Method

  1. Put the rice in a saucepan with 600ml water. Bring to boil, cover, then simmer for 10 mins or until almost all the water has gone. Leave off the heat, covered, for 5 mins more.
  2. Heat the oil in wok or large frying pan. Add the garlic and chilli, then cook for 10 secs – making sure not to let it burn. Throw in the cooked rice, stir fry for 1 min, then push to the side of the pan. Pour the eggs into the empty side of the pan, then scramble them, stirring. Once just set, stir the peas and spring onions into the rice and egg, then cook for 2 mins until the peas are tender. Add the prawns and soy sauce, heat through, then serve with extra soy sauce on the side, if you like.

Delicious side dish to accompany the crispy chilli ceef recipe from Good Food. I cooled the rice down before frying as I found the rice went a bit mushy when I made it before.

Very nice low fat recipe will try next time without the prawns and use as a side portion to a main meal

The easiest and best tasting fried rice i've ever made, loads better than take away. Used garlic and ginger paste and fried that with the chilli, added sweetcorn with the peas and a chopped yellow pepper. Definitely be making again :)

Disappointed with this recipie. Being a fan of fried rice, I thought that I would try out this recipie but it's really not very nice and I wouldn't advise wasting your time and effort on it.. :(

A good quick supper, I added some ginger and broccoli. I also cooked my rice off first and refreshed it after reading the other comments and added the peas and broc before cooking the eggs. Would do again if stuck.

My hubby and I love this dish, quick, cheap, nutritious and very tasty. This time around we had no peas so added chopped up red pepper instead. Mmmmmmmmmmm, leaves you feeling full if you are watching your weight.

I thought this was lovely as a basic rice dish and considering I had little time and ingredients to cobble together a quick meal. Next time will make it along with some other dishes as suggested by others. Will definitely make again!

Had this as a quick mid week tea, although a little bland, I will make again and add ginger, extra garlic and extra chillies, maybe red peppers. Very easy, just needs spicing up a little

Great recipe, very popular with the family. I added some cooked pork I had in the fridge and a splash of sherry, came out brilliantly.

I made this last night, substituting red onion for the spring onion (cooked along with the garlic & chilli at the start) and used frozen broad beans instead of peas. Delicious... and I'll definitely be making it again. Soon.

Did this a couple of weeks ago with beef in oyster sauce and Thai chicken curry, very good indeed and will be doing again.
