Fried Rice


Basmati Rice - 2 cups
Cooked vegetables - 1 cup (carrot, peas, beans)
Eggs - 2
MSG(Ajinomoto) - 1 tsp
Soy sauce - 2 tsp
Onion chopped - 1/2 cup
Spring Onion
Pepper powder - 1 tsp
Salt as required
Oil - tbsp


Soak the basmati rice in water for 45 mins. If you don't soak the rice, the fried rice doesn't come out good. Boil water in a bowl sufficient enough to cook 2 cups of rice. Add the correct amount of salt (taste the water after adding salt, it has to be little salty). When the water boils add 2 tsps of oil and add the soaked rice without water. Cook the rice till its 90% done then drain the water and spread the rice on a plate.

Next pour oil in a non stick saucepan. When the oil heats up add the chopped onion and saute it for few minutes. Beat the eggs in a bowl and pour it on top of the onion and keep mixing. When the egg is cooked add pepper powder, MSG, soy sauce and mix. Now add the cooked vegetables (can be cooked in a microwave for 3 minutes) and keep mixing. Add little salt for the vegetables and egg (remember rice was cooked with salt in it). Last add the rice and keep mixing. Finally garnish with the spring onions. Enjoy!!!!!
