HEALTHY AND EASY FRIED RICE

If you had a choice between rice and roti -what would you go in for???,I would definitely go for rice!!, here I have made them nutritious and high-fibre simply by using brown rice instead of the polished white one and adding lots of vegetables.

The secret of making good fried rice in which each grain is separate is - always boil rice beforehand in plenty of water, drain excess water and spread out on kitchen towels to dry for few hours  or use a day-old leftover rice, this way the grains will be separate and you will get perfect fried rice.

                                Healthy and easy fried rice with- yogurt

Ingredients-

  • Boiled brown rice- 4 cups, spread out to dry for 2-3 hours
  • Fresh vegetables ,(carrots, beans, peas, cabbage, cauliflower, spring onions and mushrooms) chopped- 2 cups
  • Soy sauce- 1 tbsp.
  • Vinegar -1 tbsp
  • Ginger and garlic paste- 1 tsp
  • Ajinomoto- 1/4 tsp
  • Salt and black pepper to taste
  • 1/4 tsp sugar
  • Onion- 1 large chopped
  • Oil- 1 tbsp

Method-

Heat oil in a wok or kadhai and add the ginger and garlic paste, as well as the onion, saute, add the rest of the veggies and fry till semi cooked but still crunchy, add the rice and rest of the ingredients, toss around to mix well, serve hot.

I had these steaming hot with an unusual palate cooling accompaniment- yogurt.

Looks delicious and I am definitely very hungry. I always like to leave my rice in the fridge for some hours or overnight before making fried rice. It dries out the moisture and makes for better fried rice.

Hey Bindiya, I was tempted to buy brown rice once, n i did do so, but it was soooooooo hard to cook them that I very quickly passed them onto my mom to use. But your fried rice look really yummy
