Vegetarian Chicken Rice – 素食海南鸡饭

Here’s something for our vegetarian friends! The recipe is simple, and easy to do. Getting the chilli sauce proper is key, so we did our own special chilli sauce to go with the deep fried vegetarian chicken drumsticks, and it hits the right notes. We used Kinmemai better white rice, which enhances both the taste and nutrition of tender rice grains for a moist, creamy texture.

Finally, we drizzle a simple yet tasty sauce over the cut vegetarian chicken and serve. The end result is nice, fluffy, and perfect for (vegetarian) chicken rice! A tasty treat that satisfies the whole family.
