  • 3 cups basmati rice washed well and drained (I used Sella)
  • 750 gm boneless chicken cut into small strips or squares
  • 1 tsp black pepper powder
  • 1 tsp white pepper powder
  • Salt to taste
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 25 gm butter
  • 4 cloves garlic crushed
  • 4 spring onions
  • 2 carrots peeled and julienned or cut into small cubes
  • 15-20 green beans chopped
  • 1/2 cup frozen green peas
  • 4 eggs
  • 4 tbsp soya sauce
  • 2 tbsp red chilli sauce
  • White pepper black pepper and salt to taste


  • Cook the rice in lots of water till just done. Do not overcook. Drain the rice, wash well to stop the cooking. Allow it to sit in the drainer till all the water is gone.
  • Spread on a big plate to allow it to cool completely till use.
  • Toss up the chicken with all the spice powders. Heat the oil in a large wok. Fry the chicken pieces on high flame till cooked and stock is dried up. Drain and set aside.
  • Meanwhile, cut the spring onion bulbs, thinly and separate the greens. Slice the greens up and reserve.
  • In the same wok - continue on high heat - melt the butter. Add the garlic and sliced spring onion bulbs and and saute for a minute.
  • Add the carrots and the beans and cook for another five minutes. Add the peas, break in the eggs and give it a good whisk. Sprinkle in the seasonings generously.
  • Now add the chicken back along with the soya sauce and red chilli sauce. Toss well. Check seasoning. Add a little extra since while adding the rice, it will get adjusted.
  • Add the rice in three batches. With each addition, toss well using two spatulas to coat the rice well, ensuring not to break the rice.
  • Finally add in the spring onion greens and switch off. Serve hot.


I whisk the eggs along with the vegetables just to make the girls eat the eggs. You can scramble them separately with salt and pepper and add into the rice.
Adjust vegetable quantity as per your requirement.
To make mixed fried rice, you can fry small prawns (around 250 gm), seasoned with salt and pepper till done and add it just before the rice is added.
