Vegetarian Chicken Rice

This is my very first version of vegetarian chicken rice. For this recipe, it uses star anise and cinnamon. The other version that I had is the Hainanese-style.
For the chilli sauce, I have two versions, one with garlic and shallot and the other without without. Serve with deep-fried vegetarian drumsticks or steamed king oyster mushroom (vegetarian version of steamed chicken) .

Preparation: 5 mins, Cooking time: 15 mins

Ingredients (serves 2)
° 200g rice, washed and drained
° 25g ginger, finely chopped
° 3 pandan leaves (screwpine), tied into a knot
° 1 tablespoon sesame oil
° 1 teaspoon cartino oil (optional)
° 1 clove
° 1 star anise
° ½ cinnamon stick
° ½ teaspoon salt
° 400ml water

1. Combine all the ingredients into an electric rice cooker, mix well and turn it on.
2. When done leave the cooked rice to rest, covered, for 5-10 minutes. Fluff with a fork and serve hot with deep-fried vegetarian drumsticks, cucumber slices and chicken rice chilli.

1. Coratino oil gives the rice a light yellow colour.
2. Clove, star anise, cinnamon stick can be omitted, if desired.
