All three of us love Fried rice and the aroma it has. After continuous trying, finally i was able to bring the hotel like taste and aroma. My daughter likes fried rice with the combination of tomato sauce a lot.
Beans, Carrot, cabbage, capsicum - cleaned and cut into thin and slightly lengthy pieces
Onion - cut into thin pieces
Basmati rice - cooked such that each grain is seperate
Wash and soak the rice in water for 5 mins before cooking. Pressure cook it(with little salt) such that each grain is seperate. Keep it aside. Now heat oil/ghee in a kadai and fry the onions till they turn golden brown in colour. Now add the vegetables one by one and fry them in the oil nicely. Sprinkle little salt over the veg. Simmer the flame and keep frying, till the veg are cooked nicely.Add pinch of ajinamoto to the mix.
Now add the rice and pepper powder and mix all of them well. Now add small amount of soya sauce and mix all of them remove from flame.
Serve hot with tomato sauce.
Note: Since we dont add water to cook the vegetables, this requires little more oil than what we use normally.
