Bringhe is the local version of paella. I like serving special dishes from time to time. The eggs are not super hard boiled that's why they were breaking apart. I like them this way. This was quite easy to make compared to paella and I made it on the stove top.
chicken (I used small adobo cut)
chorizo (I used Purefoods canned)
3 cups glutinous (malagkit) rice
some turmeric powder
red and green bell peppers, cored and diced
2.5 cups water and a chicken cube
1 cup coconut milk
salt and pepper
hard boiled eggs
frozen mixed vegetables (optional)
Let's do this!
Heat oil in a pan. Fry the chicken and set aside. Don't over fry, just enough to cook it and get rid of the blood. You are going to cook it again later. Drain the oil.
In the same pan, heat some oil again and saute the onions until transparent. Add the garlic and chorizo. Saute for a minute. Add the mixed vegetables. I added this because I wanted some veggies in our dish.
Add rice and turmeric. Stir to coat the rice with oil. Add the peppers and chicken. Mix well.
In another pan, combine the water, chicken cube, coconut milk and bay leaf. Bring to a simmer. Make sure that the chicken cube dissolves. Season with salt and pepper and pour into the rice mixture.
Cover and simmer until rice is done. Check every once in a while. Remove bay leaf, transfer to a platter and garnish with sliced hard boiled eggs.
