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 dish tasted great, and the fact it was healthy was a bonus. I cooked the chilli with it rather than adding it after and this gave it a nice kick, but it wasn't too spicy.

This was really quick to make and tasted lovely. I used peas instead of green beans. Tasted great with some chilli sauce.
Very generous portions too.

Spot on recipe of the day as I had cooked too much rice the day before, and for some reason took prawns out of freezer previous night.
It tasted surprisingly well with the cucumber and I did not have any green beans, but added sliced spring onions which added some flavours. I cooked the prawns little bit with garlic too.
Will do again.
