Chicken Fried Rice / Restaurant Style Chicken Fried Rice

Standard

Fried rice is one of the popular dish, it can be prepared in a street food and also the other ways. Commonly we like to have fried rice from a street vendor, it tastes different and good. We use to have it at least once in two months, but for almost a year, the shop was closed. And so, thought of preparing it at home and the taste was too good and more similar to that one. Also, this is a perfect for lunch box. Let me share the recipe…

Taking this to Fiesta Friday #160 hosted by Angie@thenovicegardener.

Got an invite for Dragon Boat Festival at Taj Vivanta, MG Road, Bangalore – got to know that it’s a Chinese festival through social media. But after reaching Taj Vivanta got a clear picture about Dragon food festival from their Chef TONG (Executive Chinese Master Chef of Taj Vivanta) – The Chinese Dragon Boat Festival has a history dating back to thousands of years, Duonuvu Festival is usually celebrated on the fifth day of the fifth month on the Chinese lunar calendar. It is one of the most important festivals in China, celebrated by colorful and lively races featuring narrow boats shaped like dragons.

I have been in Kuala Lampur for almost 1.5 yrs, at that time we use to have Chinese food, which liked to the core. But after I am away from Kuala Lampur and not it’s been almost 10 years, I had food at few Chinese Restaurant and nothing was upto the food that we get in Kuala Lampur. But after that the very first time I was about to have an authentic Chinese food was in this Dragon Food Festival which was specially created by Chef TONG, who has been here in Bangalore for almost decades.

The restaurant was fully decorated right from the interiors till the bowls and plates they served us. The place was calm and peaceful, we enjoyed the place and more over the food. The chef prepared specially sweet corn soup for my kids, made the day more special. Also he explained about the food they served us and also about the festival. The Dragon Boat Festival was mind blowing and we had a wonderful time there. Let me share the food we had along with the pictures…

  • Jasmine Tea – First of all they started with a jasmine tea, the aroma, taste was awesome. No sugar was added but I never ever had the bitter taste, as the tea was brewed to perfection.
  • Starters

o   Salt and Pepper Prawns – The prawns was very crispy and crunchy as they were fried with the skin and coated with loads of garlic and ginger. When accompanied with hot tomato sauce it was excellent. My kids too liked it to the core.

o   Deep Fried Seafood Salad Spring Roll – Usually I like spring roll, but as a seafood lovers, I liked the seafood salad spring roll. The spiciness and flavor was well balanced as good for kids and adults.

  • Double boil Chicken with apple & Ginseng (Chinese herb) soup – We all liked this soup to the core and would suggest everyone a must to try. The flavor, taste and aroma was too good. When I asked about the chef – he told us that they take almost 2 hrs to prepare this soup. The apple, chicken and ginseng was cooked excellent as it gets melted in the mouth. A perfect soup for everyone.
  • Stir fry slice chicken with seasonal Mango and Bell peppers – The chicken was juicy and the mangoes were soft but not soggy with the bell peppers. It was too good as the name, which will be a super duper kids among kids.
  • Steamed fillet grouper with black pepper and bean sauce – The fish was softly cooked and was covered with the black pepper and bean sauce.
  • Diced Tenderloin in yakiniku sauce and twist of mint – The flavor, aroma, color and texture was awesome. It was soft as it gets melted in the mouth.
  • Traditional glutinous rice dumplings Zongzi – The very first time I had this rice and liked it. Soft, sticky and melts in the mouth.
  • Steamed Mango Dumpling – Dumplings are usually too good in Chinese cuisine, Imagine a mango dumpling, mango lovers go crazy for it. A must to try.
  • Chilled Mango Alponso Pudding – No words for the pudding, perfect texture, taste and color.
  • Coconut Ice cream with Alponso Mango – Coconut Ice cream, very first time had such a delicious coconut ice cream served with small pieces of Alponso Mango. When consumed both together – no words need to find out something new (Heavenly). I am drooling now…

Burnt Garlic Rice

Standard

Recently when I was talking with one of my friend, she suggested me to try Burnt Garlic Rice. It was very new to me, as usual I started surfing for the recipe and then planned to prepare, just as a little twist I thought of preparing it with Brown Long grain (Basmathi) Rice.

The flavor, color and texture of the rice was too good. I made this out purely with OliveOil, #JoinOliveOilRevolution. I would say that my kids was just ok with this rice but I and my hubby liked it. I accompanied it with Fried Tiger Prawn, Coleslaw and Potato wedges. Let us move on to the recipe…
