Quick Easy Chicken Fried Rice

One of the most common street foods we find in India (not china I presume!). I remember me and my cousins getting this parceled from the corner Chinese van as a kid, and devouring the huge plates as we played Mario and Contra on our little master games! In those days, we used to get a huge bowl for just Rs 20. Today we don’t get equally good stuff I believe even for 200 in most restaurants. So why not try it at home? Where you can add all your favorite fresh ingredients and spice it up just the way you like. Once you’ve tried this at home, I promise you’ll think before ordering from outside! (unless of course you’ve no time to cook) I make this with chicken sausages so it’s really quick. You can also choose to add crispy fried chicken or boiled chicken if choosing to cut down some calories.
1 bowl (for 2 people)                 Par-boiled Steamed Rice (95% cooked)
Capsicum                                 1 medium
Onion                                       1 large
Grilled Chicken sausages        2
Tomato                                     1
Cabbage                                   ½ small cabbage
Light Soya sauce                      1 tbsp
Vinegar                                    1/2 tbsp
Sugar                                       ½ tsp
Red Chili powder                     1 tsp
Black pepper                           1 tsp
