How To Make Eggless Vegetable Fried Rice

Hello Food Lovers,
            This vegetable fried rice is easy to prepare with basic ingredients and can be made with
any sauce and veggies you like. I have not used Ajinomoto (monosodium glutamate/MSG) to prepare it. And still, it tastes delicious.  This recipe of fried rice is mildly spicy, so kids friendly and goes well with tiffin box too. Fried rice made with basmati rice, vegetables and flavored with soy sauce, that's how I have made this Indian meal with a Chinese twist. This vegetarian recipe is served as the main course. You can accompany it with gravy Manchurian or raita.

Which rice I have used?

I have used basmati rice(long grain white rice). To make any type of Fried Rice, always use non-sticky rice and cool the cooked rice entirely before using in fried rice recipe. You can cook rice in advance and refrigerate it, that will work well too.

Which Sauce I have used?

I have used soy sauce, chili sauce, and sriracha, but you can also add Schezwan sauce instead of Sriracha and chili sauce. These all the sauces are high in sodium, so use them in moderation and do not add them often in your diet, it may cause health problems. Also try to avoid sauces (mainly soya sauce) which contains MSG, before buying check the ingredients.

Which Vegetables I have used?

I have used cabbage, green peas, spring onions, green pepper, and carrots. But you can also use French beans, paneer, cauliflower, mushrooms, snow peas according to your choice.
Fresh Veggies or Frozen Veggies? Always use fresh veggies as frying them adds crunchiness to the cooked rice and frozen vegetables let out moisture and turn soft, so try to avoid adding frozen vegetables.
