Mushroom fried rice recipe – stir fried Chinese style fried rice with mushrooms


  • 1 cup or 1.25 cups basmati or long grained rice
  • 200-250 gms white button mushrooms
  • 2-3 garlic cloves – finely chopped
  • 1 medium onion or 2-3 spring onions, chopped finely
  • ¾ to 1 tbsp chopped celery
  • 1 tbsp naturally fermented soy sauce
  • 2 to 3 tbsp oil
  • Salt and black pepper as required


  1. First rinse the rice till the water runs clear of the starch. Then cook the rice in 5 cups of water with a few drops of oil and some salt.
  1. Avoid cooking the rice till it becomes mushy or too soft. Drain the rice in a colander and keep aside.
  1. After the initial steam passes from the rice, cover the colander with a lid. Let the rice cool completely before you add it to the mushrooms.
  1. Heat oil in a saucepan, add the garlic and onions first and stir fry for 2 minutes on a high flame.
  1. Then add the chopped mushrooms and stir-fry for 5-6 minutes or more on a high flame till the mushrooms begin to get lightly browned from the edges.
  1. First the whole mixture will become watery as mushrooms will release water and slowly the water will evaporate and you will see oil floating in the mixture.
  1. When the mushrooms begin browning, add the celery and stir-fry for a minute. Add soy sauce, black pepper and salt. Stir and then add the rice. Stir gently but briskly.
  1. Stir-fry the rice for 2-3 minutes. Serve the mushroom fried rice hot garnished with celery or spring onion greens with a side Indo- Chinese vegetable dish like vegetable balls in hot garlic sauce, sweet and sour vegetables, vegetable manchurian.


To give some heat in the dish, you can add a bit of red chili powder or cayenne pepper.
