Healthy fried rice is a guilt-free version of the widely popular Indo-Chinese fried rice. Fried rice is a hot favorite for Indians and is vastly different from the fried rice found across South East Asia. The Indian version uses long grain and non-sticky rice, whereas the rest of the Asian countries use glutinous opaque rice grains that are sticky when cooked. Fried rice and the rest of the Indo-C ... hinese cuisine were introduced by Hakka Chinese settlers who came to Kolkata, India, in the early 19th century. Over some time, the food has adapted to the fiery taste of the Indian pallet. Healthy fried rice, restaurant-style, is made with a lot of crunchy vegetables and rice, making this a wholesome dish. Healthy fried rice goes with Indo-Chinese side dishes like cauliflower Manchurian, Chilli tofu, sweet and sour vegetables, and chili baby corn. They can be equally partnered with the Indian curries like paneer butter masala, maa ki dal, or palak curries. The healthy fried rice caloric, counts up to 468 and is a filling meal by itself or can be had with a stir-fried leafy salad for a healthy diet option. The healthy fried rice needs about 10 minutes of actual cooking time after the food prep. The combination of the vinegar's sharpness and the saltiness from the soy sauce brings a zing to the dish.
