49 BASIL FRIED RICE

Basil fried rice

Recipe from my friend Prema.

Ingredients:
Basmati - 2 cups
One large bunch of fresh basil leaves
1 shallot pod or 5 garlic pods
Green onions - 1 small bunch
Vegetables to your taste and need( can use beans, carrot, colored bell peppers, cabbage - all thinly sliced - add around more than a cup)
All purpose marinade - 3 tbsp
Soy Sauce - 5 tblsp
Aginomoto - 1/2 tsp(optional)
Chillie garlic sauce - 2 tbsp
Ching's Schezwan sauce mix one pack
Onion - 1/2 chopped
Jaggery marble size(Optional)
Salt to taste
Oil ( can use sesame oil)



Method:
Wash and soak rice for 30 mts.

Cook the soaked rice in such a way that you get single separate grains. Let it cool and add 2 tblsp to 3 tblsp soy sauce and you can set this aside ahead itself. In a wok add 4 tblsp oil of your choice. Put in the veggies of your choice along with shallots/garlic and onions and the bottom part of the green onions. Saute it for few minutes with 1tsp ajinomoto. Then add one ingredient after the other slowly. Like add the schezwan sauce mix and then all purpose marinade and then chillie garlic sauce and the remaining soy sauce, jaggery and salt and let it get cooked for about 10 minutes in low flame. Need not add water since we already have the sauces. Add the Basil leaves and the green onions and remove from flame and add this to the rice mix well and the food is ready to be served.
Adding basil leaves gives a very good flavor and taste to the rice.
You can make your own schezwan sauce by making a paste with red chillies, vinegar, little salt and few garlic pods.
