How to make Mushroom Fried Rice Recipe
To begin making the Mushroom Fried Rice recipe, rinse the rice well and cook in plenty of water till it is cooked al dente or just cooked that it still has a bite to it; not overcooked. Each grain should be separate. Drain and keep aside to cool completely.
Heat oil in a large wok or kadai; add chopped onions, whites of green onions, ginger, garlic, green chilies and red chilies (cut up) and sauté for a few minutes till the onions turn soft, on high heat.
Stir in the chopped mushrooms and fry again till the mushrooms are well sautéed.
Tip in grated carrots and chopped bell pepper and fry again for a few seconds.
Stir in cooked and cooled rice, soy sauce, vinegar, 1/2 teaspoon of black pepper powder and salt to taste and mix well on high heat, stirring continuously till all the flavours have blended well and rice is heated through.
Garnish with chopped green onions and serve hot.
You can garnish with chopped coriander leaves or cilantro instead of green onions.
Soy sauce and other sauces added have salt in them, so adjust the salt added accordingly.
Feel free to add more vegetables of your choice or even tofu or paneer. Stir in roasted peanuts or cashews for additional crunch.
