I am back after a long hiatus. Spent the better part of last year reading quite a lot and cooking too but never had much time to blog. Fried rice inspired by Kylie Kwong’s recipe.
Holy Shit ! Chicken Fried Rice
Cooked short grained rice : 2 cups ( Preferably one day old )
Carrot : 1, chopped finely
Green bell pepper : 1, medium chopped finely
Red cabbage : 1/2 , small sized chopped finely
Yellow bell pepper : 1, medium chopped finely
Onion: 1/2, chopped finely
Garlic : 6 cloves, chopped finely
Ginger : 1/2 inch, chopped finely
Red and green chili: 1 each, chopped
Chicken : 1/2 cup, diced into bite sized
Oil: For frying
Cracked black pepper
Soy sauce : 1 tsp
Rice wine vinegar : 2 tsp
In a hot wok heat some oil and when it begins to shimmer on the surface crack the egg and put it in the wok. Scramble it and cook it till the eggs are done. Cut the fried egg in smaller pieces and set it aside from the wok. Clean the wok and add some more oil. To this add the garlic,ginger and onion. Saute for two minutes until the onion turns translucent. To this add the chicken pieces and fry at medium heat. When the chicken is beginning to change its color and harden you know it is done.
Next add all the vegetables to it and stir fry. Add soy sauce and vinegar and season well. Increase the flame to high and fry until the carrots are cooked but firm. Add the fried eggs and chicken to the mix and stir. Add the cooked rice to it and cook for three more minutes.
Serve with Tso’s chicken or orange chicken. But you can just finish it up without a side dish. It is that good !
