Pick, wash and soak the rice in enough water for 10 to 15 minutes and drain.
Boil water, add rice and little salt.

Take care not to overcook the rice. Each grain of rice should be separate.
When rice is done, drain and add some cold water and drain again using a large seive and set aside.
Heat oil in a kadhai / large pan and stir fry all the chopped vegetables.

Add the cooked rice and mix well. Now mix the soya sauce, vineger and green chili sauce to it.
Cook the chinese fried rice for 2 to 3 minutes and serve hot.
