Veg Fried Rice Recipe , How To Make Vegetable Fried Rice

veg fried rice
Veg fried rice recipe is an easy and quick Indo-Chinese  rice recipe, nothing fancy, but simple and can be made with the most available ingredients. It has lots n lots of vegetables in it and you can experiment with them too, like adding mushrooms, fresh peas etc.

Veg fried rice is one meal where I add vegetables when my kids are super fussy. Not to mention the use of left over plain basmati rice, I used to have some cooked white basmati rice as a standby in my fridge....as I can whip up a batch of fried rice in 10 minutes, sometimes for the school lunch or to bribe them....well, the possibilities are endless.

Celery is something which is not available in this part of the world; adding chopped celery enhances the taste and flavor and definitely gives it a hand on authentic Chinese flavor, so if you can grab a bunch of them, add them in and make it all Chinese.

Since, spring onions are available here, I love to use them and yes, it does give in a nice flavor.

Step by step vegetable fried rice recipe:
Gather the vegetables and cook 2 cups of rice in salted water, strain when al dente.

NOTES

  • Rice should be al dente (meaning; 3/4 cooked), there is no rule that only left over rice should be used. If using fresh rice make sure it is al dente.
  • While making this for my kids, I did not have french beans, so I omitted them. You can use a handful of it chopped along it with fresh peas, if available.
  • I used Ching's all in one sauce; you can also substitute with 1 tsp of oyester sauce.
  • I do not add ajinomoto or any other artificial flavorings and strongly advise against using it.
  • A word about oil; I added only 1.5 tbsp of oil to make this fried rice as I make it often for my kids and want it to be as healthy as possible with my everyday meals. You can add upto 3 tbsp oil for better taste and flavor.

Puff pastry recipe: Homemade puff pastry in 15 minutes, can you believe that??  Bakery style Puff pastry is so easy to make at home that you will never buy greasy bakery puffs. The best thing about this puff pastry recipe is that; it does not need any refrigeration (chilling the dough) or any other so called difficult method, you may see when you google for "puff pastry"

Easy puff pastry can be made with the most basic ingredients and in under 15 minutes.

Back in the 80's amma started making puffs at home; which my two brothers and myself used to enjoy a lot. She mostly used to make this for special occasions; like when a friend dropped in or when we long for something bakery style.

Fast-forward to 2014; my daughter, Nidhi loves puffs and I have been asking amma to teach me how to make and somehow things did not work out when I last visited her. Right now she is visiting us here in Calicut and I coaxed and buttered her to show me how to make puffs.

The first time she tau…

Vattayappam / Steamed Rice Cake / Kerala Style

Vattayappam is Kerala's own fermented SteamedRice Cake. One of the healthiest traditional tea time snack with almost no oil. It is popular in the Christian communities of Kerala, though not much popular in North Kerala/ Malabar.

 "Vatta" means "round" ......vattayappam is basically rice and coconut grinded together and fermented with yeast....it is very soft and pillowy.....a slightly sweet snack......these days, it has found its place in bakeries especially in Kochi and Kottayam...and when I got a request from an anonymous reader asking for vattayappam recipe...I thought of sharing the recipe...as it is very easy to make...and does not take much time to make. I usually make it as an after school snack as it is very healthy and filling for kids.
