Veg Fried Rice (Without Ajinomoto)
Last Updated on
Rice with the goodness of vegetables…and give it the name Chinese everyone simply loves it. Good thing is that we do not cook the vegetables in Chinese or rather Indo Chinese too much so the goodness of the vegetables remains. Enjoy the crunchy vegetables with Manchurian or any chinese gravy. Simply yummy.
- 1/2 cup Mixed Bell Peppers either cut in lengthwise or squares. (Green, Red, Yellow, all is good, but if you have 1 that is also fine.)
- 1/4 cup Green Onion cut lengthwise or squares
- 1/4 cup Carrot finely chopped
- 1/4 cup Beans diagonally cut (In the picture it cannot be seen as I did not had it)
- 1/4 cup Green onion leaves chopped finely

- 1 teaspoon Grated Garlic
- Black Pepper powder (Kali mirch) as per taste
- 2 tablespoon Olive Oil
- 1 tablespoon Soya sauce
- 1/2 tablespoon vinegar
- 1 Cup of Rice
- Salt to taste
Preparation of Rice:
- Soak the rice for at-least 15 minutes.
- In a large pan boil Enough water, around 4-5 cups. Add 1/2 teaspoon salt in it.
- Once the water starts boiling add the rice.
- Now cook the rice till 90% done. Do not cook fully or else it becomes soft and break when you mix it with the vegetables. The remaining 10% of Rice gets cooked when you mix it with all the vegetables.
- Use a strainer to drain the water. In this way the rice is cooked more properly and opens out very nicely.
