Video: Curry fried rice recipe - a fusion of Indian and Thai cuisine

 Here is a delectable fried rice that we usually find in Thai restaurants. This recipe is vegetarian. You may add cooked meat and egg to this for variation. You may add as little or as many crunchy veggies as you like.

This recipe serves 6


4 Tbsp oil
2 green chilies, finely chopped
1 cup red onions, thinly sliced
4 cups mixed veggies(beans, carrot, peas, cabbage), chopped
4 cups cooked rice, cold, preferably a day old
1-2 tsp curry powder
1/2 tsp turmeric  powder
1 tsp ginger garlic paste ( I usually make a paste of ginger, garlic and turmeric together)
2 Tbsp dark soy sauce
1 tsp white pepper powder
1 tsp salt

Fried rice needs to be cooked on relatively high heat, so have all your ingredients prepped and assembled by the stove before you start.

Heat a wok on medium high heat.

Add oil, when it begins to smoke, add green chilies, followed by onions.

Saute for a minute.

Add in the veggies and saute for 5-7 minutes. Half way through, sprinkle a few teaspoons of water and a pinch of salt. This will keep the veggies crunchy and colorful.

Make a well in the center and add all the powders and soy sauce, stir well until aromatic and mix it all in with the veggies.

Saute on high for just a minute and add rice. Work your hands constantly, combine well. Turn off the heat, Serve hot, Enjoy!
