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.

Things to remember, about ‘Tri Capsicum Chinese Fried Rice’:

  • The prep time mentioned above is just for chopping the veggies. Not for cooking the rice.
  • Get the Basmati Rice cooked and keep it ready. And for best fried rice, the cooked rice need to be completely cooled down.
  • Here is my detailed post about cooking perfect rice >> How to cook rice perfectly (Instant Pot, Stove top)
  • 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.
  • 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.

  • Get the Basmati Rice cooked and keep it ready. Here is my detailed post about cooking perfect rice >> How to cook rice perfectly (Instant Pot, Stove top)
  • If the rice just cooked, spread it on a plate for 15 mins, to make it cold & reduce the wetness. So that the fried rice wouldn’t turn sticky.
  • If you are using already cooked & cold rice, skip the above step.
Firstly, get the basmati rice cooked in a non-sticky manner. Keep aside. Chop the spring onions into tiny pieces set aside.

STOVE TOP METHOD COOKING:

Put a pan/vessel on stove top under medium flame, add the oil and let it heat. Add the chopped ginger, chopped garlic (optional) and ¾ th of the chopped spring onions.
Toss them for 30 sec and add the pieces of (all 3 colours) Capsicum/ Bell Peppers to the same pan.
Add salt (for whole of the fried rice) , and stir fry them for just 2-3 mins. Now, add the soy sauce, green chilli sauce, black peppercorn powder.

Tips:

  • 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.
  • Remember, not to overcook the onions and capsicum pieces. They are meant to be half cooked i.e have a bit of raw texture.
  • Adjust the salt and spice as per your taste.
  • This rice dish stays fresh upto a day at room temp. But being a make ahead rice recipe, this can be stored in the refrigerator and be warmed before serving.

Result:

  • The taste of this, Tri-capsicum Chinese fried rice, is simply superb.
  • We had it with tomato ketchup/sauce and my kids just ADORED it!!
