This classic Veg Fried Rice recipe is made with a hearty mix of fresh vegetables, green onions, seasonings and spices for an incredibly flavorful fried rice dish. Hands-down this is one of our favorite Chinese-inspired recipes. Not only is Vegetable Fried Rice amazingly easy to make from scratch, it’s a naturally vegan dish that’s as good for you as it is delicious to eat. You can even tweak veg fried rice to be gluten-free simply by omitting soy sauce or using tamari.

More on Veg Fried Rice
And although Chinese fried rice is a healthy option, it is loaded with lots of exciting flavors. Salty, umami, and savory soy sauce is balanced with spiced star anise, and raw scallions add a great pop of freshness you’ll love.
Otherwise, I’ve kept the ingredients list rather basic to allow each element to shine – the veggies really are the star here!
Fried rice with mixed veggies can be enjoyed by itself for a satisfying lunch, but it does go great with rich, saucy main dishes.
This recipe rivals even the best take out options, and I’m sure you will enjoy making it often as part of your Indo-Chinese meals.
Stir-frying at high heat in a cast-iron skillet or wok imparts a bit of smoky flavor and aroma. Though a stovetop in your home kitchen, cannot compete with the heat and temperature of the stovetops in Chinese restaurants, you can still make a great homemade fried rice.
I do not add Ajinomoto, but you can include it if you are comfortable with it. The umami, smoky flavors in my fried rice recipe come from stir-frying at high heat and adding mushrooms, toasted sesame oil to the dish.
Generally in restaurants, soy sauce is not added to fried rice, but I like to add for an umami flavor. Feel free to skip soy sauce if you do not prefer it.
How to make Veg Fried Rice
Prep and Cook Rice
1. A great vegetable fried rice recipe begins with well-cooked white rice. To do so, first, soak 1 cup of basmati rice (190 to 200 grams) in water for 30 mins. Then drain and set rice aside.
Tip: You can opt for a good quality aged long-grained rice if you do not have Basmati rice. Jasmine rice will also work in a pinch.
2. In a large pot add 4 to 4.5 cups of water, ½ teaspoon salt, and 2 to 3 drops of toasted sesame oil (or any cooking oil), and set over high heat on the stovetop.
3. Let the water reach a full boil.
4. Add the soaked and drained basmati rice.
5. Simmer the rice uncovered on medium to medium-high heat.
6. Cook rice until al dente, or just about cooked. It’s important that you do not overcook rice during this step in order to make the best Chinese fried rice dish.
Overcooking rice or even cooking them completely, will break the rice grains while stir-frying.
7. Quickly strain rice in a colander, and let it cool completely at room temperature. Refrigerating rice for 30 minutes also helps. Simply cover cooked rice and refrigerate.
8. You can also rinse the rice with water so that the rice stops cooking. Use your hands to gently stir the cooked rice grains around while rinsing to ensure that every grain is cooled. Then drain thoroughly.
9. Cover cooked rice and set aside to cool.
10. While rice is cooling, finely chop the veggies. Because french beans tend to be tougher than the other mixed vegetables, I recommend chopping them very finely.
You also have the option to blanch them first before adding, or you can begin cooking them in this recipe before the rest of the vegetables are added.
For my favorite version of fried rice recipe you’ll need ¼ cup of each of the following ingredients, finely chopped:
- spring white onions (scallions) (not in the image below)
- french beans
- capsicum (bell peppers, your choice of color – green, red or yellow)
Plus about 1 cup of chopped button mushrooms for great earthy, umami flavor.
I also like to include 1 tablespoon of finely chopped celery for the most authentic Chinese-inspired dish. Include ¼ to ½ cup of chopped cabbage if you have them.
Stir Fry Veggies
11. Now it’s time to stir-fry the vegetables. Start by heating 3 tablespoons of preferred cooking oil in a wok or a deep skillet. Add 1 whole star anise and fry for a few seconds, until the oil becomes fragrant.
If you do not have star anise, simply skip adding it and move to step 12.
Tip: Use a good, trusted, heavy pan, skillet, or wok for stir-frying so that the tender fresh veggies do not get stuck or burn when frying at medium to high heat. Use oil having neutral taste and flavors.
12. Then add 1 teaspoon of finely chopped garlic, and ½ teaspoon finely chopped ginger. Cook for only a moment as you don’t want to brown or burn the garlic.
13. Add the chopped spring onions, and sauté for a minute or two on medium-low to medium heat.
14. Then add the finely chopped french beans – or, add these before the onions if you want a softer bean texture.
15. Continue to stir-fry both the onions and french beans for 2 to 3 minutes over medium to medium-high heat.
16. Now add the remaining finely chopped veggies, including mushrooms and celery. Increase the heat to high to thoroughly cook all of the ingredients.
17. Continuously toss and stir while frying so that the veggies are uniformly cooked and do not get burnt – for about 4 to 6 minutes.
You want the vegetables to be cooked and fried but still retain some great crunch.
18. Once the veggies have cooked, add 1 tablespoon of soy sauce. Stir and mix well.
Tip: You can add less (1 to 2 teaspoons) or more (about 2 to 3 tablespoons) soy sauce if you prefer that. I recommend going for naturally brewed soy sauce or tamari.
Note: If you do not like or prefer soy sauce, then omit it adding to the dish.
19. Taste the dish, and then add ½ a teaspoon of ground black pepper and as much salt as you like.
The Chinese fried rice will already be slightly salty because of the soy sauce, so not much additional salt should be needed.
20. Mix well to combine the flavors.
Make Veg Fried Rice
21. You are now ready to put everything together to make the veg fried rice. To the wok or skillet of veggies add the cooked and cooled rice – 1 cup or so at a time.
22. Reduce the heat to medium or medium-high. Use a spoon or spatula to gently fold cooked rice into the mixed vegetables.
23. With the heat still on medium to medium-high, continue to gently mix and fry the vegetables with rice for a couple of minutes.
24. You now have the option to stir in 1 tablespoon of rice wine or rice vinegar (or other mild vinegar), if you like. This adds a terrific note of sourness to the fried rice that isn’t necessary but is quite lovely.
25. Lastly, add more fresh chopped spring onions. You can either sprinkle on top as a garnish or mix into the fried rice to incorporate.
26. Serve Veg Fried Rice hot by itself for a light yet hearty meal, or enjoy it as a side dish along with your other favorite Chinese recipes.
How long can fried rice stay in fridge?
It stays good for about a day in the fridge. But I would recommend it to be eaten as soon as you make it – a few days old rice is not good for health.
How to reheat vegetable fried rice?
I usually steam them in my Instant-pot for 5 minutes. Sometimes I also stir-fry them in a skillet sprinkling a few splashes of water, so that the rice grains do not dry out.
What goes with veg fried rice?
Though fried rice tastes great on its own, listed below are some sides that pair greatly with vegetable fried rice (these are also my favorites).
Indo Chinese Recipes
Indo Chinese Recipes
Indo Chinese Recipes
- Cooking rice: Don’t overcook the rice. When first boiling the rice you want to cook the grains so that they’re al dente. Be sure to always drain and completely cool cooked rice before adding it to the stir fry. Wet and/or hot rice will not stir-fry properly, and will wind up soggy in your veg fried rice.
- Protein: For protein, include tofu, seitan, tempeh or for a vegetarian option, add paneer
- Veggies: Use your favorite veggies. I like the carrots, beans, and mushrooms used in this chinese fried rice recipe. However, you can add your preferred choice and quantity of vegetables to your version of fried rice recipe.
- Mushrooms: Swap button mushrooms for cremini or shiitake mushrooms. If you do not have mushrooms, then simply do not add them.
- Flavors and seasonings: Add a bit of tomato ketchup for a slightly sweet flavor. To make spicy fried rice, add some red chili sauce or green chili sauce along with the soy sauce.
- Celery: I recommend not to skip celery! Finely diced celery adds great texture and taste to this Chinese-inspired recipe. While you certainly can skip adding if you don’t have it available, I highly recommend that you do include it if you are able to.
As the stir-frying is done at a high heat, it is best to avoid extra virgin olive oil as it has a low smoke point.
Oil with a high smoking temperatures are good to make fried rice. For a lovely nutty aroma, I suggest toasted sesame oil but use it on a low heat. Fats like sunflower, avocado, peanut oil and butter are some better options.
Long grained non-sticky rice is usually used in Chinese cooking. Basmati recipe fits the bill as it is long grained and non-sticky as well. Try to use aged basmati rice for best results.
Drain your rice thoroughly. There shouldn’t be any liquids or water in them. The cooked rice has to be cooled completely.
Adding warm or hot rice while stir-frying will make it soggy and pasty. The cooked rice has to be cold or at room temperature when stir-frying.
Al dente cooked rice is perfect for non-mushy fried rice. If rice grains have softened or overdone, they will break when stir-frying and become mushy.

Veg Fried Rice Recipe
For cooking rice
- 1 cup basmati rice or long grained rice – 190 to 200 grams
- 4 to 4.5 cups water
- ½ teaspoon salt or add as required
- 2 to 3 drops toasted sesame oil or any neutral oil
- 3 tablespoons oil – any neutral flavored oil
- 1 star anise
- ¾ to 1 teaspoon garlic – finely chopped or 3 to 4 small to medium garlic cloves, finely chopped
- ½ teaspoon ginger – finely chopped or ½ inch peeled ginger – optional
- ¼ cup spring onion whites chopped (scallions)
- ¼ cup french beans – finely chopped
- ¼ cup carrots – finely chopped
- ¼ to ½ cup cabbage finely chopped or shredded, optional
- ¼ cup bell pepper or capsicum – chopped. can add red, green or yellow bell peppers
- 1 cup button mushrooms – chopped
- 1 tablespoon celery – chopped, skip if you do not have
- 1 tablespoon soy sauce (naturally brewed) or tamari – can add less or more as required or completely skip
- 1 teaspoon rice wine or rice vinegar
- ½ teaspoon black pepper powder or add as required
- 2 tablespoons spring onions greens – chopped (scallion greens)
- salt as required
- Rinse rice very well till the water runs clear of starch. Soak rice in water for 30 mins. Drain and keep aside.
- In a pot, bring water to a gentle boil with salt and 2 to 3 drops of toasted sesame oil.
- Add the soaked and drained rice to the hot water.
- On a low to medium to medium-high heat simmer rice without the lid.
- When rice becomes al dente or just about cooked, remove the pot from the heat. Strain the rice in a colander or sieve.
- You can also gently rinse cooked rice in water so that they stop cooking and don't stick to each other. Cover the cooked rice and set aside until the rice cools completely. You can even refrigerate rice with a covered lid for 30 minutes.
- When the cooked rice is cooling, chop the veggies finely and keep aside.
- Remember to chop the french beans very finely. They take more time to cook than other veggies. You can also blanch them first and then cook. Another option is to add the beans first and then add the other vegetables.
Making veg fried rice
- Heat oil in a wok or a pan. First add the star anise and fry for a few seconds or until the oil becomes fragrant.
- Add the garlic, ginger and sauté for some seconds. No need to brown the garlic.
- Add the spring onions whites and sauté for about 2 minutes.
- Then add finely chopped french beans.
- Stir fry french beans for 2 to 3 minutes over medium to medium-high heat.
- Add the remaining finely chopped veggies, including mushrooms and celery. Increase the heat to a high to thoroughly cook all of the vegetables.
- You have to continuously toss and stir while frying so that the veggies are uniformly cooked and do not get burnt.
- The vegetables have to be stir-fried, until they are almost cooked and yet retain their crunchiness and crispiness. Stir-frying vegetables on high heat takes about 4 to 6 minutes.
- Add the soy sauce, salt and pepper. Stir quickly and add cooked and cooled rice.
- Stir fry for a few minutes until the sauce has coated the rice well. Keep a check when adding salt, as soy sauce already has salt in it.
- Serve the veg fried rice hot as it is or with with your favorite Chinese side.
- Though fried rice tastes great on its own, you can pair it with Veg Manchurian, Gobi Manchurian, Chilli Paneer, Spring Rolls or Chilli Mushroom. More side recipes for veg fried rice are linked and listed in the main post.
Storing fried rice
- Vegetable fried rice stays good for a day when refrigerated. But I would recommend it to be eaten as soon as you make it since a few days old refrigerated rice is not good for health.
- Rice: Aged, long-grained, non-sticky white rice is the best to make fried rice. Here I have used basmati rice.
- Veggies: You can add your favorite vegetables or mushrooms in a total quantity of 1.5 to 2 cups finely chopped mixed vegetables excluding mushrooms. You can vary the amount of each veggie as you like.
- Protein: Include tofu, seitan, tempeh, or for a vegetarian option, add paneer.
- Mushrooms: Swap button mushrooms for cremini or shiitake mushrooms. Skip if you do not have them.
- Celery: Omit adding celery, if you do not have it.
- Soy sauce: Preferably use naturally brewed soy sauce. For gluten-free fried rice, use tamari or Braggs liquid aminos. Skip soy sauce if you do not prefer it.
- Oils: Peanut, sunflower, avocado oil are good options as they have a high smoking point which suits stir-frying at high heat.
- Cooking rice: Do not overcook the rice. You only want the rice to be al dente. Always drain and completely cool rice before adding it to the stir-fried vegetables. Wet or hot rice will end up being soggy.
- Flavors and seasonings: Add a bit of tomato ketchup for a slightly sweet flavor. To make spicy fried rice, add some red chili sauce or green chili sauce along with the soy sauce.
- Soggy and mushy rice: Drain your rice thoroughly. There shouldn’t be any water in them. Cooked rice has to be cooled completely before you begin stir-frying. Soft or overdone rice breaks when stir-frying and becomes mushy.
- Reheating fried rice: I usually steam them in my Instant-pot for 5 minutes. Sometimes I also stir-fry them in a skillet sprinkling a few splashes of water, so that the rice grains do not dry out.

Hi, great info here, and I’m learning so much from you as I branch out into, what is for me, a new realm of cooking.
I live rather remotely and do not wish to buy the Walmart brand of Basmati rice. Zebra, Royal, Khazana, Shahzada and others offer what they claim is good quality, long-grain, non sticky Basmati rice in bulk sizing for ordering online.
Any recommendation would be greatly appreciated. Thank you so much.
Thanks. I would suggest to buy Indian brands of basmati rice. Some of them are India Gate, Daawat, Kohinoor and Tilda. Hope this helps.
a great way to refresh yesterdays leftover rice – dassana your easy to follow tips have inspired me.
Thanks for your recipe. Was wonderful. Also made kadhi using your recipe, whole family loved it. Thank you Didi…
Great and thanks for sharing your feedback on the recipes. Glad to know.
Would like to know “what is cooking until al dente” mean. Have heard about this being made for noodles as well as rice.
Al dente is an Italian word which means when eaten, the rice or pasta is firm to the bite. Meaning the rice is cooked tender but there is a bite to it when eaten. Hope this helps.
never thought of rinsing the rice ! now i can prepare proper rice for fried rice !
It is so good, goes well with just about any other dish!
super! just what I needed !

What is celery called in hindi. Is it available with the local vegetable vendor.
celery is called as ajmoda. vegetable vendors who sell gourmet veggies like colored capsicum, baby corn, mushrooms, broccoli usually have herbs like celery, basil etc with them.
Hey, ur recipes really helped me a lot in cooking. Thanks and am really grateful to you for posting ur recipes with step by step procedure as well and pics..
Welcome Seetal. Thanks for your positive feedback and kind words.
Dear dassana amit
I have been tried this recipe many times and each time it came out very beautifully.
But i do some variations in it. I do not use mushroom but i add lot of onions and i use much more quantity of garlic than recommended by you.
Can we use other vegetables available locally and seasonally.
thanks dalbara for sharing your feedback and also the variations. mushrooms can be given a skip. and yes more garlic and onions always taste good in a fried rice. you can use seasonal veggies. in fact you can use shredded lauki, zucchini, pumpkin. even finely chopped brinjals and cauliflower can be used. just that you will need to cook them for more time, till they are completely cooked. if using lauki, zucchini or pumpkin, then cook till the moisture dries up and then add the rice. you can also add greens like spinach and amaranth leaves (chaulai). even methi can be added. with methi and amaranth leaves the taste will change.
Can I add tomato sauce in place of soya sauce?
Diksha, you can add. but it will give some sweet taste.
can dried celery be used in it and other indo chinese receipes?
annu, yes you can use dried celery.
Made it )made it again….its awesome awesome awesome !!!!

In basmati rice recipe it is mentioned to add 2 cups water to 1 cup basmati rice, however in this recipe for 1 cup rice we are adding 4.5 cups of water, am confused
in the basmati rice post, the rice is cooked with the absorption method where the water is not drained and all the water is absorbed by the rice. here in this recipe, the rice is cooked with the rapid boiling method, where the water is drained. rapid boiling method is used for cooking rice for stir fried recipes and biryanis as the excess starch is discarded with the drained water.
It is very easy to prepare. I like this very much. My sister and Bro and others like this very much.

dear Dassana I have looked in many markets but can’t find celery, not even in Big Bazaar .I live in Bengal, Howrah which is not really a total suburb,what do I do?
skip celery then. i don’t think you will be able to get where you live.
Megha u will find celery i think at spencers and yes for sure inside the SS hogg market, new market esplanade, they keep almost all stuff for chinese cokking
thansk tapaswini for sharing the details.
Hi I liked the recipes but when I try it won’t come the same.my husb love new food and I always try to make new. Any suggesion for good cooking.
which recipes are you mentioning. any particular ones? let me know.
So I have a question – For celery – Can I use dry celery spice or is it the fresh green celery stalk? I have the dry celery seed spice and was wondering if I could use that and if so how much would you recommend.
you can use dried celery or fresh celery stalks. the seeds would give a different flavor. you can try though. just about 1/8 tsp should be fine.
Thanks for your reply. Is there any substitute for the star anise or if we skip it, would the taste be drastically different?
there would be a subtle difference. but still you can skip star anise.
Hii ! I made it yesterday n followed the recipe to the T ! It came out jus perfect. I had no idea that celery abd star anise would make so much of a difference !
thanks deepti for the positive feedback in veg fried rice. celery is important in indo-chinese recipes.
When you say celery… Did you mean Coriander (cilantro)?!
no, i don’t mean coriander (cilantro). celery is a herb often added to european and chinese cooking.
Celery that i believe you are referring to in your recipe is not a herb.
jaya, celery is a herb and used in indo-chinese recipes.
Celery is ajwain or ajmoda in hindi
celery is no ajwain. though both ajwain and celery are from the same species.
wow very nice dishes.i like very much
I will try by this method though I know different ways of preparing it, and about celery I have plenty of it in dubai
Thanks for the receipe. Let me try it.
Thanks, its clear to me as u show in step by step pic.
I like ur recipes a lot. Well done..
thanks and welcome shawnli.
