How to Make Fish fried rice with veggies

  • Wash the basmati rice and keep aside.
  • Heat 1 tbsp butter in a non-stick deep skillet and fry the whole garam masala.
  • Add rice and fry again for a minute.
  • Add water, 1/2 tsp salt and cook rice till it is fully done.
  • Fill a steamer pan to the required level with water.
  • To the water, add black pepper powder, 1 tbsp lemon juice, 1 tsp ginger-garlic paste and 3/4 tsp salt.
  • Bring the steamer pan to a boil.
  • Lower the heat to medium.
  • Place the pieces of fish in the steamer basket and lower the basket into the steamer.
  • Cover and steam till the fish turns opaque; do not overcook.
  • Remove and allow the fish to cool.
  • If you do not have a steamer basket, do this whole process in a normal pan, but make sure NOT to add a large amount of water since it doesn't take long for the fish to cook.
  • Add the coriander leaves, 2 green chillies, 1 tsp ginger garlic paste and grated coconut in a blender and make a thick paste adding 1 tbsp water.
  • Boil the peas; do not overcook, it should retain its green colour.
  • In a non-stick deep skillet, heat 1 tsp oil, add onion and fry till translucent, add the garam masala powder, add carrots and boiled peas, cook for a minute.
  • Add the prepared fish.
  • Then add the cooked rice and coconut paste.
  • Mix it thoroughly with the vegetables and fish.
  • Add 1 tbsp lemon juice, cover and cook on low flame for not more than 2-3 minutes until all the flavours blend in.
