Instructions
 

  • In a pot heating up in medium heat, drizzle some oil and let it heat up slightly.
  • Add the washed rice into the pot and stir continuously until brown. This should take about 15-20 minutes.
  • Winnie’s Note - toasting the rice will help the rice grains stand apart and add a depth of flavor to the final dish. It will also prevent the fried rice from going bad if stored properly in the refrigerator.
  • After toasting, add the water or chicken stock, and season with curry powder, turmeric powder, seasoning cube and salt to taste
  • Afterwards, cover the pot and cook till the rice is tender
  • When the rice is fully cooked, fluff it with a spoon, then take it out of the pot, transfer to a mixing bowl and set aside
  • In the same pot, drizzle more oil and allow to heat up slightly
  • Then add the chicken, season with salt and cook until brown
  • Then add the onion, chopped chilli pepper, and garlic paste. Stir fry till fragrant, about 30-45 seconds
  • The carrots go in next. Mix to combine and stir fry for a further one minute to soften the carrots slightly
  • Afterwards, add the curry powder, thyme, cumin powder, seasoning cubes, ketchup and salt to taste. Mix to combine
  • Next, add the cooked rice, cabbage, green bell, red bell, yellow bell pepper, sweet corn and green peas. Then mix to combine
  • Cover the pot and let it steam for 2-3 minutes
