Chilli Egg Fried Rice (serves 2)
2 tbsp rapeseed or vegetable oil
120g white basmati rice, or 300g cooked rice
2 eggs, beaten
60g diced thick ham/ leftover gammon
80g frozen peas
1 red chilli, seeded and diced very finely
Handful coriander, finely chopped (plus extra for garnish)
2 tbsp dark soy sauce
1 tbsp mirin
1 tsp rice vinegar
1 tsp toasted sesame oil
1. If not using leftover rice, first of all cook the rice according to packet instructions and set aside. Mix the soy sauce, mirin, rice vinegar and sesame oil, and set aside.
2. Put the oil in a wok and bring to a high heat. Pour in the beaten egg and stir frequently, breaking it up as the egg cooks. Cook for about 2 minutes or until the pieces of egg are beginning to go golden.
3. Add the cooked rice, ham, frozen peas, chilli and coriander and stir fry for 2 more minutes. Add the soy sauce mixture, and stir fry for 1 more minute. Serve with some extra chopped coriander.
