Can I use White Rice instead of Brown Rice?

Sure. For health reasons, I prepared my fried rice with basmati brown rice, however feel free to use white rice. Just make sure you cook the white rice for 5 minutes on High Pressure in the Instant Pot.

Any Indo-Chinese dish works with this type of fried rice. I recommend my Chili Tofu and Vegetable Hakka Noodles.

    Another fantastic dish by Nisha!
    The tips about overnight rice / soaking etc all are very helpful.

    I used what I had – corn and string beans – and it still came out excellent!
