Chinese fried rice

Chinese is one of our favorite cuisine. When we were in New Jersey we used to have Chinese at least once in a week. After moving to Los Angeles, we dint find any good Chinese restaurant, so i started cooking Chinese at home. It dint taste like proper Chinese food but my husband loved the fried rice which I made. Here is the recipe for all of u.........
We need:

Shallots 3
Carrot diced 1/4 cup
Green peas 1/2 cup
Bean sprouts 1 cup
Chopped green onion 1/2 cup
Soy sauce 1/ 8 cup
Chili sauce 1/8 cup
Salt to taste
Oil 3sps
Black pepper 1/4 sp
Cooked rice 5 cups


Heat wok and add oil.
Now add chopped shallots, carrots, peas and mix well.
Now add Rice and mix well.
If u cook the rice 1 day before, cool it and refrigerate it.
Remove the next day and prepare the fried rice. It tastes better than the freshly cooked rice.
After adding rice, add chili sauce, soy sauce, salt and crushed black pepper.
Add sprouts and mix well.
Switch off the stove and garnish with chopped green onion.

Chicken puffs

Yesterday i made chicken curry for lunch and some of the curry was left out. Today we were not interested to eat the leftovers. Then I thought of making chicken puffs with the leftover curry.
And they turned out very good and tasty. Here goes the recipe for u all...........
We need:

Puff pasrty sheets
Chicken curry
Baking tray


Defrost the puff pastry sheets and cut them to the desired size.
Top the puff sheet with the spoon full of chicken curry. Make sure the chicken pieces are very small.
Now fold them as shown in the below picture.
Place them side by side in the baking tray.

Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees and bake the puffs for 10 mits on each side.
U will know whether the puffs are done, if not done bake them for another 5 to 10 mits.
Serve hot with any ketchep or sauce.
