Rice Ingredients

1½ cups basmati long grain rice

Stock Ingredients

2¼ cups hot water
1 dessertspoon Massel® chicken stock powder
1 level teaspoon chilli paste (or bottled Galiko® chilli sauce) – more or less to taste
1 dessertspoon shrimp paste (may substitute anchovy paste)
1 teaspoon Gourmet Garden® garlic and ginger sachet
1 tablespoon fish sauce
½ teaspoon Chinese five spices
Dash of pepper and salt
Liberal dash of red wine (or sherry)

Other Ingredients

2 stalks celery, finely diced
1 small red capsicum, finely diced
1 onion, finely diced
1 carrot, finely diced
4 leaves Chinese cabbage, finely diced
1½ cups cooked chicken, diced into small pieces
250g cooked, peeled small prawns


  1. Quickly fry the uncooked rice in a little rice bran oil over a high heat in a wok or large heavy base frying pan for 3 – 4 minutes so the rice gets a toasted tinge.  Remove from heat and set aside.  (This step is optional.)
  2. Make up the stock by combining ingredients into the water.
  3. Place the rice and the stock into the large inner pot.  Bring to the boil on the stove on a moderate heat stirring continually.  When boiling, stop stirring and allow to boil for 1 minute uncovered.  Then place the stainless steel lid on the inner pot and boil for a further 1 minute.
  4. Place into the DreamPot for the required cooking time.
  5. While the rice is cooking, finely dice the vegetables and dice the chicken.
  6. Once the rice is cooked in the DreamPot, heat a little oil in a wok or frying pan.  Quickly stir-fry the vegetables, tossing regularly.  Add the chicken and prawns and toss together to heat through.
  7. Fluff the cooked rice up with a fork, then combine the rice into the vegetable mixture in the wok and serve.

Note:  Prepare and cook the rice at any convenient time.  Stir-fry the vegetables and combine with the rice just prior to serving.
