Type of Dish Side Dish


  • 1 egg
  • 10 ml (2 tsp) sesame oil
  • 30 ml (2 Tbsp) vegetable oil
  • 400 g (14oz) long-grain rice (cooked weight)
  • 100 g (4oz) peas
  • 4 spring onions (finely chopped)
  • 100 g (4oz) beansprouts
  • 10 ml (2 tsp) soy sauce
  • To taste ground white pepper


  1. Beat egg and sesame oil together and put to one side. Heat vegetable oil in a wok, when it's almost smoking, add the rice and stir-fry for about 3-4 minutes until completely heated through.
  2. Add the peas, spring onions and beansprouts. Stir-fry, turning the rice constantly around the pan, for about 3 minutes. Season well with soy sauce and pepper, then push to one side of the pan.
  3. Add some oil and pour the beaten egg mixture into the other side and leave for about 10 seconds so it begins to set. Using a wok ladle swirl around the egg to break it up and then toss around with the rice. Stir-fry for a further minute and serve straight away.
