  1. Heat most of the oil in a large wok and fry the shallots until crispy and golden. Remove with a slotted spoon, season with salt and leave to drain on kitchen paper. Season the eggs with 1 tsp of the soy sauce and some black pepper.

  2. Pour out most of the oil from the wok and wipe with kitchen paper. Add the eggs, swirl to coat the pan in a thin omelette layer, cook until set, then remove. Roll up, slice and set aside.

  3. Add the paste to the wok with the chicken and cook through, adding a splash of water if it starts to stick. Tip in the rice and remaining soy sauce, then mix well to coat all the grains. Heat through until piping hot. Add the omelette and the peas, warm through, then divide into 2 bowls and top with the shallots and coriander.

Lovely and tasty but a little dry. I'm going to look for a recipe for a malaysian curry sauce.

Really tasty but a little in the dry side. I’m gonna make this again but with a little more paste and maybe a couple of tomatoes to make a little more saucy.

Excellent! However I did use a stir through sauce bcause I couldn't find any paste. I also added some veg.
