Cook rice & prepare ingredients
Using absorption method, cook rice. Place rice in a saucepan with 1.5 cups of cold water. Bring to the boil until air bubbles have formed and liquid has absorbed. Cover pot with lid, remove from heat and set aside for a minimum of 15 minutes. Next, cut chicken into thin strips. Top and tail beans and cut into 5cm pieces. Cut eggplants into rounds. Thinly slice garlic then deseed and finely dice chilli (optional). In a bowl combine the oyster sauce, soy sauce, sugar and a splash of tap water and set to one side.
