Brown Basmati Fried Rice

Reading about Brown Basmati Rice got me curious; and had my friend Lakshmi send me some. The event at Siri's blog Pavani's post got me excited and I finally got down to making it.My son has been asking me to cook some non-vegetarian dish for lunch; I hardly cook any. Her recipe was easy and sounded do-able. Only thing i did in my over enthusiasm was to boil the egg, and...
There was only one at home. So, it was Veg Fried Rice.
The nutty texture of the rice is very similar to our Kavuniarisi, a sweet dish from Chettinad. The Fried Rice was colourful and attractive.
Brown Basmati - 1 cup
Carrots - 1/2 cup, chopped
Capsicum - 1/2 cup, chopped
Cabbage - 3/4 cup, chopped
Peas - 1/2 cup
Onion - 1/4 cup, chopped
Green Chillies - 5, slit
Ginger-Garlic Paste - 1 tsp
Oil - 3 Tbsp
Red Chilli Sauce - 1 tsp
Soya Sauce - 1 tsp
Salt - 1 1/2 tsp (to taste)

Wash and soak Basmati Rice for 30 minutes.

Cook in plenty of water until cooked, but firm. 

Finely chop the vegetables.

 Drain and cool the rice.
Heat oil and saute the chillies, ginger-garlic and onions. When onions turn pink, add vegetables and chilli powder. Saute over high flame for 2 minutes. Sprinkle water and simmer cook for 2 - 3 minutes until vegetables are cooked.

Mix in cooled rice. Stir fry for 2 minutes. Serve Hot.
