Cooking the rice:

In a pot, bring to a gentle boil  water with salt and 2 to 3 drops of oil.Add the soaked and drained rice to the hot water.Once it is cooked, keep aside till the rice cools completely.

Preparing the fried rice:

When the rice is cooling, chop the veggies finely and keep aside. remember to chop the french beans very finely. they take more time to cook than other veggies.

Heat oil in a  pan. first add the onion and fry for some seconds or till it becomes transparent.Add the garlic and saute for some seconds. no need to brown the garlic. 

    Then add all the finely chopped veggies. Increase the flame on a high and stir fry the veggies on a high flame.

      The veggies have to be stir fried, till they are almost cooked and yet retain their crunchiness and crispiness.Add the soy sauce, salt ,pepper and vinegar stir quickly

        Then add the rice. stir fry for a few minutes till the sauce has coated the fried rice well. keep a check when adding salt, as soy sauce already has salt in it.

          Finally garnish with coriander leaves.Serve the veg fried rice immediately.
