Corn flour - 1.5 tsp
Chilli sauce - 1/2 tsp
Soya sauce - 1 tsp

* Soak rice in 2.5 cups of water for 30 minutes.Wash the rice well before soaking
  as we are not going to throw away the water used for soaking the rice.
* While rice is getting soaked keep the chicken pieces marinated.For 
  marination add thin boneless chicken strips into a bowl and to this
  add all the ingredients listed above for marination.
* Let the chicken pieces get marinated at least for 30 minutes.
* Take the soaked rice , add it to pressure cooker along with soaked water.
  Add 1 tsp of ghee and 1/2 tsp of salt and pressure cook the rice in high flame
  upto 1 whistle.The rice grains should not become mushy.Do not overcook it.
* Next, heat up 4 to 5 tsp of oil in a wok and stir fry the marinated chicken 
  strips for about 4 to 5 minutes in low to medium flame.Keep aside the 
  fried chicken pieces.
* In the same wok scramble 2 eggs.Optionally you can add a pinch of salt
  and pinch of pepper powder.Keep aside the scrambled eggs.
* Next to the same wok add 1 tbsp of oil.Once the oil is heated well add 
  garlic and ginger and saute them for 1 minute.Next add spring onion
  white part.Do not over fry any of the ingredients.
* Next,add all the vegetables and fry them in high flame.Let the vegetables
  remain half-cooked.That is how it is done for a chicken fried rice.
* While frying the vegetables add vinegar,pepper powder,salt and soya sauce.Adding
  too much of soya sauce will make the rice get dark color.So add only
  1/2 tsp of soya sauce.
* Next add scrambled eggs and rice.Mix it gently.Do not break the rice grains
  while mixing.Finally add fried chicken pieces and spring onion greens.
* And our chicken fried rice is ready to serve.See below for the recipe with
