Homemade Chinese Veg Fried Rice for a Quick Dinner!











Whip up a delicious, quick, and easy Chinese Veg Fried Rice in your kitchen. This vibrant dish is packed with crunchy vegetables and flavorful sauces, making it a perfect weeknight dinner.


Step 1: Prepare Rice

Start by cooking the basmati rice. Take 1 cup of rice and wash it thoroughly. In a pressure cooker, add the washed rice along with 2 1/2 cups of water and a teaspoon of oil. This little addition of oil helps in keeping the rice grains separate and fluffy. Wait for one whistle and then take the cooker off the heat. Let it cool down and use a fork to fluff the rice up. This ensures your fried rice doesn't turn soggy or stick together.
Pro Tip: Fluffing the rice helps keep grains separated.

Step 2: Stir-Fry Veggies

Get those veggies ready and sizzling. Heat a large wok on high heat and pour in 2 tablespoons of oil. Toss in minced green chilies and garlic first to let their aromas infuse the oil. Quickly add in the chopped spring onions. These initial steps are crucial for flavor. Then, throw in the longer-cooking veggies like bell peppers and stir fiercely on high heat. You want them to cook but still retain that delightful crunch.
Pro Tip: High heat keeps the veggies crunchy.

Step 3: Combine and Season

Now for the fun part. Add the precooked corn kernels and any other vegetables you have chosen. Pour the cold, fluffed rice into the wok and gently mix it with the vegetables. This is the moment to season your dish. Drizzle in the soy sauce, green chili sauce, sprinkle the red pepper flakes, white pepper, and salt. A final drizzle of sesame oil ties all these flavors together beautifully. Stir everything well but gently, ensuring the rice gets fully coated with all the seasonings and sauce.
Pro Tip: Don't mush the rice; gently fold it in.

Step 4: Final Touch and Serve

Just before you're ready to serve, scatter the greens of your spring onions over the hot fried rice. This last-minute addition ensures they retain their fresh flavor and crisp texture, adding a pop of color and refreshing burst with every bite. Immediately serve the fried rice while it's still hot and savor the delicious blend of flavors and textures.
Pro Tip: Spring onion greens add freshness.
