Vegetable Fried Rice | Restaurant Style Fried Rice | Rice Recipe

Vegetable fried rice, an easy & quick to prepare Indo chinese rice recipe. It's one of the most famous rice recipes that you can find from star restaurants to road side shops in India.

If you have been reading my blog regularly, you might know that we are kind of people who likes typical south Indian meal for lunch rather than this kind of rice(now in 2021, our taste buds have been changed over the years and we  like this fried rice as equally as any South Indian meals ).But occasionally i would make them, paired with some manchurian, every time while i'm trying, i adjust the ingredients more or less to replicate the restaurant style fried rice.

After a few trials, this recipe became a keeper for a while.It tastes almost like restaurant ones and it doesn't have that dominating soy flavor(which i don't like),it's so mild yet very tasty. 
What vegetables can be added in this fried rice ?

Cabbage, carrot, beans, broccoli, mushroom are the most common vegetables that are used in the fried rice !

Can I add any protein in addition to these vegetables?
Yes, you can add any cooked meat ! For the vegetarian option, you can add paneer(Indian cottage cheese)/tofu, it would taste great with this fried rice.

How to get restaurant style white fried rice ?
The Color of the rice mainly depends on the soy sauce color. For white rice, try to use light soy sauce and also white pepper powder instead of black !

  • I have already added salt while cooking the rice, so while sauteing, just add salt for the veggies alone.
  • Saute the veggies in high flame to get that smoky flavor.
  • As we want little extra spice, i added green chili, but you can skip that.
  • Adjust the soy sauce as per your liking of that sauce.The amount i mentioned here gives mild flavor of soy sauce.
  • Use Sesame oil for great flavor. 
  • The veggies should be crunchy, so don't cook till it becomes soft.
  • I personally dont like the crunchy beans, so i skip it,but if you would like ,add some.
