Veg Fried Rice

Veg Fried Rice is very common in our house. Simple and Fast. All you need to have in hands are some veggies like Carrot, Beans, Peas, Corn, Cabbage etc. And it is ready in a jiffy. Many a times I prepare this for my children's and hubby's lunch box.


Rice - 1 cup
Onion - 1 medium size (chopped)
Veggies of your choice - 1/2 cup ( Grated Carrot, Finely choped beans, boiled peas and corn, shredded cabbage, small cauliflower florets etc)
Green Chillies - 2 to 3 (slit into half)
Salt to taste
White Pepper Powder - 1/2 t.sp (optional)
Spring Onion Greens - a handful


Wash and cook the rice till it is 90 percent done. Add about 1 tb.sp of oil and some salt to the rice while cooking. Transfer it to another vessel and allow it to cool. Heat a fry pan, pour some oil in it. When the oil is hot toss in the onions and green chillies. When the onion becomes translucent add in the veggies and saute it till the veggies are almost done. Add salt while sauting. When the veggies are almost done add the white pepper powder and mix well. Then add the cooked rice and mix well. Cover and cook on low flame, stirring in between for about 2 to 3 minutes. In the end add the spring onion greens and mix well. Serve hot with Papad and  Raitas.

Here I have skipped green chillies and added Tobasco Sauce and hence the orange colour.
