mushroom fried rice recipe

mushroom fried rice recipe – an indo chinese recipe of fried rice with mushrooms. easy to cook and too good to taste.

one of those quick stir fried rice dishes that i love to make, especially when i have fresh celery at home. i cannot stress enough the flavors that celery bring into a chinese dish and i always recommend to use them when making any indo chinese food at home.

if you do not have celery, then you can easily replace coriander/cilantro with celery. the flavors which coriander will impart will surely be different, still the rice would taste great.

mushroom fried rice recipe is simple and can be quick too if you have some leftover rice. the whole dish is stir fried at a high flame and thats what imparts a restaurant like flavor in this dish. a lot of handwork is required when making this recipe. best is to use a wok or a pan with handles as when the heat becomes too high, you just lift the pan from the fire and then again keep it back while stir frying the ingredients by shaking the pan. few more similar recipes on blog are veg fried rice, schezwan fried rice and paneer fried rice recipe.

another suggestion is to use a naturally fermented soy sauce, that imparts the typical fermented flavor & taste to the rice. i have used kikkoman soy sauce here.

this mushroom fried rice can be had plain or accompanied with indo chinese vegetable side dish like veg balls in hot garlic sauce, veg manchurian or sweet and sour vegetables.

      hi gavnisha. you can add fried paneer. just pan fry fry the cubes separately. toss the cubes in some salt and black pepper powder & then pan fry them. once you finish tossing the rice, then lastly add the paneer and stir again. you can accompany mushroom rice with a fresh tomato salad.

    Hi Dassana,

    Why do you cover the colander with a lid after the initial steam goes? I always leave it open.
