Chinese Vegetable Fried Rice
Posted by Annita on March 15, 2006
|The harmonious integration of color, taste, and appearance made Chinese Cuisine popular all over the world. The choice of various ingredients, seasonings and the heating mechanism used in chinese cooking gives such a great perfection to all the senses.People in different countries add their own flavours and spices to Chinese food to customize it to their own taste. Fried rice ,with Gobi Manchurian as its side,is one of the tastiest and popular dishes in Indo-Chinese menu.I’ve got a real passion towards Chinese dishes,whatever it be.This is my favourite recipe of Chinese Fried rice and it’s always been a hit in my home.|
|Cooked & Cooled rice – 2 cups(Usually short grain rice like Sona Masoori gives a better look..)
Choped onion- 1/2 cup
Diced vegetables(Carrot,Green Beans)- 1/2 cup
Green Peas -1/4 cup
Chopped Capsicum,Celery & Spring Onion- 1/2 cup
Whole dry chillies slit-3
Soya Sauce -2 tsp
Green Chilly Sauce – 1 tsp
Pepper powder – 1 tsp
Vinegar – 1 tsp
Ajinomotto -a pinch(I do not recommend using this for home cooking eventhough it enhances the taste.As everyone knows,its really really bad for health.)You can also use Bouillon cubes instead of Ajinomotto which is available in grocery stores.Bouillon cubes are not bad for health.You can get this even in health stores.
Salt – to taste
Olive Oil/Salad Oil – as needed
|Heat oil in a pan and add onion and red chillies.Add all the diced vegetables and green peas and saute well.Add soya sauce,chilly sauce and salt to it.Stir for few minutes.Now add ajinomotto,capsicum,celery and spring onion and cook till vegetables are tender . Cook utill all the water evaporates.Finally add cooled rice to it and mix well on high heat.Add pepper powder and vinegar and again stir well.Garnish with Spring Onion greens.You can also add scrambled egg along with this.
If you have got all the ingredients ready,the process won’t take more than 10 minutes.You can follow the same procedure for chicken or beef fried rice,but it takes more cooking time.Serve it along with Gobi Manchurian.An excellent fusion cooking recipe of Gobi Manchurian is available in Hooked On Heat.
