- 700g chicken thigh

- 500g rice or glutinous rice

- 80g wheat flour

- 1 egg

- A few shallots


- 1 teaspoon seasoning powder

- A little bit of sugar

- 1 teaspoon sesame oil

- 1 teaspoon soy sauce

- 1/2 teaspoon pepper

- 1/2 teaspoon chili powder

Ingredients Proccesing 

Cut the shallots into thin slices.

- Cut the scallions into small pieces.


Step 1:

- Wash 500g rice and put them into a cooker to cook. You can adjust standard water level for cooking rice which usually fluctuate between 2.5 cm and 2.8 cm. However, this can also be changed due amount of the rice or different kinds of the rice, so you can change the water level to be suitable for you.

Step 2:

- Use a fork to make small holes on the chicken thighs, this will shorten frying time.

- After finishing, put all the chicken thighs in a bowl and marinate them with 1 teaspoon seasoning powder, 1/2 teaspoon pepper, 1/2 teaspoon chili powder, a little bit of sugar and 1 teaspoon sesame oil, then mix well. 

- Next, use a piece of food wrap to cover up the bowl and marinate them within 30 minutes.

Step 3:

- Pour a small amount of cooking oil in a pan to stir-fry the shallots slices with small fire so that they are not brunt. After they have had good smell, take them out of the pan.

- Next, add a large amount of the cooking oil to the pan (approximately half of the pan) to fry the chicken thighs (*Note: fry them with small fire.)

Step 5:

- When the rice is ready, put it in a bowl and allow to it cool. Then crack an egg into the bowl of rice, next add 1 teaspoon soy sauce and a little bit of wheat flour to the rice part, then mix well.

Step 6:

- Line a clean piece of clean nylon to a flat surface. Then put a part of cooked rice in there and use a spoon to make it a thin rice layer. (*Tip: lining a piece of nylon will help you to wrap the chicken thigh in the rice layer easily). Next put the scallion pieces and stir-fried shallot slices in the middle of the rice layer.

- Then put the remaining part of wheat flour in a plate and roll the chicken thighs over a layer of the wheat flour.

- Continue to put the chicken thigh in the middle of the rice layer, then wrap it in the rice layer as the image below.
