Sprouts Fried Rice Recipe
Sprouts Fried Rice, makes a quick one pot meal, not much of chopping like the other fried rice recipes...easy to cook good to eat what more do you need?! I saw this recipe from a cookbook and have tried it once a year back but I as not pleased with the taste, guess I flopped it so was hesitant to try again.But now after trying quite a handful of fried rice recipes I was confident enough so tried this again now and this time it came out absolutely yummy that even the little one loved it.

Serve it along with gobi manchurian or baby corn manchurian.

Sprouts Fried Rice Recipe

My Notes:

  • I reduced all the veggies as I wanted the sprouts flavour more.But don't skip spring onions as it gives a good amount of chinese flavour to the fried rice.
  • You can add 2 tbsp onion while sauteing the veggies.
  • I used little water only to cook sprouts and used the remaining water while adding sprouts.
  • Use freshly ground pepper for a great flavour.
  • Dont overcook sprouts, it should be crunchy enough to bite.
  • Sauteing the veggies in high flame gives a nice smoky flavour and also retains its crunchiness without the raw smell.
  • I soaked basmati rice for 15 mins then pressure cooked for 1:1.5 ratio(rice:water) for 3 whistles in medium low flame.
  • I dont use ajino motto, but if you prefer you can add a pinch of it at the final stage.
  • Make sure to fluff the rice and spread it with little olive oil to make the grains separate.Allow it to rest atleast for 30mins.
