Veg Fried Rice

Back with another street food from FOI. This time it’s an Indo-Chinese dish, street style veg fried rice. Along with pav bhaji this used to be my favourite dishes to order in canteens near my college. A platter of gobhi manchurian to share with friends, the perfect combo! This time I made paneer manchurian to serve with veg fried rice. It also tastes delicious with veggies in hot gravy sauce. I have posted a few pictures below from another time.
For me the hit of this dish, veggies of course but it is freshly pounded black pepper which adds the distinct taste. It brings out the flavour of all the veggies and the slightly burnt taste gives it an unique flavour.

It is quick to make too, boil rice on side, chop veggies. Drain water from cooked rice and set aside to cool. Quickly toss in veggies in a wok and stir fry. Mix rice, add all seasonings and there it is, veg fried rice. Try more Indo-Chinese recipes like gobhi manchurian, veg hakka noodles, veg momos etc. More street style recipes from FOI!
