"Special Fried Rice"
Ingredients (serves 4):
4 tablespoons oil
125g boned, diced chicken
125g diced fish fillet
125g prawns, cut into pieces (optional)
2 large eggs (beaten & seasoned with salt & pepper)
1/2kg basmati rice (boiled in salted water and drained)
Heat oil in a large pan or wok and stir-fry chicken pieces seasoned with soy sauce and pepper for about 2 mins.
Add fish and prawns, season again with soy sauce and pepper and continue to stir-fry for 1 or 2 mins.
Keep the fried ingredients to one side of the pan. Put in 1 more tablespoon oil and pour in beaten eggs.
Stir so that the eggs set in threads. Mix with other fried ingredients.
When well mixed, add rice, sprinkle over soy sauce and pepper and stir-fry to heat through.
When rice is hot, sprinkle over chopped shallot, mix well and remove from heat.
Serve hot with tomato chutney.
Some finely shredded cabbage with grated carrots can be stir-fried and added to rice.
