    Thank you for the recipy.  I made the quick version and it was excellent.  It took me 50 minutes to get the creamy consistency.  I added egg and cooked for a further 2 minutes.

    this was great and the kids loved it. did the quicker version mentioned in the tip, but it still needed a full hour, plus another cup of water. i also added some stock paste, soy sauce, and fish sauce to the rice toward the end of cooking time. Will become a staple.

    tmrc_emoticons.) Thankyou for the feedback, I'm glad you enjoyed the recipe and thanks for providing a picture, my computer skills don't extend that far. lol.As with most recipes they are just the basis to add your own take on them. I thought about adding stock to the ingredients list, there is a great Asian style one on here, I think it is based on a Matt Moran recipe if I remember correctly which would be ideal.

  • I saw this recipe this

    I saw this recipe this morning and it was just what I felt like eating tonight. Thank you!

    I did make a few modifications though as I don't follow recipes well tmrc_emoticons.D , but I think it would have been just as tasty as is.

    I added chicken stock to the water mix with the rice - 1 cup - and then an additional half cup halfway though cooking as it did need some more liquid. I also doubled the chicken sauces and marinated my chicken strips in it for the 2.5 hours of rice cooking time (and I probably had more than 300grms of chicken as well). I added the entire marinade to the chicken after the initial sautee time and when serving poured the excess liquid over the top at the end as a soup/sauce. 

    Anyways, it was very yummy and I will make again. 

    Sorry no garnishing in my pic as shallots don't agree with me.
