Simple Vegetable Fried Rice / Brown Rice with Stir Fried Vegetables | Indian Rice Recipes

Vegetable Fried Rice is my ultimate go-to dish when I run out of ideas, have no mood to think or simply have to finish off its and bits of vegetables hanging out in the fridge. It is a family favorite too. Paired with a simple dhal tadka or a sabji it is a great meal altogether.
Ingredients:
Brown Basmati Rice - 1 cup
Water - 1-1/2 cups
Carrot - 1 - chopped
Red Bell Pepper - 1/2 - chopped
Green Bell Pepper - 1/2 - chopped
Asparagus - 4 spears - chopped
Zucchini - 1/2 - chopped
Spring Onions / Scallions - 2
Salt & Pepper - to taste
Sesame oil / Gingelly oil - 1 tbsp
Method:
Cook the brown basmati rice according to below instructions. When done fluff with fork and spread on a plate to cool completely. Heat oil in a wok in medium-high heat and add the spring onion whites. After 2 minutes, add the chopped asparagus. In 2-minute intervals add the carrots, zucchini, green bell peppers, red bell peppers one by one and saute continuously. Add the salt and pepper and immediately add the cooked cooled brown rice and mix well. Remove from heat, check for seasoning and mix in the spring onion greens. Serve hot with ketchup or any curry of your choice.
How to cook brown basmati rice in Pressure Cooker:
Wash and soak 1 cup of rice in water for 30 minutes. Drain the water and pressure cook with one and a half cups of water for 6 whistles. This is a rice-water ratio and number of whistles I got through trial-and error method. Other non-basmati brown rice may need different amount of water and cook time.
