Meanwhile, to make healthy fried rice:
Wash 1 cup rice. Boil 3 cups of water with 1 tsp. salt and add washed rice to it.
Boil rice for 10-12 minutes. You do not want to cook rice completely. I like to keep them Al Dente (slightly firm and not fully cooked) so that they complete cooking with the veggies. Drain all the water and let the rice rest.
While the rice cooks, you can prep and start sauteing veggies.
In a hot wok add 2 tbsps. oil. Add 1 tbsp minced ginger and 1 tbsp. minced garlic. Fry 1/2 cup finely chopped onions and 1/2 cup finely chopped bell pepper.
Add 1/4 cup finely chopped green beans and 1/4 cup finely chopped carrots. Fry for 4-5 minutes with 1 tsp. salt. Add 1/4 cup finely chopped cabbage and chopped onion greens.
(You could also add chopped mushrooms and baby corn to this recipe)
When veggies are partially cooked (I do not overcook them) add boiled rice.
Add 1 tbsp. vinegar and toss rice and veggies well. Cook for 4-5 minutes for flavors to blend well.
(sprinkle water of needed, and cover and cook)
Take a taste test for salt.
I do not add soy sauce to the rice while cooking. Snehanshu likes to pour a bit while serving.
Simple fried rice ready to be served with some soy sauce.
