Chinese Veggie Fried Rice

chinese fried rice

My husband took me to a Chinese fast food in my place. There was very less options for vegetarians and I preferred vegetable fried rice. It tasted really good and I wanted to try it from then. Today I had to do something quick and easy for lunch and I tried this fried rice and it came out really well. My husband liked it and appreciated me. This is really good for health that it has a lot of vegetables in it.


  • Cold cooked rice – 4 cups
  • Any vegetables – 3 cups (options: carrot, frozen baby peas, Green onions, cabbage, bell pepper, broccoli, bean sprouts)
  • minced garlic – 1 tsp
  • Hot red pepper flakes – 1/2 tsp
  • Hot sauce – 1 tbsp (adjust to taste)
  • Soy sauce – 1 tbsp
  • Sesame oil – 2 tsp
  • Vegetable oil – 2 tsp
  • Salt to taste

Method of preparation:

  1. Take rice in a bowl and remove any lumps with your fingers
  2. Heat oil in a stir-fry pan, add chopped green onions and saute
  3. Add minced garlic and rice to the pan and fry for 2 mins
  4. Add hot sauce and soy sauce and combine well followed by the red pepper flakes
  5. Fry them for well and add the vegetables
  6. Keep on tossing till everything get mixed with each other and cooked not overcooked
  7. Vegetables should be half or 3/4 th cooked and fried
  8. Taste and add salt if required as soy sauce gives salty taste


🙂 Serve hot with chips/salad


  1. Happened to see ur blog thru ur comment on mine..thanks!nice recipe for the fried rice..i love it..

  2. WordPress swallowed up my comments the first time I wrote it, so please excuse me in case this seems like a repetition 🙂

    Firstly,thanks for the recipe, I’ve always wanted to make fried rice at home…My doubt is – you mentioned that the veggies need to be 3/4th cooked – do they need to be fried before adding to the rice?

    Also, perhaps you could give us a recipe for a side dish as well that can be eaten along with fried rice?

  3. Rice looks nice. Will try it some time.

  8. Hi Divya, Thanks for ur comments

    Hi apu, Thanks for ur comments. vegetables need to be added after rice and keep on frying them till they are 3/4th cooked. A good combination for this fried rice is chilli sauce. That is what is served in fast food also. Actually it has a great taste by itself.
