Let's start cooking!

Cucumber, shallots and chili in a bowl

Step 1 - Pickle the achar

  • In a small bowl, stir white vinegar and sugar together until the sugar dissolves.
  • Add in sliced cucumber, sliced carrot, 2 sliced shallots, sliced chili padi and 1 sliced large red chili into the bowl, cover and leave to pickle in the refrigerator for 3 hours.
    Buy ready-made achar in supermarkets to save time.
Mutton in a frying pan

Fry the mutton

Step 4 - Add rice

  • Add in cooked rice, breaking it apart with a spatula and fry for 5 minutes.
    It is best to use leftover rice from the night before. Refrigerated rice loses its moisture content, so your fried rice will not be too mushy and wet, resulting in a better texture.
