300 grams Japanese rice cooked and allowed to cool
1 Carrot cubed into small pieces and par boiled
2 Bell peppers thinly sliced
1 Onion thinly sliced
1-2 Red or Green chilies slit
1 tsp Vinegar
Few spring onions finely chopped
3 tbsp Peas


1. Heat oil in a wok add onions and saute for about 2-3 minutes. Now add bell pepper and chilies stir fry for another 2-3 minutes.

2. Now add the cooked rice and stir well. I used Japanese rice you may use a rice of your choice.
Add the carrot, green peas and spring onion combine well.

3. Now sprinkle salt and pepper as required. Add the vinegar mix together until all the flavors are well blended. Stir quickly and uniformly to prevent burning.

You may include eggs or chicken or shrimp if you desire.

I used to cook it in the same way with a regular rice. Your fried rice looks colorful and appetizing.

Thanks for your comment about my arrowroot wafers! A question for you: I've seen other flours on your posts such as besan and maida - can besan be used for baking sweets like biscuits or cookies? And is maida very different from American all-purpose wheat flour? Thanks!

Dear Tangled noodle,

BESAN- is a south asian word for gluten-free flour made from chickpeas also known as gram flour.

It is used widely to make a lot of Indian sweets. I am not too sure if you can use it to bake cookies en biscuits.

MAIDA- is just Indian word for all-purpose flour, it is made from wheat but is bleached.

I hope I helped.

Fried rice looks different is japanese rice from regular indian rice in taste and texture?

Dear LG,

Japanese rice grains are very short and have a unique sticky property unlike Indian rice.

I hope I helped.
