Fried Rice

This is a basic fried rice recipe which you can customize by adding veggies of your choice, scrambled egg, prawns, chicken/mutton etc. If you are adding chicken/mutton/prawns, cook them before adding to rice. I have chosen french beans, carrots, capsicum/bell pepper and scrambled eggs. The choice is yours...


For the rice
Rice – 2 cups
Butter – 2 tbsp
Lemon Juice – 2-3 tsp
Hot Water – 4 cups

Eggs - 3 scrambled
Chopped Onion – 1
Chopped Carrot – 1/2 cup
Chopped Beans –  1/2 cup
Capsicum cubed – 1/4 cup ( I used half capsicum)
Celery – 1 tbsp, chopped
Finely chopped Garlic – 1/2 tbsp
Finely chopped Ginger – 1/2 tbsp
Soya sauce – 2 tbsp
Green chilly sauce – 2 tbsp (adjust as per spice level of the sauce)
Butter – 2 tbsp
Pepper powder - 1/2 tsp to sprinkle (optional)

1. Heat 2 tbsp butter in a pan. Add rice & fry it for 5 minutes or till it starts cracking.
2. Add lemon juice, salt & hot water and cook till the rice is done.
3. Once the rice is cooked spread it on a clean towel or tray and let it cool.
4. Heat 2 tbsp of butter in a pan. Add onion, ginger & garlic.
5. When onions are soft, add carrot, beans, capsicum, celery and salt.Cover and cook till the veggies are done.
6. If you are adding cooked chicken, mutton or prawns add at this stage .
7. Add soya sauce & green chilly sauce and combine well.
