Olive Fried Rice

I normally prepare fried rice with Jasmine rice and add in a lot of veggies. Today tried it with the red rice which I usually use for salads and Khichidi for their nutty flavour and high nutritional value.

It was worth the try. We all loved the blend of the olives with the cooked red rice. I hope you all will make some and share your experience…


Red Rice – 1 cup cooked.

Olive oil – 2 table spoons

Olives – 6 to 8 chopped

Pepper powder – 1/4 spoon

lemon juice – 1 tea spoon

Onions – 2 sliced finely

Ginger – quarter inch ginger ( sliced finely)

Garlic – 5-6 cloves chopped

Green chilli – 1 finely chopped

Spring Onions- 1 handful chopped

Soya sauce – 1.5 t spoons

Chilli garlic sauce -1 spoon

Apple Cider Vinegar-1 spoon

Paprika -1 small spoon

Salt as per taste (Please note that the sauces used above have salt in it so please add the salt bearing this in mind)

Method: In a pan take some oil and then sauté the ginger and garlic followed by green chillies, olives and the onions.

Now add in the pepper, salt, chilli garlic sauce, soya sauce, vinegar and paprika. Sauté for a few seconds on a high flame and toss in the cooked red rice and lemon juice.Mix well and sauté for another 3 to 4 mins.

The aroma of the fried rice fills the kitchen making you want to have it immediately. Garnish with more black olives if you wish and the dish is ready.
