My Take On New Year Resolution is not to wait Until The First Day Of The New Year to Start Something Good....The Ultimate Goal is to Be Happy and do things rather than doing things and Expecting Happiness to Embrace us....."Happiness Is not a station You Arrive,but a Manner of Travelling"....
So On that Happy Note I start My First Post Of This whole New Year....My Today's Recipe is Veg Fried Rice....If I am Given a Chance to Choose Between Pulav and Fried Rice, I would definitely Opt the Later because of its versatility and Simplicity....This Recipe calls for very simple Ingredients even a hand full of vegetables can Fabricate The Whole Magic....One Obligatory Requirement for this Recipe is that the rice grains should be partially cooked and can be enjoyed with any veggies tossed with some spice's and sauce's...
1)1 cup cooked rice(preferably basmati rice)
2)1 cup vegetables(capsicum of any colour,cabbage,spring onion,onion)
3)1 Tbsp garlic and ginger chopped
4)2 Tbsp Soya ,white Vinegar,tomato and chilly sauces
5)1 Tbsp Vegetable or any cooking oil
6)Salt to taste
7)pinch of sugar
1)Take Oil in a Kadai or big Wok, Sautee ginger and garlic..
2)Then Sautee mixed vegetable(carrots, capsicum and onion, cabbage and onion)
3)Add salt as per the taste
4)Add Tomato ketchup, soya,white vinegar and Green chilly sauce(Each one table spoon)
5)Add a pinch of sugar and cooked rice.....Sautee on high flame for a minute or so...
6)Finally add spring onion and serve hot with any sauce of your choice.......
1)To make a perfect basmati rice,soak the rice for at least 20 minutes in a Luke warm water after thoroughly washing the rice...The idea here is to remove all the starch.(starch makes the rice sticky)
2)Add 2 cups of water for 1 cup rice wait until the water gets to boil,meanwhile add 1 tsp oil and 1 tsp salt...(on high flame)
3)After the water starts boiling close the lid and get 1 whistle.Cook for another 2 to 3 minutes on low flame....... Basmati rice is ready....
