Fried Rice


Ingredients; ( to serve 4)

  • rice (3 cups)
  • chicken ( 1 kilo)
  • carrots ( 4)
  • green pepper (2)
  • liver/sausage/shrimp (optional)
  • sweet corn (half a cup)
  • green peas (half a cup)
  • onions (1 whole)
  • spring onions
  • salt, pepper (to taste)
  • seasoning cubes ( 3 )
  • curry and thyme (1 tablespoon each)
  • ginger and garlic
  • vegetable oil ( 3 cooking spoons)


  • chop up all the vegetables making sure they are about the same size.
  • wash chicken and in a pot season with pepper, salt, garlic, ginger, 2 seasoning cubes and leave to boil making to add water along the way to prevent your losing your stock or burning the chicken.
  • wash and boil rice in a different pot adding salt. Make sure the rice doesn’t get too soft. Infact it shouldn’t be soft at all.
  • after frying your chicken, in a big enough pot l, add your oil and all the chopped vegetables including the liver/sausage /shrimp if you are adding that. Stir continuously with a wooden spoon preferably.
  • add remaining spices making sure you stir as you add.
  • after about 2 minutes begin to add boiled rice in little by little to enable you stir properly. I usually do this till the sauce to rice ratio is about right. Use your discretion! 🙂
  • add your chicken stock after and leave on low heat for about a minute. Turn off heat and your fried rice is better

This is my take on fried rice. I’ve seen so many other recipes but this one works for me just fine. Let me know how yours turns out!
