Veg Fried Rice

Most of the Sundays, I used to prepare Egg or Veg fried rice. It goes well with just a tomato ketchup also. It will be easy to make as well as, gives the satisfaction of a special meal on Sundays.
Last Sunday I was thinking to make something simple and thought of having some rest... But after seeing my G+ family's Sunday menu pictures, I was tempted and ended up making the Fried rice and gobi 65.




Here is the simple Recipe I follow, It is less spicy, you can add more pepper or a tea spoon of green chili sauce or even chopped green chilies while sauteing onions.


Ingredients:

basmati rice (cooked) - 2cups
Veggies - 2 cups (carrot,beans, green peas combined, carrot beans finely chopped)
Onion - 2 table spoon (finely chopped)
Garlic - 1 table spoon (finely chopped)
Spring Onion (White part) - 1 table spoon
Spring Onion  (green part) - 2 table spoon
soy sause - 1/2 tea spoon
Pepper powder - 1 tea spoon
salt - as per taste
Oil -4 to 5 Tea spoons


Preparation:

1. Soak Basmati rice for minimum of 30 mins, cook it fluffy, sprinkle a tea spoon of oil and keep aside.
2. In a Pan or Kadai, heat 3 tea spoons of oil, once heated, add the garlic, onion and spring onion white part.
3. Once the raw smell leaves, add finely chopped beans first and saute, after two minutes add the remaining vegetables and a pinch of salt then saute well.
4. Close the lid and simmer the flame, let the veggies cook well.
5. Once the veggies are cooked, add the cooked rice and mix gently.
6. When the veggies and rice are mixed, add the soy sauce and mix.
7. Adjust the salt accordingly. Then add pepper powder to rice and mix well.
8.Garnish with finely chopped Spring onions green and serve with tomato chili sauce or your favorite side dish.

I served with Gobi 65 and sauce.Normally If I make the same quantity, I used to have a little leftover for the dinner.. But this time, the serving dishes and the plates were like wiped:) The difference this time is adding the spring onions. I found spring onions after a long time in shop, so grabbed a bunch.... It made my meal such a flavorful one.
