Recipe by FLKeysJen
READY IN: 45mins




  • Put the rice and double the quantity of water in a heavy saucepan. Bring to a boil. Reduce the heat and simmer partially covered until done. Run a fork through to loosen the grains, cover the pan with a lid and reserve.
  • Meanwhile, heat the oil in a wok. Fry the onion. When translucent, remove half of the slices and reserve. Continue to fry the remaining onion until dark golden in color. Drain and reserve separately.
  • Put the translucent onion back into the wok and add the ginger-garlic paste. Fry for a few seconds.
  • Sprinkle in the spice powders and add the chicken. Stir to seal, until the chicken looks white instead of pink.
  • Add about 4 tablespoons hot water, cover the wok and cook until the chicken is tender and cooked through.
  • Remove from the heat, add the lemon juice and season with salt.
  • Gently stir in the cooked rice.
  • Sprinkle the golden fried onions on top and serve hot.
