Tofu & Veggies Fried Rice

This has recently become one of my daughter's favorite dishes. Here's how I make it:

1 cup white rice - I use short grain variety for this and cook with abt 2 cups water in the pressure cooker for 1 whistle, then let it cool in the cooker itself.
2 tsp veg. oil
1 green chile & 1 dried red chile
1 clove garlic (minced)
1/2 cup firm tofu - crumbled
pinch of turmeric pwd
Veggies I usually use are - onions, green bell peppers, carrots, green beans (all finely chopped), cabbage (shredded) and broccoli florets
2 tbsp soy sauce
1 tsp vinegar
Salt and sugar to taste
Chopped green onions for garnish

Heat the oil in a wok, fry chiles & garlic for 2 mins. Fry onions till slightly softened. Add the crumbled tofu and fry on high heat till all its water evaporates and tofu starts browning. Then lower heat, add all the other veggies, turmeric pwd and saute 5 mins till the veggies cook slightly but still retain their crunch. Then add the soy sauce, vinegar, cooked rice, salt and sugar. Mix well and take off heat. Garnish with chopped green onions.

This is a good way to get picky kids/adults to eat veggies and tofu.

This Tofu & Veggies Fried Rice goes to the Rice Recipes event at My Culinary Creations.
