Burnt Garlic Fried Rice.

Indian style Veg Burnt Garlic Fried Rice Recipe.

Summer vacation has started for the children here and it has been crazy. On the brighter side, I don’t need to get up early in the morning to rush for school. I love to sleep late in the mornings. I was never a morning person and never will be. I get to enjoy another month of happy morning sleep. My son loves fried rice. And I love Garlic. Garlic makes everything good. This recipe for Burnt Garlic Fried Rice is such a hit in our house. Its so tasty and so good. Here is how we do it at home.

Getting the rice to the correct consistency is very important for fried rice. You do not want the rice to be mushy for Burnt Garlic Fried Rice. I have a few tricks for getting fluffy rice for Burnt Garlic Fried Rice every time. I use Basmati rice for the fried rice. Soak the rice in cold water for 20 minutes. You can cook the rice in a rice cooker or a pressure cooker.Β  I cook the rice in the pressure cooker. For every cup of rice, I use 1 and 1/2 cups of water. Salt the water and bring it to a boil. Adding salt at this stage ensures that the rice is properly seasoned.

Add in the soaked and drained rice to the boiling water. Cover the pressure cooker with a lid and let it cook for exactly 2 whistles. Remove from heat and wait for the pressure from the cooker to release naturally.

Once the pressure has released naturally, open the lid and gently fluff up the rice with a fork and let it cool under a fan completely. The rice is done! Yay!!!!

Now the veggies for the Burnt Garlic Fried Rice. I use Cabbages, Carrots and Beans. Chop them very finely. I use a lot of cabbage as it tastes so good with the rice. I always use in the following ratio. 1 part carrot, 1 part beans and 2 parts cabbage.

    Thank you for the awesome recipe. We made it for dinner and my husband and I enjoyed it. To be honest my husband who was the first one to start cooking with your recipes and your blog is his go-to for a lot of dishes. So, thank you for the great blog.

    One thing I always have trouble with is finding something to go with fried rice. Any suggestions?

    Can we use same measurement to cook Basmathi rice of any brand? I always see every brand they give a different measurement in the cover and never got the rice cooked right with that. It comes always mushy or little uncooked ?

      Secret is in the soaking of the rice for sometime. Yup the measurement of rice and water works for all kinds of basmati rice.

      Its a sweet delicate vinegar thats a by product of rice wine. Just like apple cider vinegar, balsamic vinegar etc…. Easily available in shops and used extensively in chinese cooking.
