Cook the rice set aside to cool naturally (or refrigerate it for at least 3 hours uncovered or until completely dry and grains are easily separated).
Heat a wok in high heat. Make sure to keep all the ingredients already. Add the olive oil, followed by onion sauté for second then add garlic, stir for 5-6 seconds and the minute the aroma starts wafting, add rest of the vegetables.
Make sure nothing burns given that you are cooking in high heat. Keep stirring, this whole things should take around 30-40 seconds.
Next add the rice. Stir until combined, . Stir for the flavors to combine. Make sure you don’t stir it too much because the rice will break.
Serve the Vegetable Rice with Chicken Manchurian or any other gravy.
You want the vegetables to be cooked but still crunchy which is why it is important to chop the vegetables into small pieces (and also keep them uniform in size).
Can also add Soya Sauce it’s your choice I don’t use.
Can also add chicken, egg along with vegetable.
