    by Chetna Makan

    • Preparation time: 10 minutes
    • Cooking time: 15 minutes
    • Total time: 25 minutes 25 minutes

    Serves: 2


    1 tbsp sunflower oil
    15g ginger, finely chopped
    2 cloves garlic, finely chopped
    ½ red chilli, finely chopped
    2 salad onions, finely sliced
    ½ Chinese leaf, core removed, leaves finely shredded
    250g pouch microwaveable basmati rice (or 250g leftover cooked rice)
    1 British Blacktail Free Range Large egg, lightly beaten
    1 tsp light soy sauce
    1-2 tsp Lee Kum Kee Chiu Chow Chilli Oil
    180g pack raw king prawns 


    1. Heat ½ tbsp sunflower oil in a large wok or frying pan, add the ginger, garlic, chilli and salad onions, then fry for 1 minute over a low heat. Turn up the heat, then tip in the Chinese leaf and stir fry for 3-4 minutes, until softened and slightly charred. Add the rice and heat until piping hot.

    2. Push the rice to one side of the pan and heat the remaining ½ tbsp oil in the space created. Add the egg and mix continuously until scrambled. Fold the egg through the rice with ½ tsp soy sauce. Season.

    3. Meanwhile, in a separate pan, heat the chilli oil and remaining ½ tsp soy sauce together. Add the prawns and cook for 3-4 minutes, or until cooked through, pink and opaque. Divide the rice between bowls and top with the prawns and cooking juices.

    Chetna’s tip Chiu Chow chilli oil is a great flavour-boosting pantry staple but if you’re sensitive to spice, avoid adding the chilli bits and use the oil part instead. It still packs a punch, but in a more subtle way that isn’t too spicy.
