There are some instructions written inside the video. To see them, watch the video on a Desktop or Laptop computer, those watching on a mobile device cannot see Youtube annotations.

Ingredients
•Rice – 3 cigar cups | 750g
•Vegetable Oil
•Chicken (whole chicken or chicken drumsticks)
•Cow Liver (100g)
•Plain Yellow Curry Powder — no chilli (enough to colour the rice)
•Green Beans (a handful)
•5 medium sized carrots
•Salt (to taste)
•Onions – 3 medium sized bulbs
•Seasoning — 3 big Maggi/Knorr cubes & Thyme (1 tablespoon)

Notes:
– Chicken is the best meat for preparing Nigerian Fried Rice. Cut yours into desired pieces. Grilled Chicken video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=holpA4AteBQ
– If your vegetables are too tough, you may want to boil them for a bit instead of soaking.
– After soaking/boiling the vegetables in hot water, pour in a sieve to drain (this step was missed in the video)
– The curry powder is merely for coloring so this is not the hot and spicy Indian curry!
– Use a generous quantity of water when parboiling the rice.

VERY IMPORTANT:
Nigerian Fried Rice can go bad very quickly. Eat it once you finish preparing it. Or refrigerate immediately. If you want to serve it at a party, please cook it very close to the serving time, if not, it will go bad! It will be good for up to 48 hours if refrigerated.

FAQ
1. Why did you fry the rice separately? Why can’t you just fry it all at once?

I fried the rice in small batches because that’s the only way to actually get every single grain of the rice fried for a few minutes. That way the flavour of the ingredients will go into the rice and make your fried rice taste better.

If you “fry” them all at once, all you are doing is basically mixing everything together and your fried rice won’t taste as delicious as when you fry in small batches. Do you want to prepare Mixed Rice? Then mix all the ingredients at once. There’s a HUGE difference between Fried Rice and Mixed Rice :DDD

In Nigeria, when we want to cook rice (Jollof, Fried etc) for a large crowd we do it outside with a large gas stove known as osi ite in Igbo lol. You still get to fry in batches
(that are much bigger than mine, of course) because the intense heat can handle the larger quantity. If you don’t, the rice will taste like … cardboard, yea that’s the only thing I can think of … lol!

Give your fried rice a chance to taste as delicious as it should … Fry in batches.

If you think it’s too much work then maybe cooking fried rice is not for you :DDD

2. Is the liver compusory?
I can’t stand liver but I don’t mind it at all in this recipe. Maybe because it is diced. It adds a lot of flavour to this recipe and without it, fried rice tastes kind of bland. Take this from a liver hater :DD

So, unless you are vegetarian, do yourself a favour and add liver to your fried rice, you’ll love it!
