Method

  1. Tip the rice into a pan of boiling, salted water and simmer for 10 minutes, adding the peas for the last 3 minutes. Drain well.

  2. While the rice is cooking, heat the 2 tablespoons of oil in a large frying pan or wok. Add the onion and bacon and stir fry for 3-4 minutes, until the onion starts to turn golden and the bacon begins to cook. Stir in the curry paste and cook for a few seconds, then tip in the prawns and heat them through for a minute or so.

  3. Push the prawn mixture to one side of the pan and add the drop of oil to the other side. Pour the egg into the oil, stir until cooked like scrambled eggs, then mix into the prawns. Add the rice and peas and mix well. Serve immediately, with soy sauce for sprinkling, if you like.

Very tasty, easy and quick. Next time I might add some mushrooms.

Works equally well with mushrooms instead of peas. Also I tend to miss out the bacon as it doesn't really add anything (except calories!)

Loved by the family, I made a little extra and it was all eaten! I added some spinach at the end.

delicious with chorizo instead of bacon. put it in with the onions first to make sure it is soft though...

Very tasty - quick to prepare and little washing up! A squeeze of lemon juice instead of the soy sauce also gives it a lift for a change.

Excellent midweek quick tasty meal. Will do this time and time again. Would be ideal to use up left over cooked meat from Sunday Lunch.

Really good quick "comfort" food - the bacon makes it!

Really quick, easy and nice and light to eat for lunches aswell as dinner. Made it without the bacon once, and another time with the bacon, either way - delicious!

This is such a lovely quick dinner recipe. I've subsituted the tiger prawns for baby shrimp as my hubby isn't a massive fan of prawns and it was still delicious!

absolutely lovely, will take the tip of adding sultanas to lift it next time. This is in our top 10 for a friday night.

This was a real change to lots of the "Rice and ...." recipes. I think the addition of the bacon is the thing that really changed the character of the dish. It was blimming gorgeous and will feature on our menu lists regularly!

Have not made this yet, but intend to. However, a recipe for home made tikka masala curry paste would be good. If it is freezable that would be even better!
