Spicy Fried Rice - Using Sambal (Chilli Garlic Sauce)

Variety rice is very tricky to me. Lot of times, it ends up being dry. This is yet another attempt and came out nice and spicy! So, wanted to share the recipe with you all :)

Number of servings - 2 -3
Mixed vegetables - 1 cup (I used celery, colored bell peppers, carrots)
Onion - 1 chopped
Pepper - freshly ground
Ginger Garlic - 1 spoon freshly shredded
Sambal or chilli garlic sauce - 1 spoon (I got this from Target, but you can get it in most grocery shops. Can be made at home by soaking red chillies and making a paste along with the soaked water,garlic) - This is the main source of the spiciness (kaaram), so adjust it to your taste.
Tomato Ketchup - 1/2 spoon
Olive oil

Basmati rice - 1 cup
Water - 1 and 1/2 cups

  • Heat oil in a wok, add the onions and ginger garlic shredded and saute well
  • Add the vegetables and saute well and add freshly ground pepper and salt
  • Add the sauce and ketchup and saute well
  • Add the sauteed vegetables to the rice and water and cook it in the rice cooker
Note - I totally forgot to temper any spices!. But, next time sure will :)


  1. looks really spicy and delicious.

  2. Thank you R! Sambal made a great difference in the flavor...
