- Next, cook your basmati rice by following the instructions on the packaging and put aside once ready to cool off.
- After, heat up some vegetable oil in a large frying pan. Add the chillies, cover, and cook until blackened. In the meantime, finely grate your ginger, chop your garlic and onions, and add to the pan. Stir and cook uncovered until softened, being careful not to burn the garlic.
- Finally, place the chicken and sauce on a serving platter, add the chopped spring onion on top and serve alongside your rice. Voila, your fragrant chilli chicken is now ready to be enjoyed in front of a good movie –prepare to wow your guests!
- Once the chicken is ready, add it to the pan and stir in the soy sauce, vinegar, and pinch of salt as well if needed. Simmer until the sauce has thickened and all the ingredients are mixed.
