Chilly Fried Rice with Peanuts & Veggies





I prepared this chilly fried rice with inspirations from Chinese, Thai and Schezwan cuisine. Though the title boasts of many ingredients, this is a simple preparation.....hope you will try and enjoy this!


the recipe

Long grain cooked rice – to serve 8

Chopped or julienned vegetables

Cabbage – ½ cup
Carrot – 1 or 2
Celery – 3 stalks
Spring onion bulb – 4
Capsicum – 1
Onion – 1

Ginger paste – 1 tbsp
Garlic paste – 1 tbsp
Chilly flakes – 2 tsp
Soya sauce – 3 tbsp
Tomato sauce – 1, 2 or 3 tbsp
Sugar – 2 tsp
Salt – to taste
Veg Oil – 3 – 4 tbsp
Vegetable stock or water – ½ cup
Peanuts, roasted & slightly crushed – 5 tbsp
Spring onion shoot chopped – 4 shoots

the method
Heat oil in a wok or wide pan. Add the vegetables and onion and stir well in high heat. The vegetables should remain crispy and partially cooked. Add the crushed peanuts (Put the peanuts in a grinder jar and grind the roasted peanuts for 2-3 seconds). Stir for a while and add the ginger garlic paste. Stir till the raw smell is gone. Add the chilly flakes. Add soya sauce and sugar and stir briskly for 10 seconds. Add adequate salt for the vegetables & rice. Make space in the middle of the pan and pour the vegetable stock. Add the cooked rice in one shot. Mix all the ingredients. Add the tomato sauce. Toss the rice well. Sprinkle the spring onion shoot. Serve hot with tomato sauce or a side dish. We had this with Prawn Ball Curry (recipe to be posted soon).
