Chinese Fried Rice


Basmati Rice : 2 cups (soaked for 10 minutes & drained)
Chilli Garlic Sauce : 1 tbs
Green Chilli Sauce : 2 tbs
Soy sauce : 2 tbs
White pepper powder : 1 tsp
Spring Onions : 4 nos (cut finely)
Capsicum : 1 (chopped)
Carrot : 1 (Chopped)
Cabbage : 2 cups (Chopped)
Vegetable Stock : 1 can
Salt : 1 1/2 tsp


Cook basmati rice in an electric rice-cooker. Give a quick stir to the rice with a tsp of oil before adding water . Add a can of vegetable stock and 1 1/2 cups of water. Remove rice from the cooker and set it to cool on a large plate and keep the grains seperated.

Heat a frying pan and add 2 tbs of oil. When the pan is really hot (before the smoking point), add half of the cut spring onions & chopped vegetables. Stir-fry it for a few minutes. Quickly add in the sauces, pepper powder and salt . Return this veg-sauce mix to the rice and make sure the all the grains are evenly coated with the sauce.

Garnish with remaining spring onions and serve.

Cook's Notes:

Make sure you stir fry the vegetables on a high flame. Adding Vegetable stock enhances the taste and the color of fried rice. Don't overcook the vegetables.
