Vegetable Fried Rice Recipe | Veg fried rice | Chinese Fried Rice

As you know that the chinese meal is not complete without any rice dish (it can be a simple steamed rice). On side gravy dish is served.

In Indo-chinese restaurants, taste and spice level may vary from one to another. Many serves spicy veg fried rice, this spicy taste comes from the chilli sauce. I have seen many add red chili powder. But here I have made very less spicy. I have just added a touch of green chilli.

I always like milder version of  fried rice, so I can have it with spicy or chili-garlic flavored gravy on side.

This fried rice is easy to make if you have leftover rice handy. It is best to use a day old rice, as they are drier because stored in refrigerator and rice grains will stay separated after tossing them with veggies.

But here I have mentioned ‘how to cook rice’ and that method also gives each and every rice grain separated. So Fresh or old, both will work just fine.
