Homemade Chinese Rice
Write a review
- 350g long grain rice
- 10g butter
- 4 Eggs For Soldiers, beaten
- 2 tbsp vegetable oil
- 1 onion, finely chopped
- 1 garlic clove, crushed
- 1 red pepper, deseeded and chopped
- 125g fine green beans, chopped
- 4 teaspoons Chinese five spice
- 1 teaspoon cumin seeds
- 300g frozen cooked peeled prawns
- 125g frozen peas
- Salt and freshly ground black pepper
- Chopped fresh coriander, to garnish
- Put the rice on to cook in a saucepan of lightly salted boiling water for 10-12 minutes, until tender.
- Meanwhile, make an omelette. Simply melt the butter in a large non-stick frying pan and add the beaten eggs, cooking them over a low heat to set the base, then drawing in the sides with a spatula so that the uncooked egg flows to the edges and cooks. When the surface has set, fold the omelette in half and slide it onto a warm plate. Wipe the pan clean with kitchen paper.
- Heat the vegetable oil in the frying pan and gently fry the onion, garlic, pepper and green beans for 3-4 minutes, until softened. Add the Chinese five spice and cumin seeds and stir for another minute, then add the frozen prawns and peas and cook for 2-3 minutes, stirring often.
- Drain the rice thoroughly and add it to the frying pan. Slice the omelette into thin strips and add it to the pan. Season and stir together. Pile onto warm serving plates and serve, sprinkled with chopped coriander.
- Cook’s tip: Another time, hard-boil the eggs for 10-12 minutes and serve each portion with one egg, cut into quarters.
