    Preparation of chicken fried rice with step by step photos

    Step 1 : Cooking the rice

    1. To make the fried rice, I used long grain basmati rice. But you can try with any odorless white rice. Take the rice in a bowl.
    2. Pour enough water for soaking. Make sure the water level is at least one inch above the rice level. Let it rest for next twenty to thirty minutes. After thirty minutes, wash the rice two to three times in tap water, drain and set aside.

    3. Meanwhile, take almost eight cups of water in a pot. Put a pinch of salt. The addition of salt is actually optional. I usually add to get the rice properly seasoned.

    4. When the water comes to a rolling oil, put the rice.

    5. Let it cook over a high flame or medium flame (adjust to your convenience) till the rice became al dente.

    6. Drain through a colander.

    7. Immediately, separate the rice with a fork or spoon gently or without breaking the rice grains.

    8. Once all the water drained, spread it on a plate and let it cool down completely.

    2. Put half teaspoon pepper powder and salt to taste. 

    3. Mix well and set aside for thirty minutes.

    4. After thirty minutes, add one teaspoon maida and one teaspoon cornflour. These two ingredients are just for binding. These two are optional ingredients.

    5.  Heat olive oil or sunflower oil in a pan. Put the chicken pieces, one by one.

    6. Flip when one side comes to a nice golden color and cook the other side also. When done, transfer to another bowl and set aside.

    2. When the ginger and garlic turns aromatic, add  spring onion bulbs, carrot and beans and cabbages.  

    3. Sauté for one minute. Never over cook the veggies. If using a big pan you can do the next step in the same pan itself otherwise transfer the veggies to a bowl.

    4. Meanwhile, break two eggs in a bowl. 

    5. Put pepper powder and salt to taste. 

    6. Mix well.
