Stir fry is a staple quick cook. Easy to prepare, quick to cook and mega tasty if you add the right ingredients. Chinese stir fry is the norm, and why not?! A proven track record of being super yummy. Personally, I’d choose and Indian takeaway over a Chinese any day of the week. So that got me thinking… why not have an Syn Free Indian Fried Rice?
No more difficult to prepare or cook than a regular stir fry, but with all the great tastes of India. Great to serve on the side of a delicious curry, or fantastic standing pride of place as the main event. Enjoy!
As always with these sorts of dishes, the spices (and amounts of) can be tailored to your own personal tastes and preferences. Have a go at your own flavour combinations! For extra body you could also add chicken or turkey to the dish, have a play and make it your own!
There are a few spices in this Syn Free Indian Fried Rice, but you could replace the ground coriander, garam masala or curry powder, ground ginger and chilli powder with a teaspoon of Korma spice mix and a teaspoon of Tikka spice mix.
However, be sure to check the syns as some have quite a high syn value due to added sugar.
This Syn Free Indian Fried Rice recipe will take you less than 30 minutes to prepare if you have the rice cooked already. If not then just add another 10-15 minutes on to cook the rice.
