Beans – 100 gms (finely chopped)
Carrot – 100 gms (finely chopped)
Cabbage – 100 gms (finely chopped)
Spring Onion – ½ bunch (finely chopped)
Pepper Powder – 1 or 2 tbsp (according to your taste)
Chilly Powder – ½ tbsp
Rice Flour – 1 tbsp
Salt – to taste
Cooking Oil

Service For: 2 People
Cooking Time: 30 minutes

Cooking Instructions:






Measure the rice in a cup. For 1 cup of rice, take 1 ¾ cups of water. Wash the rice well and drain the excess water. Soak the rice in measured cup of water for 15 minutes. If the rice is soaked like this, it will look become lengthier in size and when cooked it gives a good look for basmati rice.

After 15 minutes of soaking, add the rice along with soaked water in a pressure cooker and bring them to boil. When it starts to boil, add required salt and close the lid of the cooker and wait for about 9 minutes. Open the cooker after pressure is released. Let the rice to cool for about 5 minutes. Instead of using a pressure cooker, if you use an electric cooker, the dish can be prepared easily and it looks great.

Cut the chicken into cubes and wash and clean it well. Marinate chicken with chilly powder, rice flour and enough salt to it. Let it remain for 10 minutes. Deep fry it in the oil and keep it aside.

In the meantime, you chop all the vegetables finely into small pieces. It should be chopped as finely as possible.

Heat about 50ml (or as you require) of oil in a deep pan and add chopped onion, and half of the beaten egg and sauté it well. When the egg is cooked well, add the remaining egg and let it cook well. Now add beans, carrot and cabbage and keep frying it in simmer flame. Now add chicken pieces to it and sauté it well. Meanwhile add one teaspoon (just 2 or 3 pinch) of salt and pepper powder to vegetables. Keep frying it until the vegetables are well cooked. It takes about 10 minutes in simmer flame. Now add spring onion to it and keep frying for 2 minutes. Add cooked rice to the pan and mix the rice well with cooked vegetables. Slowly stir it with a wooden spatula or any other blunt spatulas for 2 to 4 minutes. Do not use any sharp spatulas since the rice will be broken to pieces. Transfer the dish to a serving bowl. It requires no side dish at all.
