Hello , food lovers today .

I'm gonna share with you this quick and easy vegetable rice recipe growing up , I was a fussy eater and my mom would sneak in vegetables at every opportunity she got including the rice .

Now , this recipe adds another dimension to the plain old steamed rice .

It's light and fluffy with the goodness of the veggies at the same time .

So let's get started .

I will start with washing one cup of basmati rice .

Now , the trick to a nice and fluffy rice is to wash it a few times until the water runs clear .

So please do not skip the step .

Now , I'll go ahead and wash the rice .

I washed the rice about three times and now if you see the rice is clean and the water is all clear , add some more water and let the rice soak for at least 20 minutes to a maximum of one hour .

The rice has been soaking for half an hour .

Drain the water and set it aside .

The rice grains are really fragile at this point .

So make sure you do not handle it too much to a nonstick pan .

Add one cup of frozen vegetables .

I'm using carrot and peas today .

Now , if you're using fresh vegetables , all you have to do is add 1/4 cup of water in the pan and cover it and cook it for 3 to 4 minutes or until the vegetables are slightly soft , but still has a crunch to it .

Now , moving on in goes the soaked rice , add 1.5 cup of water .

So the proportion is one cup of soaked rice to 1.5 cup of water .

Now , this gives the perfect fluffy rice every single time you can add chicken stock .

Instead if you like one tablespoon of extra virgin olive oil or any oil of your choice .

14 teaspoon of salt , one bay leaf .

Now this is optional .

Give it a gentle stir and bring all of this to a nice rigorous boil .

Now the water has come to a boil , turn down the heat of your stuff to the lowest point and cover it and cook it for 10 minutes .

The rice looks beautifully cooked .

Now give it a very light stir because the rice is very soft at this point and you do not want to break it .

Let it sit for a minute or two to get rid of that extra moisture .

Now cover the lid and set aside .

This is a foolproof recipe and the rice turns out to be perfect every single time .

I hope you have enjoyed my recipe .

If so , please share it with your friends and family and of course , don't forget to subscribe .
