7.     Oil-2tbsp
8.     Salt.
Method of preparation
1.     Heat oil in a pan. Add all the vegetables and salt. Sauté for 2minuts.It should not be overcooked. Once it changes its color add the Schewan sauce. Stir for a minute. Add the cooked rice mix gently. Lastly add some pepper powder. Give a nice stir. Switch off the flame. Keep it closed for some time. Serve with some chicken curry or it can be enjoyed merely with some sauceJ

 Notes: Rice can be made more flavorful by adding a tbsp of chopped spring onion and celery. If you like to have restaurant style deep red color rice use kashmiri chilly or a little red food color.
