Chinese Biryani

Assalamualaikum Warahmatullah!! :)

Chinese Biryani.... fusion of fried rice and malai murgh served with delicious bell pepper sauce.

Oh.... it was amazing experience. No hard rules in the fusion, you can combine your favourite chicken with fried rice. This fusion came in my mind when I tried Alka Bhayana's Red bell pepper sauce and Malai Murgh. It was just perfect combination. 

Ingredients for the fried rice
  • 1) Cooked rice 3 cups 
  • 2) Carrot 1/2 cup 
  • 3) Green beans 1/2 cup
  • 4) Green Pepper 1/4 cup
  • 5) Green Onions 1/4 cup
  • 6) Green peas 1/4 cup
  • 7) Soy sauce 1 tbsp
  • 8) Garlic minced 1 tbsp
  • 9) Ginger minced 1tbsp
  • 10) Salt to taste
  • 11) Oil 3 tbsp
  • 12) Pepper powder 1 tsp

  • Method:
    1)Heat a wok (or any skillet) on high heat. Make sure to keep all the ingredients already. Add oil, followed by spring onions, ginger and garlic.
    2)Stir for 5-6 seconds, add rest of the vegetables.  Make sure nothing burns given that you are cooking in high heat. You want the vegetables to be cooked  but still crunchy which is why it is important to chop the vegetables into small pieces (and also keep them uniform in size). Keep stirring. This whole thing should take around 30-40 seconds.
    3) Next add the rice. Stir until combined.

    4) Next add the soy sauce, pepper and some salt if needed. Stir for the flavors to combine. Make sure you don't stir it too much 'cos that might make the rice mushy.

Ingredients for Malai Masala Murgh
1) Boneless Chicken 750 gms
2) Ginger-garlic paste 1 tbsp
3) Green chillies chopped 1 tbsp
4) Cream 1/2 cup
5) Yogurt 1 cup
6) Cinnamon 1 big piece
7) Cloves 5-6
8) Star anise 2pieces

Method:
Blend the ingredients in a food processor. Marinade the chicken in it for 1 hour.
Heat up a wok /saucepan, transfer the chicken with the marinade to it, add salt and let it cook away. When  the chicken seems almost done, add 1/2 tbsp oil/butter (of course added butter and if there are no health issues, you can increase the butter) and simmer for another few minutes 
The masala will be now coating the chicken and the pieces will be juicy and tender..

Assembling Chinese Biryani
Take an ovenproof dish, layer Chicken over fried rice and add remaining fried rice on top. Drizzle Red Bell Pepper Sauce on top, cover with foil and bake for 10mins on 180c
Serve hot with Red Bell Pepper Sauce
