Chinese Veg. Fried Rice

Chinese Cuisine is another must go for all of us in our family. We all love the dishes and tofu is our all time favorite. Chinese fried rice is the easiest to make. After staying in Malaysia for 8 years I have developed a taste for this cuisine. The authentic version is the best, but no wonder while I cook I try to add more spice to the dish and make it more Indo-Chinese. When we go for holidays to Malaysia our must do list will have a visit to the Chinese Chicken Rice shop, eating tofu fa from the road side van, maagi mee goreng from the mamak shop and lot more. General thumb rule for a Chinese rice is to add equal amount of rice and vegetables for a fried rice.

Cooking Chinese dishes are the easiest and it just needs very little time to cook. Only the chopping time will be more. You can make cauliflower Manchurian with this and enjoy a Chinese lunch.

Note: Soaking the rice is must, as it helps in getting the long grain. Cooking rice to the correct consistency is very important.

The quantity of all vegetables together and rice should be the same.

If using light soya sauce then add more amount and if using sweet soy sauce then no need to add the sugar at the end.

If adding dark soy sauce don’t add too much of it.

Instead of black pepper powder you can add white pepper powder.

Corn kernels can be either fresh or frozen. If using fresh just add it directly. If using frozen wash it with running cold water and then add it.

You can add capsicum and other vegetables of your choice.

No need to add ajino moto. Without that itself it tastes great.
