Keyword: fried rice, indian recipe, vegetable fried rice


  • 1 cup (240 ml) rice uncooked
  • 1 tbsp garlic chopped
  • 2 tbsp sunflower oil (peanut or avocado can also work)
  • 1 tbsp soya sauce or tamari to taste
  • 1 tsp rice vinegar (or apple cider)
  • Salt, to taste
  • ½ black pepper coarsely crushed
  • ¼ - ½ cup carrots finely chopped
  • ¼ cup bell pepper, finely chopped
  • ¼ cup French beans (4 to 5 green beans), finely chopped
  • ¼ green onions finely chopped
  • ¼ cabbage, optional
  • ¾ cup mushrooms sliced, optional
  • 1 green chili slit, optional
  • ½ tsp sugar


  • Rinse the rice a few times until the water runs clear.
  • Let it soak for at least 10 minutes. Meanwhile, pour 4 to 5 cups of water into a large pot and bring it to a boil.
  • Once the water starts to boil, drain the rice and add it to the water.
  • Add 1 teaspoon oil to keep the rice from becoming sticky.
  • Cook the rice till it’s firm when bitten. Do not let the rice turn mushy.
  • Drain off the rice, let it cool completely, then fluff it up with a fork.
  • While the rice cools down, start chopping the vegetables and garlic. Set aside some green onions for garnish.
  • On the highest flame, heat a wok with oil and lightly fry the garlic. Around 30 to 40 seconds should be enough.
  • Add all the chopped vegetables and fry the mixture for 2 to 3 minutes. The veggies should be just half-cooked (crunchy and not soft).
  • Add the soy sauce and vinegar.
  • Add the optional ingredients.
  • Add the sugar to balance the flavors and preserve the bright colors of the veggies.
  • Immediately add the cooled rice, salt, and black pepper.
  • Fry the vegetable fried rice for 2 minutes.
  • Top with fresh green onions and serve.
