A simple Chinese dish best made with rice that has been cooked and chilled overnight.

Ingredients

Quantity Ingredient
300g jasmine rice
5 tablespoons sunflower oil
3 eggs, beaten and seasoned
100g shiitake mushrooms, finely sliced
150g cooked peeled prawns
75g frozen peas, defrosted
6 spring onions, finely sliced
1 tablespoon sesame oil
2 tablespoons shaoxing wine
4 tablespoons soy sauce
handful coriander leaves, to serve

Method

  1. Cook the rice according to the packet instructions. Drain, then spread it out on a tray and leave to cool. Chill in the fridge until ready to cook, preferably overnight.
  2. When ready to serve, heat 1 tbsp of the sunflower oil in a wok until very hot. Add the beaten eggs and scramble for 30 seconds, then tip onto a plate. Return the wok to the heat, add 3 tbsp sunflower oil and heat until nearly smoking. Tip in the mushrooms and cook for 2 minutes. Add the last 1 tbsp sunflower oil and the chilled rice. Cook, stirring for 4 – 5 minutes, until the rice is starting to crisp a little here and there. Add the prawns, peas, scrambled eggs and half the spring onions. Continue to stir for 2 minutes. Pour in the sesame oil, wine and soy, adding more soy or sesame oil to taste.
  3. Serve topped with the remaining spring onions and coriander.
