How to cook Basmati rice

  1. For cooking Basmati rice for veg fried rice, wash 1 cup of rice thoroughly under running water until you get clear water. The removal of starch from rice helps in getting separate grains after cooking. You can even make use of brown rice to make healthy fried rice.
  2. Transfer in a deep bowl and soak in enough water for 30 minutes.
  3. Drain with the help of a strainer and keep aside.
  4. Boil 4 cups of water in a deep non-stick pan.

  5. Add salt.
  6. Furthermore, add 1 tbsp of oil and mix well.
  7. Add the rice to the boiling water and mix well.
  8. Cook on a medium flame for 8 to 10 minutes or till the rice is 85% cooked, while stirring occasionally.
  9. Strain it using a strainer and let the water drain out. This will give you around 3 cups after cooking. Do not overcook the rice or else they will turn soft and mushy.
  10. Pour some cold water on the rice to stop further cooking. Let all the water from the rice drain out ensuring that the rice does not contain any moisture.

  11. Add the remaining 1 tbsp of oil. This helps in preventing the rice from sticking together.
  12. Toss the rice in it. Ensure each grain is coated well with oil.
  13. Spread the cooked rice on a flat surface or a big plate and allow it to cool for 1 to 2 hours.
  14. Cover the rice with another plate so, the grains don’t dry out.


For the Chinese fried rice

  1. For the Chinese vegetable fried rice, chop and keep all the vegetables ready. Ensure the vegetables are not cold (directly used from the refrigerator) as they let out moisture and easily turn soft.
  2. Heat 3 tbsp of oil in a deep-pan or wok / kadhai over medium-high flame. Select oil with a high smoke point preferably use sesame oil, vegetable oil or peanut oil for best results. Add the finely chopped green chillies, garlic and ginger. You can increase or decrease the quantity as per your preference.
  3. Furthermore, add the celery. This is the most important ingredient of Indo-Chinese recipes, there is no option or substitute for this.
  4. Add the spring onion whites. If you do not have spring onions, make use of red onions or white onions.
  5. Sauté on a high flame for 1 minute.
  6. Add the cabbage.
  7. Now, add the French beans.
  8. Add the carrots. You can even add mushrooms, baby corns, broccoli or bean sprouts.
  9. Finally, add the capsicum. To make the veg fried rice more colorful, you can even add bell peppers .
  10. Mix well and sauté on a high flame for 3 to 4 minutes, while stirring occasionally. Stir-fry the vegetables without overcooking them or else they will lose their crunch.
  11. Now add the rice. Ensure that cooked rice does not have any lumps in it and each grain is separated. You can even make use of leftover rice.
  12. Add the salt and soya sauce. For a spicier variant, add chilli sauce or schezuan sauce to the Chinese vegetable fried rice.
  13. Mix gently and sauté on a high flame for 2 minutes, while stirring occasionally. Do not stir the Chinese vegetable fried rice too much otherwise the grains may break.
  14. Add the pepper powder to the vegetable fried rice, mix well and cook on a high flame for 1 minute.
  15. Add the spring onion greens to the Chinese vegetable fried rice, mix well and cook on a high flame for 1 minute.
