First cook the basmati rice(add salt while cooking the rice) and let it cool completely. In the mean time,chop all the veggies(capsicum,cabbage,beans & carrot) into thin strips,finely minced the garlic & then slice the mushroom & onions and keep it ready.Heat the kadai with oil and then add the garlic.Saute the garlic till it becomes fragrant and then add the onions & saute it for 2 mins.Then add all the veggies except mushroom and saute in the oil for 1 min.Then add the mushroom & salt(enough for veggies alone)and saute till all the veggies are cooked.Add soy sauce, mix well into the veggies,then add the cooked rice and give a good mix gently.Finally add pepper powder and stir gently & switch off the flame.While serving, sprinkle some green onions(forgot to add 😟). That's it, Tasty and easy Mushroom Fried Rice is ready.
  • 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.
  • 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. 
  • You can use Olive oil too instead of sesame oil
  • The veggies should be crunchy,so don't cook till it becomes soft.
  • I like to add more veggies in my fried rice, but you can add more or less of veggies as per your liking.
