Chinese Fried Rice

Work is up to my neck. I feel the stress and I feel like giving up work.  In my profession, work means working from home as well. At times during weekends to meet deadline. The peak is now and will continue for another two weeks. So cooking has to be as simple as possible. Simple meaning making fried rice. Not the same Chinese Fried Rice but another type made with chicken roast, water chestnuts and eggs. 

3 cups cooked rice
3 to 4 pieces chicken roast/ham/bacon - diced
5 water chestnuts or 1/4 turnip - sliced into thin long stripes
3 eggs 
2-3 spring onions - shredded
6 garlic - chopped
1-2 red chilies - remove seeds and sliced into thin long stripes
Pepper and salt for taste
Oil as needed
1 tsp chicken stock (optional)

Scramble eggs and dish out.
In the same oil, fry chicken till crispy.
Add in garlic and continue to stir for about 1-2 mins.
Add rice and seasoning.
Quickly stir to combine all the ingredients.
Lastly add eggs, spring onion and chilies.
A few more stirs and remove from heat.

  10. Any stressful day, fried rice comes handy as a life saver!!
    Your fried rice looks pristine, fresh and yummy!! Love the clicks! Also "water chestnut" is a innovative addition, it's sweet and sour flavor is to die for.
    The last time I had water chestnut, It was in a Mumbai restaurant where I ordered "Kashmiri Pulao", along with the rest of the regular ingredient, chestnuts were a major part - It was mildly sweet and tasted nice. Hence I can imagine the taste in fried rice!! I'm too hooked to the logic that eggs are a must in fried rice, if not it is not a fried rice :-)
