2 lb sweet rice
1 vial powdered yellow food colouring
2 chicken legs and 2 chicken thighs
1 lb chicken livers
1/4 lb pork pieces
3 small Chinese sausages (1 pkg)
1/4 cup vegetable oil
1 onion, sliced
2 cloves garlic, minced
Salt and pepper
2 cups green peas
1 cup raisins
6 hard-cooked eggs, sliced
Rinse rice in large bowl; drain and transfer to large saucepan. Add just enough water to cover. Add food colouring and mix well. Cover and bring to boil over high heat. Reduce heat to low and simmer, covered, for about 20 minutes or until tender. Fluff with wooden spoon.
Meanwhile, cut chicken into chunks, removing skin. Cut chicken liver and pork into chunks. Slice sausage thinly. In large saucepan, heat oil over medium-high heat; sauté onion and garlic until softened and starting to brown. Add chicken, chicken liver, pork and sausages; season with salt and pepper to taste. Cook, stirring often, until chicken is no longer pink inside and just a hint of pink remains in pork.
Stir chicken and pork mixture into rice; mix well to combine. Stir in peas and raisins; heat through. Serve on platter garnished with slices of hard-cooked egg.
