Carrot & Basil Fried Rice

After coriander and mint leaves, my most favourite herb is basil leaves, i never stopped buying them and never stopped adding them in my cooking especially while making pastas, love basil leaves pesto as well as in pizzas..But this time i prepared a quick,easy and simply delicious fried rice using basil leaves and carrots, an incredible main course to carry even as a lunch box menu or to serve as party menu dish..This fried rice goes for a quick preparation and its gets ready in less time..You can use very well leftover rice for making this quick fried rice, basil leaves in this fried rice gives a distinct flavour while carrot gives a mild sweetness to this spicy fried rice, my teddies enjoyed this delicious fried rice with simple omelette..You can very well add chicken chunks or shrimps or else more veggies to this fried rice, anyhow we loved this carrot and basil leaves combo..


2cups Cooked rice
Few Basil leaves
1/2cup Carrot (chopped)
1no Onion (chopped)
1tsp Red chilly paste
2tbsp Tomato ketchup
2tbsp Soyasauce
1/2tsp White vinegar
Salt
Oil

Heat enough oil, saute the chopped onions, basil leaves together until the onions turns transculent, add immediately the carrots with ketchup,soyasauce,chilly paste,vinegar and salt,saute everything in simmer until the veggies get half cooked (since i love crunchy carrots i didnt cooked them well, if u need them well cooked,cook them for few more minutes)..

Now add the cooked rice, toss everything gently until the veggies and rice gets well mixed, serve hot with meats or simply with an egg omelette..
