measuring cup used 1 cup = 250 ml

  • 1 cup White mushrooms sliced
  • 1 tablespoon Olive or sesame oil
  • 2 large Garlic cloves
  • 1 small Onion finely chopped
  • 2 Green chillies slit lengthwise
  • ½ cup Bell Pepper thinly sliced
  • 2 teaspoon Soya Sauce (adjust to suit your taste)
  • 1 teaspoon White Vinegar (optional)
  • 1.5 cups Cooked Basmati Rice (½ cup raw rice)
  • ¼ teaspoon Black Pepper Powder
  • Salt to taste


Prep :

  • Cook the basmati or any kind of rice and allow it to cool completely.If you want you can keep the rice in the refrigerator to get extra firm.
  • Also wash and slice the mushrooms and bell pepper.

Stir Fry:

  • In a skillet or wok, heat 1 tablespoon of the sesame or olive oil over medium high heat.
  • Add the minced garlic and saute for 30 secs or until aromatic.
  • Then add onions and green chilli and cook about 2 minutes till onions turn soft.
  • Then add sliced mushrooms ,capsicum and stir fry till the vegetables are cooked and tender.The mushrooms will ooze out water, do not worry. It will evaporate in few minutes.
  • Then add soy sauce ,vinegar and saute in a high flame stirring regularly without getting burnt.
  • Add the cooked rice, salt and ground black pepper to this and gently mix it evenly.Let this be in a low flame for 2-3 minutes.

Variations for Making Mushroom Fried Rice

Protein: Add ½ cup of crumbled paneer(cottage cheese) ,scrambled tofu or eggs.
Greens: Stir in some spinach leaves or kale towards the end of the cooking time.
Spicy: Add either crushed red pepper flakes or a few teaspoons of sriracha or schezwan sauce.
Oil: You can also use coconut oil or sesame oil for this recipe
Keto: Replace basmati rice with cauliflower rice.You can also add broccoli or edamame for keto diet.


  • Make sure the heat is medium-high to high heat while stir frying.
  • Don’t cover the pan. This causes the mushrooms to steam.
  • Add soya sauce in the end prevents it from absorbing too much into the mushrooms and making it too mushy.
  • Try to use low sodium soya sauce and if you are looking for gluten-free use Tamari or also Coconut Aminos replaces the soy sauce and it’s the best!
