Those who follow this blog regularly may know that though I am not a very big fan of brown rice, but due to its health benefits, I have started replacing white rice with brown rice in some of the rice varieties. I do love having that once in a while. Fried rice with mushrooms was a result of one such experiments with brown rice. It tasted nice.
Long grain brown rice- 1 cup
Spring onions- a bunch chopped fine
Ginger- 1small piece chopped fine
Garlic- 2-3 cloves chopped fine
Mushrooms- 12-15 numbers chopped
Soya sauce(dark)- 1tbsp
Salt to taste
Ground pepper- 1tsp
Olive oil- 2tsp
Soak the brown rice in water for about 30 minutes to 1 hour.
Cook in a pressure cooker till it becomes soft, but each grain seperate.
Heat oil in a pan. Add the spring onions followed by ginger and garlic. Saute for 5 minutes. Then add mushrooms. Mix well. Saute and cook well till the mushrooms turns tender. Add the soya sauce along with pepper. Be careful when you add a bit of salt to this as soya sauce contains salt too. Mix well.
Now add the cooked brown rice to this and mix well.
