Mushroom Fried Rice

I have taken a big liking to variety rice recently. I love the fact that they are one pot meals that get ready in minutes and makes for a good and quick to pack lunch. So I experiment with different kinds of flavor for variety rice quite often.One such trail was this simple mushroom fried rice which turned out to be quite delicious. Nothing fancy about the method/ingredients used but once again a reminder that simple food/flavors tastes so awesome.

Mushroom Fried Rice


Ingredients

Serves - 2
Spice Level - Moderately Spicy
Prep Time - 15 min
Cook time - 15 min


Basmati Rice - 1 cup
Oil - 2 Tbsp
Cinnamon - 1 inch piece
Bay leaf - 1
Cloves - 2
Jeera - 1 tsp
Onion - 2 medium ,chopped finely
Ginger Garlic [GG] paste - 1 Tsp
Green chilli - 2 , slit length wise
Button Mushroom - 200 gm pack, cleaned and chopped into medium sized pieces
Garam Masala - 1/2 Tsp
Curry powder - 1/2 tsp
Turmeric - a pinch [optional]
Salt - as per need
Pepper powder - 1/2 Tsp [optional]
Coriander Leaves - handful, washed and chopped

How do you do it

Cook the rice in 1.5 cups of water with 2 Tsp salt for 12-15 minutes and immediately transfer to a plate. Spread the rice on the plate, and drizzle a few drops of oil and stir it lightly and cool it. The rice should not be mushy, cook it like you would do for biryanis.

Next, heat 2 Tbsp oil in  a kadai, add bay leaf, cinnamon and cloves , jeera and let it roast for a few seconds. Add the chopped onion and GG paste. Saute till onions are translucent. Add in the green chilli now and give it a stir and saute for a couple of more minutes. Add in the chopped mushrooms now and saute till they give a shiny look - should take 3-5 minutes. Add in the turmeric [if using] , garam masala ,curry powder  and  salt now and saute till the raw smell of the powder vanishes.Now lower the flame, add in the cooked rice and toss it gently to wrap well with the mushroom mix in the kadai. Also add in the coriander leaves now and wrap well until the rice is completely mixed well with the mushroom mix taking care not to mash up the rice.Check for seasoning , add more salt and pepper [optional] if you like to.

Serve with raita and chips.

Note

1.You can skip the turmeric if you want the rice to take on a brownish shade. Turmeric lends the yellow color to the rice. I intended not to use it , but out of habit added a pinch and it resulted in the yellow color of the rice. :)

2. We have already added salt while cooking the rice, so be cautious while adding salt later.
