Today, I’m here for all my vegetarian readers. A while ago, two of my classmates who happen to be vegetarian asked me “Please please make something to cater for us as well” and I realized I actually barely do this! So this post is dedicated to my two classmates who asked me for this ! I hope you like it and try it out. Rice can be elevated in a number of ways and this is how I do mine the vegetarian version!


  • Half a cup of rice
  • One and a half cup of water
  • Oil
  • Salt
  • Diced carrots
  • Diced spring onion
  • 1 tablespoon of soy sauce
  • Raisins
  • Non- salted cashew nuts (optional)
  • Cilantro for garnish

Serves : 2

Prep time : 6 minutes

Cook time : 15 minutes


  • Wash your rice thoroughly
  • In a sauce pan, add in your 1 and 1/2 cup of water. The reason we add in this amount is because the ratio of rice to water is 1:2. So for every amount of rice you cook, you add in twice as much water.
  • Let the water boil and add in a tablespoon of oil and two pinches of salt
  • Add in your rice and let it cook through for about 8-10 minutes till the water all evaporates.
  • Add in a drizzle of oil once the water has all evaporated to avoid the rice from sticking together.
  • Set your rice aside and let it cool.

NB: for the best fried rice, set it in the fridge and remove it the following day.

  • In a pan, add in a tablespoon of oil
  • Add in your carrots & spring onion and let them cook for about 3 minutes
  • Add in your rice and stir it.
  • Add in your soy sauce, as you stir the rice gently at low heat
  • Add your raisins and your rice is ready to eat!
  • You may as well garnish with some cashew nuts and cilantro and serve !

See how easy that was? Right

See you on the next post folks!
