Its back to back from Brat’s kitchen! Well, when u make Gobi Manchurian, ur sure to have a rice that goes with it (or shud it b the other way :D) No m not claiming any credits to this as a Guru, tho i do make it almost the same way too! This is a typical fast-food style fried rice which is quite popular among us Chennai street food mongers, so yea this is kinda Indo-Chinese too! So here it is Chinese Fried Rice, by Brat himself…
Chinese Fried Rice Recipe
Basmati rice – 2 cups
Water – 4 cups
Onions – 2 medium sized (cut into thin slices)
Capsicum (Green Papper) – One medium sized (cut into thin slices)
Carrot/ Potatoes/Cabbage /Beans – a handful of each (cut into thin slices)
Green Peas / Cauliflower/Green Beans – 1/2 handful and optional
Vinegar – 1 tbsp
Green Chilli Sauce – 2 tbsp
Soy Sauce – 3 to 4 tbsp
Oil – 4 to 5 tbsp
Black Pepper and Salt to taste
Wash the rice and soak it in warm water ( I usually keep it in the ‘warm’ mode of the electric cooker) for at least 15 to 20 minutes.
In the meanwhile, add few tsps of oil in a kadai, add the onions and sauce them.
Add the capsicum, followed by the other vegetables and saute well.
Mix the rice after straining it well, and fry in more oil.
Now add the sauces, vinegar, salt and pepper to the mixture.
Mix in the water and cook well in the cooker.
Serve with tomato and chilli sauce!
Once the fried rice is cooked, you can add a little oil and stir and toss (when its still really hot) to make sure the rice is not sticky!
