Crispy Potato and Garlic Rice

As promised in my last post a dish to be made with crispy potato bites is Crispy Potato and Garlic rice. A kind of Indo Chinese dish experimented at Aps Kitchen turned out to be delicious.

Here is what we need:

2 cups Basmati rice, cooked
1 cup Green Capsicum, cubed into small pieces
1.5 teaspoon Chili Garlic sauce
2.5 - 3 teaspoon Soy sauce
3 tbsp garlic finely chopped
3 tbsp onions finely chopped
2 tbsp spring onions
1 tsp celery
2 green chillies
1.5 teaspoon Tomato sauce/ketchup
¼ th tsp vinegar
1/2 teaspoon Crushed chili flakes
1 tbsp spring onion greens
Salt to taste
1 tablespoon  oil +1 tbsp sesame oil


Method:
Soak rice in water for 20 minutes and then cook it until done. Make sure the rice is not at all mushy!
Spread the rice on a plate and allow it to cool a bit.
While the rice is cooling lets get cooking the dish, heat a pan add cooking oil and sesame oil.
To this add finely chopped garlic and when it gets golden brown add spring onions, green chillies,celery and onions and sauté until cooked.
Add in the capsicum and make sure they cook but are crunchy.
Now time to add the sauces, add tomato sauce,soy sauce,chilli garlic sauce, vinegar and mix well and stir it for a minute.
Add the crispy potatoes (saving 3 tbsp for later use)and toss well so that all sauces get coated well to the potatoes.
Now add the cooked rice and salt to taste(be careful while adding salt as all the sauces have salt in it) and mix well making sure the rice doesn’t break. Keep covered for 3-4 minutes.
Add spring onion greens, 3 tbsp crispy potatoes and some garlic chips and Serve immediately with any Indo chinese side dish or just as it is.
Notes:
You can add extra green chillies if you wish for a spicy dish.
To make garlic chips slice the garlic and fry them crisp with 1 tbsp oil. And you can use the same oil to make the rice.
