Serves 4

1 1/2 cups long grain rice (Basmati)
2 eggs
4 tsp cold water
3 tbsp sunflower oil
4 scallions thinly sliced
1 garlic clove, crushed
Small tin button mushrooms, sliced
2 tbsp oyster or anchovy sauce
Tin of water chesnuts, drained and sliced
8 oz peeled prawns, defosted if frozen
Small bunch watercress, roughly chopped, keep a few sprigs as garnish
Salt & pepper

Boil the rice in normal way
(2 cups of salt water to 1 cup rice. Tip the rice into the boiling water, stir once, turn the heat right down and put the lid on the pan. Leave until all the water is gone, 10 to 15 minutes. You will have a pan of nice fluffy rice.)

Beat each egg separately with 2 tsp cold water and some salt & pepper.
Heat 2 tsp oil in a wok or large frying pan and make 2 thin omlettes with the egg mixtures.
Cut the omlettes into 1 inch squares.

Heat the remaining oil in the same wok or large frying pan.
When really hot add the scallions and garlic and stir-fry for 1 min.
Add the drained mushrooms and cook for a further 2 min.

Stir in the oyster or anchovy sauce and seasoning
Add the water chesnuts and shrimps and stir-fry for 2 min.

Stir in the cooked rice and stir-fry for 1 min.
Add the watercress and omlette squares and stir-fry until everything is piping hot.

Serve at once garnished with the watercress.

Enjoy :D

There is too much talk of cooking being an art or science -
we are only making ourselves something to eat.

If you go to the bbc food website you can search for recipes using ingredients that you specify. So if you put in rice it will bring up all the recipes on the site containing it.
