Chinese Fried Rice ( Quick and Easy)

After looking at my lunch box Ideas several people requested for the recipe of Chinese Fried Rice, until then I have not realized that I haven't posted a recipe for this quick and easy Fried Rice. Whenever there is some rice left from the dinner, with out a thought that ends up as Chinese Fried Rice in our lunch box the next day.


Ingredients:
Cooked White Rice -  2 Cups
(Frozen)Mixed Vegetables - 1 Cup
Fresh Broccoli Florets - 1 Cup
Onion - 1/2 medium
Green Chile - 2 or 3
Soy Sauce - 1 Tbsp
salt - 1 tsp
black pepper - 1 tsp
Hot Chili Sauce - 1 Tsp
Red Pepper Flakes - 1 tsp
Oil - 1 Tbsp
Spring Onions - 2 Tbsp



How to make It:
1. Heat the Wok or Kadai (take the wide one) and add oil to it
2. Once the Oil is hot add red pepper flakes followed by thinly sliced onions and green chile
3. Thaw the frozen mixed vegetables ( carrot, bean, pea, corn mix) in the microwave on high for 2 min.
4. Add the Mixed vegetables to the pan and add the soy sauce to the vegetables (saute for 2 min)
5. Add the Rice ( make sure there are no lumps in the rice and it is fluffy)
6. Add salt and black pepper to rice and mix well ( cook for 2 min)
7. Add the Hot Chile Sauce and Cook for 1 min
8. Mean while steam the broccoli in the microwave for 1 min ( not more than that), and add this to rice
9. Stir Everything well on High , taste and adjust seasonings accordingly, turn off the stove and garnish with spring onions.
10. Yummy Lunch box treat is ready in minutes, now sit back, relax and enjoy your morning coffee. :-)

Tips:
1. Stirring on High is the secret tip for the best fried rice
2. Some times if  i have color peppers, I replace the mixed veg with color peppers slices ( red, yellow, green bell peppers). Mixed Veg (pre cut) saves the cutting time in the morning though.
3. This rice usually comes perfect with left over rice. If you don't have left over rice, let the cooked rice cool until it is fluffy, you can keep in the refrigerator for 15 to 20 min to get that result.
4. Soy Sauce consistency differs based on some brands, if you think 1 Tbsp is not enough, add some more. you should get light brown color coated rice.

Take care until next time
