Ingredients

  • 1 bunch of spring onions
  • 1 pepper (any colour)
  • 80g sweetcorn (frozen or canned)
  • 2 garlic cloves
  • 3 tbsp vegetable oil
  • 4 eggs
  • 1 tbsp ginger purée
  • 300g raw king prawns
  • 2 x 250g pouch microwave rice
  • 3 tbsp low-salt soy sauce
  • 1 tbsp sesame seeds, toasted, to serve

Equipment

  • chopping board
  • sharp knife
  • garlic crusher
  • wok
  • measuring spoons
  • small bowl
  • fish slice
  • kitchen paper
  • foil
  • wooden spoon

Method

  • STEP 1

    Before cooking a stir-fry, prepare all the ingredients. Peel the papery skins off the spring onions, then trim the root ends and cut the onions into 3cm pieces along their length. Chop the pepper into small chunks, about the size of a 50p piece. Drain the sweetcorn, if using canned. Peel the garlic cloves and use a garlic crusher to crush the cloves into a paste.

  • STEP 2

    Set a wok on the hob and turn the heat to high. Measure 1 tbsp vegetable oil into the wok. Crack one of the eggs into a bowl and carefully tip it into the wok, then repeat with a second egg. Fry two eggs at a time until crisp at the edges with a runny yolk, about 3 mins. Use a fish slice to remove the eggs to a sheet of kitchen paper and cover with foil to keep warm. Heat another 1 tbsp vegetable oil in the wok and fry the remaining two eggs in the same way.

  • STEP 3

    Add the remaining 1 tbsp vegetable oil to the wok and turn the heat down to medium-high. Scatter in the chopped spring onions, pepper, sweetcorn, garlic paste, ginger paste and prawns, and fry until the vegetables have softened and the prawns are starting to turn pink, about 2-3 mins. Keep stirring with a wooden spoon to make sure everything cooks evenly.

  • STEP 4

    Tip in the pouches of rice and the soy sauce, then season with a little salt and pepper. Continue stir-frying for another 2 mins until the rice is piping hot. Divide the fried rice between four bowls, then top with the fried eggs and sesame seeds before serving.
