Vegetable Fried Rice - Using Coconut Milk


Vegetable Fried Rice

It is very easy to make this rice and tastes great.


Ingredients
2 cups Long Grained Rice (Basmati)
½ cup French beans, cut diagonally into thin strips
½ cup Cauliflower, chopped into small pieces
½ cup carrots, cut into long thin strips
½ cup capsicum, cut into long thin strips
1 cup spring onion whites, cut into long thin strips
1 teaspoon soya sauce
1 cup spring onion greens, chopped
3 Green Chillies, slit
a pinch Ajinomoto powder (optional)
1 cup Thick Coconut Milk
1 tablespoon oil
salt and white pepper to taste


Method
Mix coconut milk with water, so that the mixture is in ratio of 2:1 with rice. Add some salt and 1 teaspoon oil to the rice. Cook the rice until just done, and immediately spread on a plate to cool.
Heat oil in a wok and when hot, drop the onion in.

When the onion is translucent, start adding the vegetables. Put in the hardest vegetables first, followed by the lighter ones by turn, after about half a minute of stirring for eg., carrots will go in first, followed by cauliflower, beans and then capsicum. Add salt, white pepper and Ajinomotto.

Once the vegetables are half cooked, add the soy sauce.

Add the rice and stir so that the colour is well absorbed. Add more soy sauce if needed.

Add salt to taste, and serve hot.
