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.

I added some 5 spice powder with the peas & spring onions as I could see it being a bit bland. That certainly seemed to help as all the plates in our house were cleared :)

I didn't find this one bland at all. It's the garlic and chilli which really make it! Don't scrimp! I found this one preferable to a take-away version, less oily and with more prounounced flavours! A lovely quick weeknight supper.

Brilliant recipe. I added some ginger at the start (with garlic and chilli) and added a splash of chinese cooking wine and toasted sesame seed oil at the end as I had them in the cupboard.

Great mid week meal. Used Uncle Bens Express rice - 2 mins in microwave. Also added sweetcorn and replaced red chilli with a few peppadew peppers from a jar.

This recipe was really good, although I did overcook the rice so it ended up a bit sticky.

This recipe was quick and easy but, quite bland and a bit boring. Good if you need something quick but, otherwise not so great.
