Spring onion-Mushroom Rice

Last time when I had been to Chinese restaurant I had ordered Mushroom fortune rice, I was so impressed that i wanted to try it ...so yesterday had tried this rice and we actually loved it a lot it was almost similar to the rice we had . Mainly because of spring onion it gives a very good flavour to the rice and love the aroma.

1/2 cup finely chopped spring onion + greens

1 tbsp soya sauce
1 tsp ajinomoto
1 tsp vinegar
4-5 garlic finely chopped
2 tbsp oil
2 tbsp melted butter
salt to taste
few chopped spring onion greens for garnishing

  • Boil the basmati rice in 3 cups water till 3/4th done, drain it and keep aside to cool.
