Chicken Fried Rice


Fried rice has to be simple, quick and flavorful. I have used basmati rice in my recipe and the brand I use never sticks. The version I have put together has minimal ingredients most of which will be home and can be tossed together in a jiffy

Recipe:

Must Haves : Soya sauce , Eggs , Rice , Chicken Stock / Stock  Cube

Serves : 2

For the chicken :

Oil : 1 Tbsp

Chicken thigh or breast – 1 about 150gm diced to about 1 cm in size

Ginger garlic paste : 1/2 tsp

Red chilli flakes : 3/4 tsp

Salt : to taste

Turmeric : 1/4 tsp (optional)

Chilli powder : 1/4 tsp (optional)

For the Rice :

Uncooked basmati rice : 200 gms or 1 3/4 cup (my cup measures 160ml)

Oil :  2 tsp Oil 

Butter : 1 tsp

Garlic : 2 medium cloves finely chopped

Vegetables : Carrots finely diced & frozen baby peas – 1/2 cup each

Eggs : 3 beaten

White pepper : 1/2 tsp

Sesame oil : 2 tsp (optional)

Method

Rice:

Wash and soak the rice for about 30 mins

In a cooker add water. Ratio 1:1.75 (1 cup rice : 1 3/4 cup water). Add the stock cube and let it boil

Add a tsp oil and rice. Cover cook on medium for 2 whistles. Remove and open after 15 mins. Fluff rice with fork to avoid breakage

Chicken :

Heat 1 tbsp oil in a pan and add the ginger garlic paste, saute for about 30 seconds.

Now add the chicken and saute with the powders if adding.

Lower the flame and Cook for about 5-7 minutes till chicken is well cooked

Add in the chilli flakes. I added a few coriander leaves (optional)

Remove from heat

In another wide pan add 2 tsp oil, butter and the garlic. Stir for about 30 secs

Add the vegetables and the peas. Sprinkle 1/4 tsp salt.

Add the pepper. Saute till done

Beat the eggs

Now make a small well to pour in the beaten eggs. Let it sit for about a min and then slowly stir in the veggies 

Stir on high heat and add the Rice and toss gently. Finally add the chicken, give a quick stir and then the soya sauce and sesame oil if using. Quickly mix through and remove. 

Serve hot
