Ground Chicken Fried Rice and Happy Thanksgiving

I just can’t believe that Thanksgiving is round the corner! This is the time to give thanks to other, to recognize all the people, and things for which I thankful. First of all I want to give to thank to all my blogger friends .  Your encouragement keeps me going for all those years. Your lovely comments always make me happy, and inspire me to write more. I want to say sorry to all of you because, I rarely reply to your comment, but I always read them. Again I want to give thanks for those. Here I’m sharing one rice of fried rice. If you are not going to Thanksgiving dinner, or not hosting any, like me who are just spending a quiet time on Thanksgiving night, you can try this fried rice. *smile*

One pound ground chicken(or turkey)
One and half cups Basmati rice
One big potato/four-five small round potatoes
One fourth cup raisins
One fourth dried cranberry(optional)
One fourth cup dried cherry (optional)
One fourth cup cashew 

One fourth cup green peas

Three tbsp. sugar

Two green chili (optional)

One and half tsp. garam masala powder (or you can mix cinnamon powder, clove powder, green cardamom powder, or you can get it any Indian store)

One/Two bay leaves
Two/three cloves
Four/five green cardamom
One inch cinnamon stick
One medium sized onion
One tbsp. ginger paste
Two tsp. garlic paste
Pinch of turmeric powder
Salt to taste
Four tbsp. of oil (you can also use ghee)

Wash the rice, and soak in water for half an hour. 

In the mean time,thinly slice the onion.

Peel the potato. If you are using a big potato , then cut the potato into medium big chunk.

If you are using small potato just peel them. 

Take a heavy bottomed pan, heat two tablespoon of oil in medium. 

Add the potato. Add pinch of turmeric powder, and salt. 

Fry in medium heat until slightly brown. Take the potato out, keep aside. 

In the same pan, add another two table spoon oil. 

Add all the whole spices, and slightly stir. When the fine aroma start coming, add the onion. 

Stir it, and let it cook covering the pan. Stir the onion occasionally to prevent burn on the bottom. 

When the oil starts oozing out, add garlic and ginger paste. Mix well and  add the chicken, and stir constantly. 

When chicken starts making lumps, add the garam masala power, and mix well. 

Then add all the dry fruits,sugar, peas,and nut. Mix everything well. 

Add the rice on the top of the mixture. Add one cup of water. 

Lower the heat to medium low. 

Cover the pan, and let it cook until the total water gets absorbed. 

Watch in the mean time. 

If you need more water add little. Do not add a large amount of water. 

It will take fifteen to twenty minutes to cook. Serve hot.
