Vegetable Fried Rice / Capsicum Fried Rice

This is an Indian version of the popular Chinese fried rice. I have used Basmati rice and used only a little oil. The original fried rice recipe usually requires a lot of oil. Serve this with "Chilli Vegetable Gravy".


1 cup raw Basmati rice
2 onions/spring onions finely chopped
2 cups finely chopped vegetable (beans, carrot, capsicum/bell pepper, cabbage) (you can also add only yellow, red and green capsicum/bell pepper as I have done here)
Salt and pepper to taste
2 tsp Oil


1. Boil 4 cups of water with salt and tsp of oil in the water. 

2. Add the rice and cook till rice is 90% cooked. 

3. Drain the water and keep the cooked rice aside.

4. Heat oil, add onions and fry till they turn translucent, add a bit of salt at this stage. Add other vegetables/capsicum and stir fry on high flame. 

5. Once the vegetables are glossy, add the rice salt, pepper and mix well.
