Vegetable fried rice recipe

by Jeyashri suresh

Vegetable Rice is a common dish in my home,which i make once a week,since my hubby likes it very much. But always make raitha for that. Very rarely i make cauliflower manchurian for this. Though we all like the manchurian, since it is deep fried we avoid making this often. After a long time i made both the vegetable rice and cauliflower manchurian. Here is the recipe of Baby Corn Manchurian .

Jeyashri y r we adding soya sauce, can we do it without that and without spring onions adding normal onions

admin July 3, 2013 - 1:26 pm

Both soy sauce and spring onions are used to add flavor to the rice. I recommend you to replace the spring onions with normal onions but soy sauce u try to add.

Sabitha July 23, 2013 - 1:47 am

Hello Jeyashri,

Thanks for posting the recipes. Could you specify which brand of soya sauce to use. In Singapore most of Soy sauce are rather too salty, I found.

admin July 26, 2013 - 1:20 pm

I generally buy the Fair price brand light soy sauce

Mega August 26, 2014 - 8:12 pm

jeyashri suresh September 3, 2014 - 2:17 am

You have to add after adding oil. I updated in the post too

Hi. Accidentally landed to your blog. Very nyc and easy recipes. I tried fried rice. Big hit.

Hema October 5, 2020 - 12:25 am

Lovely recipe. Tried it today and it tasted excellent. Thank you so much. But my fried rice was red in colour. Could it be because of the tomato sauce ? I didn't have to add any tomato sauce or chilli sauce while eating. So I presume I had added more quantity and hence the colour.

Jeyashri suresh October 6, 2020 - 7:17 am

Yes that could be the reason for the red color. More sauce
