Chef's Tip

It is best to use a non-stick pan for this recipe to avoid the rice from burning the bottom then leaving the rice on top still raw. For a rice cooker version, follow the procedure until step 3, then transfer into a rice cooker and allow to cook. Add the peas and bell pepper then steam for another 5 minutes.
