Chicken Fried Rice

I prepare fried rice with the Shredded chicken which is available here in U.S. in packets. But the disadvantage with keema is that you cannot wash it. It is already pulpy in nature and washing deteriorates the taste.

Ingredients:

Basmati Rice : 2 cup (wash and soak; Cook with 1.5 cup water along with salt)
Spring Onions : 1 Bunch (Chop the white and green part into 2 bowls) or Onion : 1 medium size
Carrot : 1
Beans : 10-15
Green Peas : 1/2 cup
Garlic : 10- 15 (Crushed and Chopped)
Oil : 2 tbsp.
Egg : 3
Shredded Chicken or Boneless Chicken cut into tiny pieces (1/2 kg)
Coarse Pepper Powder : 3 tbsp.
Soya Sauce : 1 tbsp
Salt according to taste

Procedure:
1. In a pan add oil and add chopped garlic; cook till it turns slightly brown.
2. Add chopped onions or white of spring onion.
3. Once they are cooked add finely chopped beans; carrot and green peas.
4. Once it is slightly cooked add the insides of eggs and cook till it has a texture of scrambled eggs.
5. Add chopped chicken and cook till it releases water and the water is completely absorbed.
6. Add coarse pepper powder, Soya sauce and salt.
7. In the mean time cook basmati rice along with salt.
8. Mix the cooked meat and veggie mix with the rice.
9. Garnish with green part of spring onions.
