Ingredients for Mixed Vegetable Fried Rice :

1 tsp Cumin seeds
1/2 cup chopped Beans
1/2 cup chopped Carrots
1/2 cup chopped Cabbage
3 chopped big Green chillies (Mirchi bajji chillies)
2 coriander powder
Salt: as per taste

To prepare Mixed Vegetable Fried Rice :

1. Boil the rice with a little salt and 1 tsp oil, till each grain is separate and almost cooked. Be careful not to overcook the rice. Drain excess water and allow it to cool completely. I cooked rice on the previous day and refrigerated it overnight. This really helps in making a good fried rice which is not sticky.
2. Heat 2 tbsp of oil in a pan and add cumin seeds, green chillies and saute for a wile.
3. Add Beans, Carrots, Cabbage, coriander powder and salt and stir fry for around 3-5 minutes till veggies cooked.
4. Add the cooked rice and mix gently. You can sprinkle 1/2 tsp pepper powder at the end.
5. Mixed Vegetable Fried Rice is ready to be served hot.

Tips / Notes:

·        Feel free to add any vegetables of your choice like Capsicum, Mushrooms, Baby Corns and so on.
·        U can fallow the same procedure to make Mixed Fried Rice by adding eggs and chicken sausages or Egg fried rice by just adding eggs.
