  • When you say cook chicken and prawns and egg,what do you mean?i mean how are we supposed to cook?if you added that too it’d be a great help.

    • Hi Neethu,

      I usually boil the chicken with salt & pepper, stir fry the prawns with salt & pepper and scramble the eggs with salt & pepper. Hope this helps..


  • Thanks a ton Maria… You are doing an awesome and yummy job :)

  • Hi Maria, I am new to your blog, but have taken an instant liking to ur page n recipes. i find all recipes explained in detail which makes it easy to go through the process :) for this particular recipe, can u temme what kind of rice v need to use please. tnx.

  • Hi Vani,

    Thank you so much :)

    Which method you use for cooking rice, do you strain excess water or you let the water dry completely?

    Also try using a deep and wide vessel while cooking rice, so that there is enough space, for the rice to expand while cooking.


  • Hello Maria

  • Daaa….
    Relly nice recipe. Only thing i added etc was chopped onion w/vegs. Came out fantastic. Yum yumm nnu kazhichu. Mariakuttyykku jai :)

  • Mariakuttyyeh..
    Yea Paulas recipes are good but very fattening & rich also.

    My suggestion.. if trying her recipes… try to cut the amount of fat & sugar. Everybody mostly here in U.S agrees her recipes are yummy, but little unhealthy also :)

  • Maria,

    I tried this recipe and it came out well. I made it in a wok and that kind of helps the rice to fry better and get incorporated with the other ingredients in a cohesive manner. I also added Chinese chilly paste as my husband likes it really hot. There’s a particular sauce called the Sriracha sauce thats extremely spicy but gives a good Chinese flavor. Not sure if you get it in Bahrain but its available in the US.

    Also if you check out paula deen’s recipes on foodnetwork.com, her cakes and desserts are usually very yummy.

    • Hi Liz,

      Thanks for trying out the recipe dear :)

      I’m hearing about the Sriracha sauce for the first time, I will check whether its available here during my next grocery shopping. Thanks for the info.

      Yep, I’ve seen some of the recipes of Paula Deen but I havent tried any. Looks like I should :)
