Its been a while since I prepared a rice dish with an Indian Chinese touch. I had prepared Corn manchurian as an evening snack for Nehal. There are hardly any corn recipes on my blog and I was hoping to blog Corn Manchurian but realized that my hubby had taken the camera with him and hence I could not take any pictures.
I refrigerated the left over Corn Manchurian hoping to give it a make over. On busy or lazy days when you want to spend less time in the kitchen, left overs come to the rescue. Today was one such day and I decided to use left over rice and manchurian to make a quick one pot meal. A flavorful recipe with minimal ingredients using Indian Chinese cooking technique and spices.
Indian Chinese style fried rice with corn manchurian
Raw rice - 1 1/4 cups, cooked till each grain is separate or use left over cold rice
Spring onions - 3, finely chop the whites and greens
Carrot - 1, (small) finely chopped
Capsicum - 1, (small) finely chopped
Garlic - 3 cloves, finely minced
Dry red chilies - 2, tear into pieces
Soy sauce - 1/2 tsp
Vinegar - 1 tsp
Pepper powder - 1/2 tsp
Salt to taste
Cooking oil - 1 tbsp
Method for making Corn Manchurian Fried Rice
Heat oil for deep frying the corn manchurian. While the oil is heating, take a bowl and mix in the coarsely ground sweet corn, green chilies, ginger garlic paste, coriander leaves, salt, maida and corn flour. Make small balls and deep fry to a golden brown shade. Drain the manchurian and place on absorbent paper. Keep aside.
In a cooking vessel, heat oil, add the minced garlic and saute for a few seconds. Add dry chilies and spring onion whites and saute on high flame for 2 mts, tossing the contents constantly.
Add the finely chopped carrots, beans and capsicum and saute for 7 to 8 mts on high flame, constantly mixing the contents so that they do not burn. Add salt, vinegar, pepper powder and soy sauce and mix.
Add the corn manchurian and mix. Add the cooked rice and mix well for a mt. Adjust salt and turn off flame.
Remove onto a serving bowl and garnish with spring onion greens.
You can add finely chopped beans, cabbage and cauliflower to boost nutrition quotient.
