Chicken Fried Rice from Bali


Here is something a little different from the usual fried rice.  The garlic and chillies will give this a little more zing than standard fried rice, but remember that the degree of spiciness is under the control of the cook!  The secret with all fried rice is to use boiled rice left over from yesterday which has been stored in the fridge.

Ingredients Serves 4
Onion, coarsely chopped 2
Cooked ham in thin strips 225 gm
Garlic, finely chopped 2 cloves
Chilli sauce 1 tbspn
Spring onions, chopped 4
Cold, dry boiled rice 225 gm
Chicken breast fillets, chopped 225 gm
Polyunsaturated margarine 4 tbspns
Soy sauce 1 tbspn
Fish sauce 1 tbspn
Scrambled eggs 4
Peeled tomatoes, sliced 2

Cooking method

Heat the margarine in the wok and add the onions until they change color.  Add the ham strips and garlic and stir-fry quickly and then add the chilli sauce and the chopped spring onions.

Now break up the cold boiled rice and slowly add to the work, letting the rice warm up without burning.

When the rice is thoroughly warmed through, add the chicken, soy sauce and fish sauce and continue stirring until the chicken is cooked.

Serve in a warmed dish and sprinkle with the scrambled egg and finally garnish with the tomato slices.
