Fried Rice Recipes - Vegetable Fried rice

Easy vegetable Rice Recipe

This is a simple one among fried rice recipes. It is a quick one too. If you already have plain rice ready(even leftover plain rice is ok), you can make this stir fried rice recipe in minutes.

This vegetable fried rice is healthy as you retain all the goodness of the vegetables by cooking them for a short time on high flame.

That is, you do not overcook them and lose the nutrients such as the vitamins. The vegetables taste great too. They are cooked inside but crunchy outside.

Once you know the fried rice recipe, you can make your own variations too. Add the vegetables you like or have in your pantry or omit the ones that you don't like or don't have.

You can make your own favorite variety of rice too. long grain or short grain rice, white or brown rice.

For this fried rice recipe, you can use a mixture of your favorite vegetables such as onions, beans, carrots, peas, capsicum, cabbage, cauliflower etc.

Cut all the vegetables in thin strips/fingers/juliennes. Cut them of the same size too.

The dish looks very inviting too with all those colorful vegetables. You do not need all the above mentioned vegetables every time. You can use 3-4 of them at a time.

I like to use cabbage, onions, carrots and capsicums and that is what I am using in the recipe below.

  • The cooked rice should not be very soft. Each grain should be separate.
  • Cool cooked rice before adding to the vegetable mix otherwise it will get mushy.
  • You can make it a spicy fried rice if you like by adding more pepper powder and red chili powder.
  • Add more vinegar or soya sauce if you prefer that.
