Chinese Fried Rice

Chinese fried rice is a colorful one which looks very charming, especially to the little ones.  This is one of the favourites of my lil champ. 


You will need...
Basmati rice - 2 cups
Bell Pepper (Red, Green, Yellow, Orange) - 1 each sliced thin
Carrots - 1 big or 2 medium cut into thin stripes
Spring onions - chopped (whites and greens seperated)
Mushrooms - 200 gms sliced
Cabbage - 100 gmscut into thin stripes
Celery - 1 stick chopped
Chicken - 1 cup cooked and shredded
Eggs - 6
Milk - 2-3 tbsp
Cocktail prawns - 200gms
White pepper powder - 1 tsp
Msg(Ajinomotto) - a pinch(optional) I did'nt use.
Vinegar - 1 tsp
Soya sauce - 1 tbsp
Chilli sauce - 1 tbsp
Ginger paste - 1 tbsp
Garlic paste - 1 tbsp
Salt - as needed
Sesame Oil


Wash and soak rice in water for 20-30 mts.  Cook with salt, few drops of oil and plenty of water until 3/4 done.  Drain and spread on a tray to prevent from getting cooked further. In a wok add oil, stir fry the veggies other than celery and spring onions in batches.  If all of them are stir fried together, there is a chance for them to get overcooked and loose the crispiness. Beat eggs in a bowl with milk and salt.  Scramble fry them in the same wok. Keep aside.  Add some more oil in the wok and add spring onion whites, ginger paste, garlic paste and stir fry for few minutes.  Now add prawns and fry until all the water disappears.  Add all the stir fried vegetables, celery and chicken. Stir fry for few minutes.  Add white pepper powder,msg, vinegar, soya sauce, chilli sauce and stir fry for a minute.  Finally add rice and spring onion greens.  Mix well. Check for salt and add if needed.  Serve hot with any chinese/cantonese accompaniments.

Have a nice weekend!!!
