Fried rice itself is a delectable rice dish with roughly cooked veggies might be considered as raw. As it is very mild in spice (or you can say as not spicy) it is equally enjoyed by adults and children.

There are many variations of fried rice but this is the veg recipe that I follow regularly. Its Chinese basically with the use of Soya sauce in it. This is one of the recipes I depend on to finish off any leftover rice or when I’m not in mood to do prolonged cooking.

Its a Vegan+ Gluten free. I used just the 3 coloured capsicum, but feel free to use any veggies that can also be eaten raw like carrot, peas too.Tomatoes aren’t preferred as it make the rice wet.

Note: This recipe is Gluten free only if you can use a GLUTEN-FREE SOY SAUCE, heard it that Soy Sauce which we normally use isn’t Gluten-free.

  • This recipe can be made with leftover rice or with freshly cooked rice.
  • If you are using freshly cooked rice, let it cool off completely (to room temperature)  before adding to the pan, this is to avoid stickiness of the rice grains.
  • Basmati rice suits best for this recipe, but you can make with any other rice variety.
  • Just use any cooking oil, but Olive Oil works best for this dish.

  • It stays fresh upto a day at room temp, but is a make ahead rice recipe, can be stored in the refrigerator and be warmed before serving.
