Method

  1. Heat the oil in a large wok or frying pan on a medium heat. Pour in the egg, tilt the pan so it forms a thin omelette and cook for about 1 min until set. Tip out onto a chopping board, roll up, then slice into ribbons. Set aside.

  2. Heat the curry paste with 1 tbsp water until hot, then tip in the rice, stir to break up and toss to coat.

  3. Add the prawns and beans, and heat through. Add the lime juice and fish sauce, then stir though the egg strips. Serve the fried rice in bowls with extra lime wedges and fish sauce. Scatter with some sliced cucumber, chilli and coriander leaves, if you like.

This was an easy and very tasty dinner, a real hit in our family! Theres a good chilli heat without it being too hot (mainly provided by the sliced chili garnish so it's easy to adjust to taste) and the lime provides a nice cooling effect without being overwhelming. Will be having this again. Very much recommended.

Simple, straightforward, tasty and filling. Its not big or clever & not gonna knock anyones socks off, but its a great go-to dish to have in your repertoire. I used brown rice and seasoned with dark soy at the table.

Really quick meal the whole family can enjoy. I changed the prawns for chicken and did not add the chilli as my little boy would not have liked it. I try to prep all the ingredients the night before then it's a quick flash in the pan after work the next night. Great mid week meal.

Very quick, very easy and very tasty! I used frozen peas rather than beans.

Really nice meal. First attempt at cooking by a novice and was easy as pie (never made pie). Added a bit more chilli which gave it a nice kick! Recommend!

Can I freeze this after cooking?
