Tricolour Vegetable Rice

Tricolour Vegetable Rice (resembles Flag of India) is very simple to prepare.It hardly takes 15 to 20 minutes. I cook this very often as it is very easy and healthy. Carrot is a very good source of Vitamin A. Beans is the perfect food for a fat-restricted diet. Onions work against the common cold.The regular consumption of onions lower high cholesterol levels and high blood pressure. Do we need more reasons ?

Ingredients:

Rice - 2 Cups
Grated Carrot - 1 Cup
Beans(cut into small pieces)- 1 Cup
Onion (cut into small pieces) - 1 Cup
Green Chillies 3-4 (based on your taste)
Soy sauce - 3 Tbsp
Salt - As Required
Egg (optional) - 2
Oil - 4 Tsp
Pepper powder - 3 Tsp

For Garnishing:
Spring Onion or Coriander Leaves - Few
Method:
  1. Cook rice separately and allow it to cool.
  2. Heat oil in a pan and fry onion slightly.
  3. Add Green chilli , Beans and fry well.
  4. Once beans gets cooked a little, add grated Carrot and continue frying until they are cooked.
  5. Add salt to the fried vegetables.
  6. Once cooked, transfer the contents into a container (this can be refrigerated and used for next day even)
  7. Heat oil in a pan, add Egg and fry it.(optional)
  8. Add cooked rice and fry for sometime.
  9. Add soy-sauce to the rice and mix it well keeping the pan on the stove.
  10. Add some pepper and mix well.
  11. Gradually add the fried vegetables to rice.
  12. Mix the vegetables with rice and simmer for 2 mins.
  13. Garnish with fresh coriander leaves or spring onion.
