Well, my motto is to post quick and easy recipes for the busy vegan, and you really can’t get much quicker, and easier, than this Vegan Vegetable Stir-Fried Rice.
Sometimes you just need things super-quick and this recipe certainly fits the bill for ‘super-quick’! And that’s why I chose to use ready-to-eat rice to keep it ‘super-quick’!.
With so many great ready-to-eat/microwave in 2 minutes rices in the supermarkets, it seems only right to take advantage 😉. But no need to microwave the rice for this Vegan Vegetable Stir-Fried Rice.
And by adding Kala Namak, it gives a real ‘Egg-Fried Rice’ taste.
What is Kala Namak?
Kala Namak is a wonderful egg flavoured salt that comes from the Hymalayan mountains and gets its flavour from the sulfer in the volcanic rock.
It comes in pink and black. I find the pink version to have a slightly less eggy flavour, but still great in dishes where you might like a little ‘eggy’ touch.
But I prefer the black version and that is what I have used in this recipe.
Got 5 minutes to spare?
Heat some oil in a wok, stir in some salt and add the vegetables (peas and sweetcorn), and stir-fry for 2 minutes. I chose peas and sweetcorn to keep it quick and also to keep the ‘Pilau’ look – Yummy!
Add the rice, straight from the packet.
Stir-fry for another 1-2 minutes, ensuring the rice is piping hot, and serve.
How quick and how easy was that?
A delicious, ready to serve, rice dish in less than 5 minutes.
