Chicken Fried Rice

Have you tried the chicken fried rice from the Kaiyendhi bhavan's or mini hotels of "NAMMA CHENNAI". They taste too good and just right that you will want more. We have an occasional take-away from the mini hotel near our house or when the huss is in cooking mood, he makes this mixed fried rice. He sautes the veggies just right, adds the right amount of sauces and seasons it just the way it needs to be. Its his best dish till date.

We have been craving fried rice lately and since appa is away, we have no-one to get that take-aways for us. Finally we had to give in and so amma and me decided to make it at home. I always have those Chinese sauces at home and so putting them together sounded no big deal. In fact we thought it would be fun. What I have given below is the measurements that suited our palate, that which we came up with trial and error method. So do a taste check before you add some sauce or some pepper.

If you are a vegetarian then use crumble paneer instead of chicken, if you are an eggiterian then simply skip the chicken and if you are vegan, use just the veggies. Ajinomoto is a must for all fried rice recipes but lately a hell lot of research has been going on to ensure if it safe to use this in food... Why give it the benefit of doubt and so I never use it in my cooking... But if you are okay with it, then sprinkle a pinch of ajinomoto and mix well... I am not promoting the product at any cost here, but just telling that if u have used it in your cooking then add it when making this rice. They say it increases the flavor.

~*What U Need*~
Servings - 2 to 3
Cooked Basmati rice - 1 1/2 cups

For chicken fry:
Chicken breast - 2 pieces
Vinegar - 1 tsp
Lemon juice - few drops
Chilli powder - 1/2 tsp
Coriander powder - 1 tsp
Garam masala - 1/4 tsp
Turmeric powder - a pinch
All purpose flour - 2 tbsp
Cornflour - 1 tbsp
Egg white - 1
Oil - to deep fry

Onion - 1, sliced
Beans - 7, chopped
Carrot - 1, julienned
Egg - 1
Green peas - 1/4 cup
Soya sauce - 1 1/2 tsp
Chilli sauce - 1/2 tsp
Salt, pepper(2 tsp) - to season

How I Made it:
Cook your basmati rice with required water, cool and fluff with fork. Set aside. Mix the chicken with the ingredients given under chicken fry and marinate for 30 mins minimum. Deep fry in oil till cooked. Cool and shred or cut into pieces.

Chop onions and vegetables. Set aside. Heat oil, saute the onions for 2 mins. Move the onions to the other side of the pan, crack open the egg and scramble, mix with the onions.

Next add the vegetables and cook till tender but crisp. Add soya sauce, green chilli sauce, salt and pepper. Mix well.

Add the shredded chicken and give it a quick stir. Add the rice and mix gently till well combined. Check for seasoning.

Serve warm!!!

** My Notes:
** The vegetables should not get fully cooked.
** Do the whole process in high or medium-high flame.
** Adding scrambled egg is optional.
** Similarly u can skip chicken and scramble 3 or 4 eggs to make egg fried rice.

So thats it Folks...
With Love,
