Preparation for the Rice:
Step 1- Take the assorted rice in a strainable container, and wash it thoroughly till the water runs clear in the wash basin. The caterers use big porus baskets to wash the rice, for better results. Make sure that the rice has trained out all the water, for the further marination process.
Step 2- Melt 5 Tbsp of margarine for the rice preparation. Take a double boiled, or melt it inside the microwave oven. We’re using margarine as a Vegan alternative, as the caterers and chefs use clarified butter or butter for the best results.
Step 3- Incorporate all the ingredients together, for the rice to marinate for 30 mins. Add 1 Tsp of each species Cinnamon Powder, Cardamom Powder, Nutmeg Powder, Mace Powder with the same whole spices like Clove, Cardamon, Mace, Cinnamon & Nutmeg.
Step 4- Stir the spices extremely lightly, so that the spices are well included into the rice and each grain is left unbroken. Add 2 Tbsp Salt and the melted margarine for final stir. Do not add the sugar now, as it will lead to an unwanted caramelization.,
Step 5- Set the entire marination aside, and let it stay like that for at least the next 40-50 minutes at the least. The caterers often cook the rice separately for the fried rice, but we’re going to cook everything together in one pot.
Preparing the Fried Rice Toppings:
Step 1- Take a frying pan and let it dry of any sort of water droplets. Add 3 Tbsp of Sesame Oil ino the frying pan, and let it heat for at least the next 30 seconds.
Step 2- Start adding the required toppings as per your need. If you’re taking Tofu as a protein substance, then add cubed Tofu pieces into the oil. If you’re using soybean nuggets, then the chunks have to be soaked in hot water for one hour before cooking.
Step 3- The best caterers will surely choose sofu, as it is a really good vegan substitute for cottage cheese or ‘Paneer’. As soon as the Tofu starts developing a brownish layer around it, take it out of the pan and set aside.
Step 4- Add the sliced and diced vegetables in the remaining oil for a beautiful stir fry effect. The vegetables should be added in the following order, first add the onion shallots, then the bell peppers and carrots and lastly, the beans with 2 Tbsp of salt. Do not fry the Spring onions, and they’ve to be used for a later time.
For the Fried Rice Sauce and final cook:
Step 1- Take a big pan, and let it heat up for at least one minute. Add the remaining two tablespoons of sesame oil, start making the fried rice sauce. Add, 2 tsp of chopped garlic into the oil with 2 Tbsp of sugar in it.
Step 2- Let the sugar caramelize with the garlic, and add the chopped green and red chillies in the oi. Add t tsp of Soy Sauce, Chilli Sauce, and Apple cider vinegar into the pan. Let it melt and mix well into each other, for the final steps.
Step 3- Incorporate the fried vegetables and tofu into the sauce, and stir it for 2 minutes. Then add the marinated rice into the frying pan. The caterers stir fry the rice for two minutes to skip out all the water from it.
Step 4- Add 2 cups of water into the pan, and cook the rice for next 10 minutes. Check the pit after 10 minutes and add 2 Tbsp of sugar, and the remaining powdered spices alongside black pepper.
