Mushroom fried rice | Indo Chinese fried Mushroom rice

Mushroom fried rice is a simple one-pot rice recipe, perfect for lunch or dinner and will be ready in 15 minutes. This is an Indo-Chinese rice recipe that uses Indian veggies, spices along with Chinese soya sauce. Stir-fried in a wok or large kadai, the cooked rice gets infused by the flavorful base sauce and mushrooms.

What is a bowl of fried rice?

Noodles and fried rice are the two main sides that come to mind with Chinese food. Fried rice is basically stir-fried cooked rice which is typically done in a large iron wok on high heat. The cooked rice is sautéed with crunchy veggies, meat or seafood and sauces.

Veg fried rice, Chicken Schezwan fried rice, Singapore fried rice, Prawn fried rice, and Egg fried rice are a few of my favorites in fried rice categories.

Typical fried rice ingredients:

Rice: Jasmine rice – Medium-long short-grain rice, floral and slightly sweet & sticky best choice for fried rice. For indo- Chinese versions, the best choices are long grain basmati or short-grain jeera rice. Both are flavorful in their unique ways.

Oil: High heat holders like sunflower oil, peanut oil and canola oil are good choices to make any Chinese recipe. Olive, coconut oils are definitely a no-no.

Veggies: Use lesser quantities, finely chopped vegetables. Carrots, peas, cabbage, onions, green onions and bell peppers are popular choices. Ginger and garlic give a nice Indian touch to fried rice. Celery is my favorite in fried rice and Manchurian. Toss them on high heat always. No water, no lid, no low temperature is the mantra.

Egg & meat: Beaten eggs and small shrimps or shredded chicken go well together in a bowl of fried rice. Check my Schezwan chicken fried rice recipe.

Spices and sauce: Soy sauce is a must for me(it is optional though)preferably light soy. Oyster sauce you can use if you have(i didn’t). Salt & pepper as usual.
