Quick and Easy Prawn and Egg Fried Rice

This is something I make when I am short on time , this is very quick to put together and tastes really fantastic . It only has quite a few ingredients , you can make it with leftover plain rice so here goes................


2 cups of cooked Basmati rice
2-3 spring onions chopped
3-4 garlic finely chopped
1 inch pc of ginger finely chopped
1 cup of chopped french beans
1 carrot chopped
10 prawns washed and deveined
2 eggs beaten
2 tbsp soy sauce
salt and pepper to taste
1 cube chicken stock
2 tbsp of oil


In a saucepan or wok , heat a tbsp of oil and add the white part of the spring onions , garlic and ginger .
Add the prawns and cook it till done stirring it frequently .
Now add in the remaining vegetables and the chicken stock cube and stir fry it for about 5 min .
Add the cooked rice in batches along with the soy sauce , salt and pepper .
Toss everything together till it is all mixed well .
Now add in the beaten egg and the remaining 1 tbsp of oil and mix it all well .
By doing this the rice will be coated with egg .
Garnish with spring onion and serve hot .


You can use frozen mixed vegetables . Also for more flavour cook the rice in chicken stock if you wish .
