Fried Rice


Basmati Rice - 3 rice cups (washed and discard water, to that add 4 & 1/2 cups water and cook in electric cooker)

Cook rice ahead.

Ghee + Oil - 5 tsp each

Shahjeera - 1 tsp
Cumin + Pepper - 1/2 tsp each
(powder these together)

Green Chillies - 2 no. (slit lengthwise)
Ginger and Garlic paste - 1 tsp each
Ajinomotto - 1/2 tsp

Salt to taste
Mixed Veges - 2 cups
(only - peas, carrots, corn and beans frozen packet)


Heat a wok, add ghee and oil when it's hot fry in the above order. don't mush it up the veges it's should be fried enough add cooled cooked rice and gently mix well to combine fry for few mins and serve.


I like fresh veges, rarely use frozen. Next time try this combo:

Cabbage (chopped finely), Fresh Beans (sliced thin round) and Carrot (peeled and chopped finely), replacing Mixed veges frozen packet.

Serve it with Chilli Chicken or Cauliflower Manchurian, Mirchi Ka Salan (actually you don't have to cook Hyderabadi Biriyani for this. Fresh Veges Fried Rice combo tastes even good)
