Cooking can turn into a boring mundane job if you don’t experiment with the ingredients in your kitchen. Heard this before? I too tried experimenting this weekend and the result was marvelous.
Being a working married woman, I usually explore my culinary streak on weekends. So last Saturday, I tried to stir up a new recipe for my husband’s lunchbox by using the ingredients that were available at my home.
You can give it any fancy name as you like, I would prefer to call this recipe as ‘Fragrant Chicken Corn Rice’.
Things you’ll need :
3-4 Baby Corns (chop into thin rounds)
1 cup of fresh or frozen corn kernels
2 -3 Chicken Sausages (slice sausages into thin rounds)
2-3 medium sized Onions (finely chopped)
4-5 Garlic Cloves (finely chopped)
6-8 Nos. of Star Anise or Chinese Star Anise
Red Chilli Oil (1 tsp)
Red Chilli Sauce (2 tsp)
Butter ( 2-3 tsp)
1 bowl of Cooked Rice
Red Chilli Flakes (as per taste)
Salt (as per taste)
Black Pepper Powder (as per taste)
1-2 Nos. of Eggs
2-3 Nos.of Green Chillies (finely chopped)
Melt butter in a wok/pan. Add chopped garlic, chopped onions. Fry onions until they turn tender but not brown. While you wait for the onions to get done, shallow fry the thin slices of Chicken sausages in a separate pan until they turn brown & are cooked completely. Remove these slices & keep them aside.
Once the onions are done, add 6-8 star anise, red chilli oil, green chillies, chopped baby corns and corn kernels. Stir & toss it so that the ingredients are mixed well. Cover the pan and cook for 3-4 mins on a slow flame.Now, break the eggs & beat them well using a fork or a hand blender. Pour this on a well-heated pan & fry a thin omelette.Once the omelette is done, roll & cut it into thin long stripes.
Remove the lid from the pan, stir the vegetables & add cooked rice to it. Add fried slices of Chicken Sausages to this. Mix it well. Now add red chilli sauce, salt & red chilli flakes as per your taste. Toss it well, cover & cook for another 2 mins on slow flame.
Garnish the rice with thin stripes of omelette & sprinkle some black pepper powder as per taste.
Do try this recipe & let me know how this turns out for you!
