Eaten by millions every day, it has to be good. I have had this served all over Eastern Asia, each region has it's own version. Cook the plain rice the day before and allow to get cold. This then saves time. 15 mins to finish the dish.

- 1 medium red onion, sliced
- 2 fresh red chilies, ground to a pulp
- 2 ounces fresh prawns, shelled
- 2 ounces chicken, sliced

- 1 red chile, chopped

Another winner, Brian! With cooked rice in the freezer, it was a doddle to put the rest of this together. I did omit the chicken, but other than that, as recipe. As always, the secret to this kind of dish is to assemble the ingredients beforehand, and then, cook! I made the omelet with one egg, cooked in a little sesame oil, and used sesame oil for all the frying. A simple dish with a dash of heat, this made a lovely supper, thanks Brian!
