Wondering what to do with the leftover rice or feeling too lazy to make an elaborate rice dish?? Fear not. This is the simplest way to whip up something to put on the table. The recipe I am sharing with you is that of the Basic Fried Rice, a recipe given by Rhonda Parkinson . You can choose to just stick to this recipe or add more ingredients. This is another life saver recipe for me as it requires very less ingredients and very less time to make. What I do normally is put my washed rice into the cooker and put on the stove. While the rice is cooking, I get on with my chopping and by the time I am done with the preparation, the rice is cooked and ready to be mixed with the rest of the ingredients.

    Yesterday when I woke up I was too tired…and my pantry and fridge was almost empty. I tried this one.It was superb…simple and tasty. But, as always, I failed in cooking the basmathi rice. When I make, its always over cooked or under..Can you please post the water and rice proportion and the method. I have tried a lot of times but I always failed…

  2. Mareena Jerrish says:

    If cooking in a pressure cooker, for 1 cup rice take 1-1/4 cup water. I usually put the weight on when I put the cooker on stove. Switch off as soon a whistle comes. Open once the pressure is gone. Hope this helps 🙂

    Same here… My rice is never separated… Specially while making fried rice

  4. Mareena Jerrish says:

    Sonia..the best way is to lightly toast the rice before adding water. If using basmati rice, for every cup of rice, use 1-1/4 cup water and give one whistle. Wish u all success next time 🙂
