Fried Rice

Another recipe from Munira! After making us a wonderful dinner, she described how to make fried rice from the leftover rice in her Instant Pot, and sent me home with spiced rice that I could fry up with an onion and veggies. So simple, tasty, and pretty. Here's the (rough) recipe (guessing at measurements).


6 C cooked rice (in Instant Pot)
2 tsp chili powder
2 tsp turmeric
1-2 tsp salt

3 T canola oil
1 red onion, diced
1 hot pepper, diced (optional)
2 T mustard seed
1 tsp hing
2 C mixed veggies (peas, corn)
1/2 C cashews (optional)


Cook the rice in an Instant Pot and let it cool. Sprinkle chili powder, turmeric, and salt on the rice in the Instant Pot, and mix it up with your hands. You can store it at this point, and continue the rest later, if desired.

In oil, saute mustard seed, hing, onion (and hot pepper, if using), cooking until onion is transparent. Add veggies and stir a few minutes. Add spiced rice. Optionally add cashews. Stir often and cook on low for 15 minutes. 

Munira does her magic:
