  • Hi! Maria,

    Thanks,
    Divya

    • Hi! Maria.
      Sorry abt asking the question abt the red chilli paste. I did not see that you had already mentioned it.

  • dera Mariya,

    On Sunday i tried ot your mixed fried rice(version 2) aand gingerchicken.
    Ginger chicken was amazing, ummmmmmmmmmmmm.
    fried rice ,i had used the ordinary biriyani rice so it wasnt that beautiful to see, but iit was delicious,
    Thanks a lot dear

    • Hi Reepna

      Really glad to know that you liked the chicken dish. Thanks for letting me know about it :)

      Hope the fried rice looks pretty next time you make it ;)

    • Hi Anju

      You can make the ginger chicken as a dry preparation or with gravy.

      I’ve mentioned in the recipe about the gravy. I made it dry, that’s why you don’t see any gravy in the above picture.

      Cheers
      Maria

      • @Maria, hi maria..i would like to try this recipe…bt i dont have kashirii red chilly wid me right now.so it okay..if i dont add that??its only for the colour purpose right…adding ordinary red chilly would be a good idea?

        • Hi Teenu

          Its ok to add ordinary chilly powder. As you’ve said Kashmiri chilly powder is added mainly for the color.

          Hope you’ll like the recipe…

          Cheers
          Maria
