Fried Rice - straight from the wok..

"Can I get some rice with curd and lemon pickles?" – that was me, during my pregnancy days. The only difference between me and a beggar in India was that we were 12000 miles apart !!!

I never understood why women in the movies went after mangoes and tamarind – for me it was rice that SOMEBODY ELSE HAD PREPARED (I couldn’t stand the smell of boiling rice). So my only options were white rice at an Indian restaurant or fried rice from a Thai restaurant or better, send Nirmal on a begging errand...he..he..he

Speaking of fried rice – there is probably a 100 different versions of this recipe. Some of my South Indian friends make a pulav with green beans and potato and call it fried rice!!! The Chinese have a version of it with their brown rice and looks like every Chinese restaurant has a different dialect of the original version. My local Chinese being the worst – he fries the rice, adds shredded chicken and some soy sauce and even before you have finished placing the order – the fried rice is on your table!!! It is the Chinese way of saying ‘we value your time’, I guess!!!

I personally prefer the Thai preparation – lots of vegetables and coconut milk to add a nice flavor. But being the FACTORY Manager that I am…coconut is a No-No, whenever I can avoid it. So what do you do ??? – you taste the Thai fried rice, remove the coconut milk from it and stamp a MADE-IN-INDIA seal on it.!


  • Rice - 1 1/2 - 2 cups.
  • Red & green bellpeppers - half each.
  • Grean beans - 10
  • Carrot- 1
  • Mashrooms - 10
  • Eggs - 3
  • Onion - 1/2
  • Spring onions - 4 stalks.
  • Ginger& garlic paste - 1 tsp
  • chicken broth - 1/2 cup.
  • Soy sauce- 2 tsp
  • Worcestershire sauce - 1 tsp
  • Vinegar - 1 tsp
  • salt & pepper -to taste.
  • Oil - 4 tbs


  • Cook the rice (I use basmathi rice ) and keep it aside. Chop bellpeppers , carrot and beans lengthwise into thin strips. cut the mushrooms into 1/2 inch thick slices .Otherwise the mushrooms will break apart when you saute them in oil.
  • Heat 2 tsp of oil in a wok and fry sliced onions. Add ginger & garlic paste and fry . Put sliced mushrooms, worcestershire sauce, salt and pepper and saute until the mushrooms are slightly brown. Keep this mixture aside.
  • Put 1 tsp of oil to the wok and add the beaten eggs , salt and pepper and scramble. Keep it aside.
  • Put the vegetables in the wok and add half a cup of chicken broth and cook in a high flame.By this processes the broth will evaporate quickly and the vegetables will cook and retain its color. Now add the remaining oil to the vegetables and fry.Add cooked rice along with salt and finelly chopped spring onions. Stir until each grain of rice is separated and covered with oil. Finally, add the soy sauce ,vinegar, scrambled eggs and mushrooms to this and mix well. Serve hot.


  • Add shredded chicken/shrimp( cook with salt and pepper ) to the vegetables while frying to make a non-vegetarian version.
  • If you are a vegeterian, omit the chicken broth ,eggs and worcestershire sauce to make a pure vegan version.
  • The key to a colorful fried rice is to use neatly chopped, different colored vegetables and cooking it in high flame.
  • You can add some bean sprouts /bamboo shoots to give a more professional touch.
  • If u don't have a wok,use a normal kadai (pan). Then, instead of frying the rice together, fry it in batches and put in a bowl and mix with the fried veggies.

Know what??? I too was eating curd rice for the first 5 mths of my pregnancy...not 'coz i was craving it, but 'coz that was the only thing I could keep down for atleast a little while. How's the little one doing? Thx for asking about my girl...she's fine...turned 9 mths old now. And you'd asked where Iam in Jacksonville....not too far from Orlando.

Hi this rg. Fried rice looks very colorful. We Indians add the freshly cooked rice to the fried rice preparation but I heard chinese and thai folks actually use a-day-old cooked rice(kept in the refrigerator)to add to the stir fried vegetables/meat/shrimp. Anyways, nice presentation Maneka!
