Chinese Fried Rice

There are days, when you feel very low. Lot of things, happen around you, which you do not approve but sometimes you do not have options. And have to go through the flow of life... Well, it was a real bad day for me. And I didn't feel like cooking.. So, thought of making something real quick.

It itself is a complete meal. And goes perfectly in Lunch Box.

So, here presenting you Chinese Fried Rice.. When I was in Anaheim, we went for our daughter's Belle Dance Class. While coming back, it got late, and we decided to go to the nearest restaurant. And we landed, to this Chinese restaurant. It was very clean, and decor was very beautiful. Ordered Fried Rice, as it was my Kiddo's Choice... But, I am glad I did. It was too yummy. I tried recreating same fried rice. It took me about 4 attempts, to get to the same taste...

Here, presenting you the same fried rice, which you can make ready in 10-15 minutes.

Ingredients -

Vegetables(Orange pepper, Yellow Pepper, peas, corn, carrots) - 2 cup (chopped)
Spinach - 2 cup (chopped)
Onion - 1 (chopped)
Paneer/ Tofu - 4-5 big pieces
White Vinegar - 2 tbps
Dark Soya Sauce - 1 tbsp
Red Chilli flakes - 1 tbsp
Cumin Seeds - 1 tsp
Salt to taste
White Rice - 1 1/2 cups
Cooking Oil - 2tbsp
Ghee - 1 tbsp

Directions - 

  1. Boil Rice in a vessel, and drain the water. Put the boiled rice in a strainer, and run in a cold water for about 2 minutes.
  2. In another pan, add Cooking oil. When heated, add cumin seeds (zeera) to crackle.

  • Add chopped onions, and fry for few seconds, and add carrot in it, and fry till onions are golden brown.

  • In another open pan or Tawa, with little oil, roast pieces of Paneer/Tofu.

  • Add all the veggies, and stir fry on high flame for about 5 minutes.

  • Add boiled rice, and salt to this veggie mixture.

  • Close the flame.
  • Add Soya Sauce and White Vinegar to this mixture, and Saute.

  • Cut Paneer/Tofu, in your desired shape, and mix it to the rice mixture.

  • At this point, I added Ghee and Red Chilli flakes and little bit of Red Chilli Powder, to increase the spiciness of rice.
  • Can be enjoyed like that, or with Boondi Raita.
