  3. 1 tea spoon of chicken concentrate (kana fondi)
Eggs
  1. 4 eggs (kananmuna)

  5. 1 thin leek sliced (purjosipuli)
  6. 2 tea spoons of salty soy sauce (soijakastike)
  7. 1 tea spoon of salt if needed to taste (suolaa)
Rice
  1. Prepare the rice for 4 portions as instructed in the package and put it aside. You can add 1 tea spoon of chicken concentrate but remember to reduce any salt accordingly. Usually rice to water ratio is 1:2.
Chicken
  1. Put the chicken in a bowl and add 1 tea spoon of salt, 1 tea spoon of corn flour, 1 tea spoon of sweet soy sauce, 1/2 tea spoon of banking soda and the thinly sliced chilli.
  2. Mix thoroughly.
  3. Put it in the fridge for around 20 minutes.
  4. Once the chicken is ready. Put 1 table spoon of oil into a hot wok.
  5. Then add half the garlic and ginger to that wok and let it fry for few seconds.
  6. Then add the chicken. Leave the chicken flat on the wok for 2 minutes.
  7. Then turn the chicken other way around. We want to make the chicken little brown but not burn it.
  8. Put the cooked chicken into a clean bowl.
Eggs
  1. Beat the 4 eggs lightly with 1 tea spoon of salt and 2 tea spoons of pepper.
  2. Add 1 table spoon of oil to the hot wok and then add the eggs and scramble them until the eggs are little brown outside.
  3. Put the cooked eggs into a clean bowl.
Stir fry
  1. Add 2 table spoons of oil to the hot wok.
  2. Add the garlic and ginger. Let it fry for few seconds.
  3. Then add carrots and salty soy sauce and mix well.
  4. Cover and let it cook for a minute.
  5. Then add the leeks and cover mix well.
  6. Cover and cook for 30s.
  7. Then add the rice and mix well with the vegetables.
  8. Then add chicken and scrambled eggs and mix well.
  9. Let it sit on the stove for 30s but make sure nothing burns.
  10. Enjoy!
Notes
  1. I like food with less salt. You can add salt wherever mentioned as you prefer.
  2. For the stir fry you can add bean sprouts, broccoli, bamboo shoots if you have them.
  3. Serve with sweet chilli sauce or hot chilli sauce if you can't find Chinese chilli paste.

Dialog GSM has been deceiving the public

Dialog GSM (biggest telecom provider in Sri Lanka) has been deceiving the public about their Family package tarrifs. Their marketing material, customer service representatives and the web site states there is a commitment of Rs. 250 (Local call charges) per supplementary connection and no commitment for the primary connection. Until February it was the case, but from March they started to have a commitment for the primary connection as well. I made a complaint to Dialog and initial response was prompt but there after one person from the billing department agreed that there was a mistake and 2 weeks later another person called up and said it was correct and the marketing material was wrong. Just to clarify I contacted the customer service department to clarify things viola, their intial response was that there is no commitment for the primary package but when I insisted that it may be wrong and many minutes of waiting they got back to me saying there is a group commitment of  Rs. 250.

If you have a Dialog Family package please go through your bills for February and March (April if you have already got it) 2009 and you will see the difference. Please post a comment if you are affected and even if you are not affected leave a comment then we might be able to find a pattern 🙂 . It might not affect you if your primary connection makes more than Rs. 250 worth of local calls, not the case with me.

If you want to see my bills please leave a comment, it’s 8 pages, little too much to post in a blog.

I believe this is clearly deceiving the public. Shame on you Dialog GSM.
