One pot meals are my favourites for Sundays. I like chopping all the colorful veggies. This is one simple recipe that gets done without much effort and in a very less time. Cook the rice, half cook the veggies, mix and serve, as easy as it sounds. Well this is my own recipe that I had to invent as I had very little quantities of all the veggies. Also, having mixed vegetable rice atleast once in a week is a healthy idea.

  • Cooked Rice - 2 cups
  • Carrots - 2(medium size)
  • Peas - 1 cup
  • Beetroot - 1(small)
  • Potatoes - 2(small)
  • Onions - 2(sliced)
  • Green Chilies - 2(slit lengthwise)
  • Mint leaves - Handful
  • Coriander leaves - Handful
  • Garam masala - One and half teaspoon
  • Ginger-garlic paste - 1 teaspoon
  • Salt - As per taste
  • Oil - 3 teaspoons


Chop and keep all the veggies ready.
Cook the carrots on slow flame for 10 min.

For boiling potatoes, peas and beetroot I used the steamer part of rice cooker and steamed them. This way the peas and beetroot dont loose their natural colour and the potatoes don't turn mushy too.

Add oil in a wok. Also add ginger-garlic paste, onions, green chilies, mint leaves and coriander leaves. Fry them till the onions turn light pink.

Add the half cooked veggies, salt and mix well.

Add the garam masala powder and give a quick stir. Add it to the cooked rice, mix lightly and check for salt. Add fresh and finely chopped coriander leaves to the rice. The delicious vegetable fried rice is ready to be served.

Serving Options:

Serve with any side dish of your choice. Simple onion-curd-coriander raita will go very well with this mild fried rice.
