Bengali fried rice recipe is a simple easy Indan vegetable pulao recipe. But it is more flavourful than other Indian veg pulao dish I ever had. This recipe is so special to me because it is my Sunday lunch for a long time. When I was a kid my mom used to make this dish on weekends for us and it’s healthy too. Now I am making the same recipe for my kid now. It’s a recipe which any baby can like for its sweet taste. Yes, This recipe is a little sweet than other rice dishes. My mom used sugar in the dish as same I am doing.
Is Bengali fried rice recipe and Chinese fried recipe both are same?
NO. Both dishes are different from each other. In the Chinese fried rice, they fried the rice with chopped garlic, scallions, and with chopped vegetables and as spice they use black pepper, soy sauce and salt only. Chinese fried rice is a little salty. And the bengali fried rice or an indian veg pulao is little sweeter in taste and bengali never use garlic, scallion or any spices except ground cardamom and sugar and dry bay leaves in this recipe. The spice combination with rice in Bengali fried rice dish makes it so different in taste from other fried rice dishes. I tried many fried rice dishes belongs to many countries but this fried rice dish is unique in taste and no one competes for its taste. I love it’s taste so much.

What kind of rice is perfect for this recipe?
“ATAP CHAL” is the perfect rice for Bengali fried rice dish. Here in Mumbai Atap chal or Atap rice is hard to find. So I replaced it with Basmati rice. Basmati rice is also an Atap chal/Atap rice which many Indians don’t know. The flavour of Bengali ‘Atap Chal’ is more fragrant than any other Basmati rice. If you find atap chal nearby any store to you must try it for this sweet rice pulao dish.
