What do i need?

  • Pre-cooked day old cold rice is always best for any fried rice recipe. This is the key to getting separate fluffy grains of rice! You can use Jasmine or long grain rice.
  • For some healthy protein we are using some juicy king prawns.
  • 4 large eggs – we will cook these first and set aside!
  • For the vegetables peas, carrots, red pepper, spring onion, onion, garlic, pineapple chunks, Thai chillies and cashews.
Fried Rice Sauce –

To add authentic flavour to our rice you will need to make a simple fried rice sauce using a selection of Asian condiments. Simply grab a bowl and whisk together the below:

  • 1 tbsp soy sauce;
  • Sweet soy sauce 1 tsp;
  • 1 tbsp fish sauce;
  • ½ tsp white pepper;
  • 1 tbsp oyster sauce;
  • ½ tsp curry powder; and
  • 1 tbsp coconut sugar.
