  • rice
  • chicken stock
  • curry
  • fried rice spices
  • thyme
  • butter
  • salt
  • white pepper
  • white onions diced
  • carrots diced
  • green pepper diced
  • yellow bell pepper diced
  • red bell pepper diced
  • runner beans cut into round pieces
  • green peas
  • sweet corn
  • seasoning
  • liver meat, cooked and diced

Lets Cook
1. Put a pot on heat with the chicken stock, water, salt, seasoning, white pepper, thyme, plenty curry and fried rice spice. (Note: the two last ingredients will have great influence on the colour so if you want a white fried rice put very little curry and little or no fried rice spice, little chicken stock which means more seasoning, i love using butter but some people prefer vegetable oil). Add butter. Cover and allow to boil.
2. Pour in the rice. (NOTE: if you are parboiling the rice, at this point you should have already parboiled it with ordinary water before pouring it into the chicken stock for the final cooking stage,don't put too much water and make sure you don't overcook it).
3.Put a pan on heat. Add butter and little oil. When it is hot, pour in onions. Stir for a minute and add all the vegetables including the liver. Add little salt and seasoning. Stir for a while, don't cook the vegetables. Remove from heat and set aside.
4. Check your rice. taste and adjust seasoning. When the water is totally dried up. Pour in the vegetables and stir with a wooden spatula until it is mixed but do not mash or turn too hard so you dont press the rice.
5. Your fried rice is ready. Serve with moi moi, salad or plantain with your chicken or turkey.
Enjoy your holidays my friends...
