If you ask my husband and me if we like chinese we will tell you no, but for the 2 years I was in India after marriage every other time we went out for dinner it would be chinese. Dont ask why and we actually enjoyed dinner. And now if I dont cook chinese for more than 2 weeks he will remind me we have not eaten chinese na for so long. But ask us and we still say chinese is not among our faviurie cusines. Chinese is fun and quick to make once you make someone cut the veggies for you, ok joking I love cutting vegetables so I enjoy cooking chinese. This is how I make fried rice, the sauces are something you can add how much you want depending on your taste.

1 cup cooled cooked rice ( Make sure not to over cook it)
1/4 cup capsicum, cut into small cubes
1/4 cup carrot, cut into very small cubes
1/4 cup beans, cut very small
2 tbsp cabbage, chopped very small
2 spring onions, chopped
1/2 tsp soya sauce
1/2 tsp vinegar
1.5 tbsp tomato ketchup
pepper to taste
salt to taste
1 tsp oil


  1. Heat 1 tsp oil in a pan.
  2. Add the capsicum, carrot and beans. Cook for 5 minutes. (This wont take long since the veggies are cut really small and we still need some crunch in them)
  3. Add the cabbage. Cook for another 2 minutes.
  4. Add 1/2 the spring onions. Add the sauces, salt and pepper. (Remember to add the salt in the end since the sauce have some salt too and the rice too will have salt)
  5. Turn of the heat.
  6. Pour over cooled rice and mix well.
  7. Adjust seasonings.
  8. Heat in microwave or on the stove top if needed.
  9. Garnish with the rest of the spring onions and serve.

You can have it with:
Gobi Manchurian
Sweet and Sour Baby Corn
Sweet and Sour Veggie Sausages
