    wok. Set aside. 


 



5. With the same wok, mix in the remaining ingredients A 

    (dry ingredients). Stir fry until fragrant. Add in rice and stir until 
    just combined. Turn the heat off. 





6. Move the rice into rice cooker. Pour in water. Add in chicken 

    and cook as usual. 





For Sauces

    Stirring constantly until sugar and salt dissolved. Remove from
    heat and add in vinegar. Stir until just combined. Taste-test 
    the sauce and adjust it to your taste. Set aside. 

2. In food processor, add in green onion, old ginger, coriander 

    and chili. Process until smooth. Transfer all into wet
    ingredients and mix well.
