Service For: 4 People
Cooking Time: 20 minutes

Cooking Instructions:


Measure the rice in a cup. For 1 cup of rice, take 2 cups of water.

For Basmati Rice, wash it once and soak in the measured cup of water itself for 10 minutes and then pressure cook it for not more than 2 whistles in high flame. For raw rice, was the rice well and do not soak it. Add measured cups of water and rice in the pressure cooker, and once the water starts to boil ell, stir it gently and simmer the flame and close the lid and let it cook for 10 minutes in simmer flame. Once the rice is cooked, let it cool completely for about 10 to 15 minutes in a large plate.



Fried Rice Using Basmathi Rice (An old image from my draft)

In the meantime, you chop all the vegetables finely into small pieces. It should be chopped as finely as possible.

Heat 3tbsp of oil in a deep pan and add chopped onion, beans, carrot and cabbage and keep frying it in simmer flame. Meanwhile add a little of salt  to vegetables. Keep frying it until the vegetables are well cooked. Now add spring onion and bell peppers to it and fry for a minute. Now add cooked rice, salt for rice and pepper powder to the pan and mix the rice well with cooked vegetables. Slowly stir it with a wooden spatula or any other blunt spatulas for 2 to 4 minutes. Do not use any sharp spatulas since the rice will be broken to pieces. Transfer the dish to a serving bowl.
