  • 1½ cups ‏Thai Fragrant Rice
  • 2 tsp ‏ginger, finely chopped
  • 2 tsp ‏garlic, finely chopped
  • 2 tsp ‏green onion (scallions), finely chopped
  • 3 cups chicken stock, ‏made by dissolving 1 cube of  chicken stock (I like Knorr) and 3 cups of water (Alternatively, use 3 cups home made chicken stock if you have it handy)
  • 3 Tbsp ‏sunflower oil

To serve:

  • ‏prepared chicken nuggets, store bought rottiserie chicken or baked chicken, soy sauce, crushed ginger.


I use an electric rice cooker for best results. Alternatively you may use a non stick pot with lid.

  1. Wash and drain the rice.
  2. Heat the oil in the rice cooker.
  3. Add the ginger, garlic and green onion and saute till golden but not brown.
  4. Add the stock cube and mash till dissolved, (if using Knorr chicken cubes) and add the water. Alternatively  add the home made stock.
  5. Add salt as needed. (If your using knorr, you probably just need a dash).
  6. Bring the stock to a boil. Add the rice.
  7. For rice cooker: Close the rice cooker and turn cooker off when it goes to to warm setting.       For stove top pot: Cover pot and reduce heat till the water runs dry and the rice is cooked.
  8. To serve, fork up the rice till  fluffy and drizzle some  light soy sauce over it.
  9. Fry or bake a side of chicken nuggets/ tenders as desired and serve with chili-ginger sauce.
  10. You may garnish with the spring onion greens.
