    Put all your ingredients in bowls next to the hob ready to use. Heat a wok over a high heat with 1 tbsp of the oil. Add the chilli, garlic, coriander stalks and ginger, and stir-fry for a couple of mins. Add the carrot, spring onions and shredded cabbage, and stir-fry for about 5 mins, then move all of it to one side of the wok. Add the remaining oil and fry the beaten egg, moving it around to incorporate into the veg. Add the prawns and stir for a few seconds until
