  • Basmati rice 1.5 c washed thoroughly and soaked for 20 mins in lots of water.
  • Onion 1 largish chopped finely.
  • Mixed veggies 2 to 3 c chopped finely i used carrot, beans, snow peas and different color of bell peppers
  • Spring onion whites 2-3 tbsp
  • Spring onion greens 1 tbsp
  • White pepper powder 1 tbsp
  • Salt to taste i used 3 teaspoon approximately
  • Neutral flavored oil 2 tbsp
  • Celery stalks 2 tablespoon chopped finely. I didn't have them. So i used 1 tablespoon dried celery leaves.


  • Place the rice in a wide wok along with about 6 c of water and 2 teaspoon salt.
  • Cook rice till 90% done.
  • Drain the rice once done, spread on a plate and let cool.
  • Alternatively, you may use 4 c of cooked rice that is a day old for this recipe.
  • Once the rice cools down, heat the same wok with oil.
  • Add onions along with spring onion whites and cook till onions become soft.
  • Add the remaining veggies and saute on high flame for 2-3 mins. The objective is to retain the crunch of the veggies.
  • Once done, add salt and white pepper powder. Mix well.
  • Add celery and mix. Now add the cooked rice and gently mix.
  • Garnish with spring onion greens. Serve hot.
