Quick Fried Rice

This is what I usually do with my left-over rice. My husband likes food-to-be-eaten-by-spoon recipes at work. So I make this frequently when there is left over rice. Its quick, easy, healthy, tasty and filling. I use mixed frozen vegetables in this. The bag that I buy has a mix of carrots, beans, green peas and corn.


Preparation Time: 10-12 min
Cooking Time: 8-10 min
Serves: 2-3


1 cup mixed vegetables
2-3 cups left-over rice or cooked rice that is cooled completely
1 onion, sliced
1/2 tsp turmeric
1/2 tsp red chilli powder or 2-3 green chillies, slit
1 tblsp oil
salt to taste


  1. Saute onions in oil on medium heat till transluscent.
  2. Add turmeric and chilli. Fry for 30-40 sec.
  3. Add veggies and salt. Simmer and cook till soft - about 2-3 min if using frozen.
  4. Add cooked and cooled rice. Mix well.
