Corn Fried Rice - an easy and quick vegan dish that makes a perfect weeknight dinner. Flavour packed sweetcorn rice is made with few ingredients that make an ideal dish for kids.
Leftover rice lying in the fridge has so many potential uses and there are so many excellent ways to turn it into an entirely new dish such as this fried rice, Lemon rice, Coconut rice, Jeera rice. Fried rice is a great option for family gatherings, potlucks or any parties. The process remains the same but you need to use freshly cooked rice. Honey Garlic Cauliflower, manchurian or any Indo-Chinese starters pairs well with fried rice. Sweet corn rice made with freshly prepared rice can be packed for lunch box too. This is a great way to make kids eat vegetables without any fuss since this is mildly spiced.
Corn fried rice recipe variations
To make this recipe simple, you could use just sweet corn kernels skip rest of the vegetables - carrots, bell pepper, cabbage, onion. This cuts down the extra work to chop the vegetables and saves your time.
Mixed peppers and beans make a great addition.
You could substitute fresh corn with frozen or tinned sweetcorn. If you are using frozen corn just thaw and drain well before using, it is not necessary to boil them.
