Mix vegetable fried rice

Thursday, September 11, 2008

I love looking and always looking for some inspirations to inspire me in my kitchen. I am kind of a non-veg and vegetarian meal person. Meaning, I can survive just by consuming vegetarian food (not too long though). I find it a challenge to always try and come up with something new and different to enhance our daily palette. Indian food and recipes has been adorning my kitchen for some time now. But me and Tarun are planning to change our diets by incorporating some Asian (Chinese influence) and Indian recipes. I am from Malaysia, a land of multi-colored society. We are blessed with the opportunity to learn and sample a vast variety of dishes from Chinese cuisine, to Thai to Indian and Indonesian palettes. Chinese cooking is by far my favorite in terms of dietary values and vegetarian recipes. So I came up with a recipe of mix vegetable fried rice, with some Chinese umph and Indian kick added to it. Let's begin cooking, shall we?

First, let me introduce you to the cast members:

1 Red bell pepper
2 sprigs scallions
1.5 cup mung bean sprouts
Handful of radishes
1 medium diced red onion
2 tbsp ginger paste
2.5 tbsp garlic paste
2 green chilies
2 tbsp lite soy sauce
2 tbsp salt
1/2 tsp turmeric powder
1 tbsp garam masala
1 tbsp cracked black pepper
2 tbsp of cooking oil
2 cups of cooked Basmati rice

Add cooking oil into a searing hot wok. Fry the onions till lightly brown, add turmeric and garam masala powder. Proceed to add ginger and garlic paste. Then add green chilies, red bell pepper, radishes, lite soy sauce and cracked black. Stir fry for a minute. Finally add rice, scallions, mung bean spouts and salt to taste. Mixed vege fried rice is ready in 10 minutes! Serve hot!

Go on, try the recipe and let me know how it turned out. Try adding or substituting varieties of vegetables such as carrots, green capsicum, green beans etc. Enjoy cooking!
