Method Ff Cooking

Heat The Oil In Frying Pan

1. Marinate the chicken with salt and pepper for half an hour. Heat the oil in a deep bottom frying pan. Add the red chilies, onion and the chopped garlic. Saute for two to three minutes and then add the chicken and the mushrooms. Fry for three to five minutes and then add the sauce that has been made and kept aside. Make sure that the sauce coats the chicken and the mushroom well. Do not cover, and cook on a medium flame for ten minutes. A medium flame will ensure that the sauce gets into the chicken and the mushroom and adds the flavor well.

2. Once the chicken looks half cooked, you need to add the carrots, spring onions and the zucchini . Sprinkle salt sparingly. Remember that soy sauce contains salt already, so too much of salt can ruin the dish.  Stir occasionally and sprinkle a dash of sugar. Add the water and cook for fifteen minutes. If you think you want to thicken the sauce, you may now add the corn flour and cook for another five to six minutes.

The Chicken Looks Half Cooked

3. Serve it hot with a bowl of steaming hot fragranced rice for a rich aromatic gourmet experience. You may choose jasmine or rosemary fragrances for the rice. A stickier variety would work the best in this case. Green tea is a great drink to complement this recipe. It refreshes the senses and balances the flavors in your mouth. So, have a bowl of rice with your delicious chicken and mushroom dish, with a cup of steaming hot green tea.  Enjoy your Chinese moment of bliss!
