  • 3 cups mixed vegetables, chopped finely ((could be carrots, beans, cabbage, peas, cauliflower, capsicum, cabbage))
  • 11/2 tablespoons finely chopped ginger
  • 11/2 tablespoons finely chopped garlic
  • 2 cups rice
  • 3 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon vinegar
  • 3 tablespoons oil
  • Salt to taste


This dish is much more simpler to make than it is usually thought. Cook rice on a high flame and cut the vegetables small and you are ready in no time.


Step 1
Cook the rice until just done, and immediately spread on a plate to cool. A day old cooked rice is best for making fried rice
Step 2
Heat oil in a wok and when hot, drop the ginger and garlic in.
Step 3
When light brown, increase the heat and start adding the vegetables, stirring vigorously. Put in the hardest vegetables first, followed by the lighter ones by turn, after about half a minute of stirring; for eg., carrots will go in first, followed by cauliflower, beans and then capsicum.
Step 4
Add the rice and stir so that the colour is well absorbed. Add more soy sauce if needed.
Step 5
Add salt to taste, and serve hot.
