Vegetable Fried Rice - Chinese Style Veg Fried Rice

Today's recipe is vegetable fried rice - chinese style veg fried rice. Now a days almost everyone love chinese recipes like fried rice, manchurians, noodles, spring rolls etc., and i am also big fan of all these as you all. The recipe which i am sharing one of big hit at home. I love fried rice prepared using basmati rice, because of its aroma and taste. We can prepare this veg fried rice with regular sona masoori rice in 5  to 10 minutes, if rice is cooked readily. And we can also prepare this with left over rice too, your kids surely love to have it when you serve this at evening times when they come from school.  Today i used carrot, beans and spring onion greens(home grown) to prepare this, you can add different color capsicum, mushroom and cabbage as per your wish and availability. Generally for street style and Indo Chinese version veg fried rice we add green and red chilli sauces and tomato ketchups. For Chinese authentic Fried rice we use only soya sauce, the spicy taste is from pepper and green chillies we used. Will post street style veg fried rice soon..

** Instead of basmati rice you can prepare it with regular rice.

** You can also prepare it with left over rice.

** You can also add other veggies like cabbage, different colors of capsicum , mushrooms, green peas as per your availability. 

** Do not overcook vegetables, it must be crunchy then only fried rice tastes yummy.

** For Chinese authentic Fried rice we use only soya sauce, the spicy taste is from pepper and green chillies we used. If you want more spicy you can add red chilli paste or sauce as per your taste.

** Adjust spices quantity according to your taste.

** Cook basmati rice perfectly then only you will get perfect fried rice.

** I like fried rice bit spicy so i added some red chilli paste you can add red or green chilli sauces to make it more spicy.
