Vegetable Fried Rice

Many of us love fried rice and we love to eat it especially in restaurants. We can make the same fried rice with the same taste in our kitchen and its very easy too. You can make any vegetable kuruma or any gravy of  your choice for this fried rice.


Basmati Rice - 2 cups
Onion - 1 cup (finely chopped)
Green chillies - 4 or 5 (slitted)
Mixed vegetables - 1 cup (finely chopped carrot, beans, capsicum/bell pepper)
Spring onion/Green onion - 1/2 bunch (finely chopped)
Soy sauce - 2 tsp
Ajinomoto/MSG - 1/2 tsp (optional)
Butter/Ghee - 1 tbsp
Salt - to taste
Oil - 2 tbsp


1) Heat a pan. Add butter/ghee. Also add 1/2 of the chopped spring onions.

2) Now add the rice and roast it for few mins. Add about 2 cups of water for 1 cup rice. Also add salt and 1/4 tsp of ajinomoto to it and cook it in electric cooker or pressure cooker. Do not overcook the rice. See that rice is cooked as all grains are separate and keep it aside.

3) Now heat a pan, add oil, chopped onions and green chillies.

4) Saute if for a minute and add the remaining spring onions and the chopped vegetables.

5) Saute it for about 2 mins, add soy sauce, salt and ajinomoto.

Tasty and homemade vegetable fried rice is ready now.
