6. Handful of fresh basil leaves
7. 2 Tablespoons of olive oil
8. Salt, pepper to taste
9. Red chilli flakes (optional)


1. Begin by heating olive oil in a pan over medium heat. Once hot, add the carrots, bell pepper and zucchini.
2. As vegetables begin to soften, increase the heat to high and continue sautéing until vegetables become slightly caramelized or have a light brown hue.
3. Subsequently, pour freshly squeezed orange juice into the pan, stir well, and allow the vegetables to simmer in the juice for 2 minutes.
4. Following that, add boiled rice to the pan. Stir well to evenly distribute the vegetables and juice throughout the rice.
5. Season the mixture with salt, pepper and if preferred, a smattering of red chili flakes. Mix everything well.
6. Finally, finish the dish by stirring in a handful of fresh basil leaves. Allow them to wilt slightly in the heat before removing the pan from the stove.

There you have it – a Thai inspired infused rice bowl that rings true to the intricate flavors of Thai cuisine, made compliant to a Jain diet using everyday Indian ingredients. With enticing citrus notes harmoniously blending with earthy basil, this culinary delight promises a burst of flavors in every spoonful.
