  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.

This is delicious and really easy to make. It does need the soy sauce though, I think.

A very nice dinner, easy and quick to do! I've cooked this recipe twice now, with the bacon and without and I found no real difference. I think I might add a few mushrooms next time or possibly some ham!

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!)
