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
- 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
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.
