Basmati Fried Rice!

Basmati Fried Rice
I love this recipe so much. Basmati rice is my favorite rice of all. Its nutty flavor compliments almost everything. For this recipe I used Brown Basmati rice but you can always use white rice. I also served this with toasted pita bread.

Cook Time:30 Minutes

Serves 2-3

All you need is:

4 cups of cooked basmati rice

1 medium potato diced small

1/2 an onion diced

1 carrot peeled and diced

3-4 mini sweet peppers diced (you can always substitute with 1/2 a red or yellow bell pepper)

1 cup of cooked chickpeas

1 garlic clove minced

2 tbs of fresh cilantro chopped

1/2 tsp of turmeric powder

1 tsp of ground coriander

1/2 tsp of onion powder

1/2 tsp of garlic powder

pinch of cinnamon

4 tbs of extra virgin olive oil

Salt and pepper to taste


Place a large skillet over medium heat and add in oil, potatoes, onion and cook for 7-8 minutes stirring ocassionally. Next add in garlic, carrots and peppers and cook for an additional 6-7 minutes or until the vegerables become tender. Then add in the rice, chickpeas, and seasonings and cook for an additional 5 minutes. Stir in cilantro and add salt and pepper to taste. That’s it.
