Chop the veggies finely and keep aside.

For Chicken Strips
Cook chicken along with red chilly powder, turmeric powder and salt. Cut Into thin strips and set aside.

For cooking the rice
Rinse rice very well till the water runs clear of starch. Soak rice in water for 30 minutes. Drain and keep aside.
In a pot, bring to a gentle boil 4.5 to 5 cups of water with salt and 2 to 3 drops of oil.
Add the soaked and drained rice to the hot water.
On a low to medium flame cook the rice without the lid.
When the rice becomes just cooked, remove the pot from fire and drain the rice.
Cover the rice and keep aside till the rice cools completely.

For Egg Strips
Beat eggs with a whisk in a small bowl and season with salt and pepper, to taste.
Heat butter in a medium frying pan over medium heat and make an omelette using half the beaten eggs.
 Turn out onto a plate to cool (do not fold omelette).
Repeat process with remaining beaten eggs.
Remove from frying pan and cut into thin strips.

Heat butter in a wok or a pan.
Add the garlic and saute for some seconds. No need to brown the garlic. At this stage, you can also add ginger, if you prefer.

Then add all the finely chopped veggies.
 Increase the flame on a high and stir fry the veggies on a high flame.
If you cannot handle stir frying on a high flame, then stir fry on a medium flame.
You have to continuously toss and stir while frying so that the veggies are uniformly cooked and do not get burnt.
The veggies have to be stir fried, till they are almost cooked and yet retain their crunchiness and crispiness.

Add the soy sauce, salt and pepper, chicken and egg. Stir quickly and add the rice. Stir fry for a few minutes till the sauce has coated the fried rice well. Keep a check when adding salt, as soy sauce already has salt in it. Stir fry together for about 5 minutes, Serve hot.
