic. Cook for about 2-3 mins. Then season with salt and pepper. Add the rest of the chopped veggies.
Cook for about 3 mins. The veggies should not be too soft and mushy. Then add the sugar, soy sauce & vinegar. Also, add the cooked rice. Mix everything well but carefully, take care that the rice should break.
Let the rice turn slightly golden, that takes about 3-4 mins on medium heat. That’s it. It’s ready…serve piping hot!
I am sure no one can resist this! A perfect One-Pot comfort meal👌🏼
