This really popular dish is well worth making. The flavours are fantastic and it is fairly easy to make. It is cheap if you leave the prawns out and use all chicken instead. It makes a great family dinner especially midweek when the pennies can be tight. It will also impress friends and family if you make it for a special occasion.
You must use long grain rice for this, basmati or jasmine rice won’t work.
You may want to add a little salt, I didn’t.
Fill a cup with brown sugar then place it in a pot. Fill the same cup with soy sauce (not dark) and add this to the sugar. Cook until it takes on a syrup like consistency. It will keep for up to a month in a sealed jar. Allow to cool before sealing the jar.
