Ingredients

  • 2 tbsp Essential Vegetable Oil
  • 1 shallot, finely chopped
  • 2 clove/s garlic
  • 1 red chilli, deseeded and finely chopped
  • 100g fine green beans, cut into 2-3cm pieces
  • 165g pack Essential Raw King Prawns
  • 250g pack microwaveable jasmine rice
  • 2 tbsp Cooks’ Ingredients Ketjap Manis
  • 2 tsp reduced-salt soy sauce
  • 2 No.1 Longstock Gold eggs
  • Thinly sliced salad onions and cucumber, and lime wedges, to serve (optional)

Method

  1. Heat 1 tbsp oil in a large frying pan or wok over a high heat. Add the shallot, garlic, chilli and beans, then fry for 1 minute. Add the prawns and fry for 1 minute more, then add the rice, ketjap manis and soy sauce

  2. Stir fry everything for 3-4 minutes until the rice starts to catch a little and caramelise in places and the prawns are pink and opaque throughout. Divide between 2 warm plates.

  3. Wipe out the pan and return to a high heat with the remaining 1 tbsp oil. Crack in the eggs and fry for 2-3 minutes, basting with the oil to help them cook. Top the rice with the eggs and serve with sliced salad onions and cucumber, plus lime wedges, if liked

Cook’s tip

Leftovers

Ketjap manis

This sweet and syrupy soy sauce is hugely popular in Indonesian cooking. It makes a good marinade for chicken or pork, and can be used as a dipping sauce too.
