  1. In a wok or saucepan, heat the cooking oil. Then, proceed to fry the shallots and ginger until aromatic.
  2. Next, add chicken, carrot and sliced mushrooms. Fry for 5 minutes or until chicken turns tender.
  3. Add sesame oil, gravy mix and allow it to simmer for 3 minutes on medium heat. Once that is ready, set it aside and prepare the rice.
  4. In a rice cooker, cook the rice with 600 ml of water and place the kalian on top. When the rice is just about cooked (all the water has been absorbed and rice grains are fluffed up), about 15 – 20 minutes later, add in the chicken that was cooked earlier.
  5. Toss and mix the chicken and rice thoroughly to combine.
  6. Then, leave the rice cooker to cook with the lid on for another 10 minutes until the flavours from the gravy is fully absorbed into the rice. Keep warm until served.
  7. Finally, sprinkle over the spring onion and fried salted fish (optional) before serving.
  8. For some added spice, chop some bird’s eye chillies and serve it in some light soy sauce.
