Mushroom fried rice (Indo-chinese)

Mushroom rice2


My family loves indo-chinese dishes so am here again with another dish.  Here in this recipe I used main ingredient as mushrooms as a best suppliment of Vitamin D during winter.  Soaking chillies and vinegar helps to impart flavours to the dish. This can be great for lunch or packed lunches.

Health Benefits:

Mushrooms are rich in B vitamins. They are also the only vegan, non-fortified dietary source of vitamin D. Mushrooms also provide several minerals that may be difficult to obtain in the diet, such as selenium, potassium, copper, iron, and phosphorus.

Preparation time-10 minutes
Cooking time-15 minutes (excluding the cooking time of rice)


  • Any rice of choice-1cup (I used brown rice)
  • Button mushrooms-250gms (cleaned and sliced)
  • Chopped onion-1medium
  • Garlic cloves-3 (chopped )
  • Green chillies-2 (slit/halved)
  • Chopped celery-1/4cup
  • Soy sauce-1tbsp
  • Vinegar-1-2tbsp
  • Oil-1tbsp
  • Salt and ground black pepper-to taste


  • Soak chopped garlic and slit green chilies in vinegar until required.
  • For cooking rice: rinse and soak rice for 30 minutes. After soaking time drain and bring 4-5 cups of water to boil and cook rice until al dente by adding salt and 1 tsp oil.
  • One cooked drain and spread on a broad pan until cools down.

For fried rice:

  • Heat oil in a wok on high flame until smoky and then add chopped onion and saute for 2-3 minutes on a high flame.
  • Then add the chopped mushrooms and stir fry for 3-4 minutes or until mushrooms are tender.
  • Now add in soaked chilles, garlic along with vinegar and then add soy sauce, celery and continue to cook until mushrooms, celery are cooked and coated well in sauce.
  • Add cooked rice, salt, ground black pepper and stir gently and stir fry for 2-3 minutes or until coated well and heated through.

  • Any vegetables can be included as a variation.
  • Mushrooms tends to release water as cooking so continue to saute until the water evaporates.
  • Soaking chilles and garlic is optional but it helps to impart flavour to the dish

  16. Mushrooms were something I never had growing up. (I told someone else the people around me when I grew up didn’t have any sense of culinary adventure! 🙂 ) “Discovering” them as an adult, I love mushrooms. I’ve been having them a lot lately. This fried rice sounds and looks scrumptious! Mega hugs my friend.
