- 31.1g (5.7g saturated)
- 57g (4.3g sugar)
- 2 medium eggs, beaten
- 1 red chilli, deseeded and chopped
- 2 tbsp vegetable oil
- 150g salted peanuts
- Bunch of spring onions, sliced
- 225g long-grain rice, cooked
- 100g frozen peas
- 2 tbsp light soy sauce, plus extra to serve
- Mix the eggs, chilli and seasoning. Heat half the oil in a wok or large frying pan over a medium heat. Add the egg and cook like a pancake, until set and pale golden. Slide out, roll up and finely shred. Set aside.
- Add the remaining oil and peanuts to the wok and stir-fry for 2 minutes. Add the spring onions, cook for 1 minute, then add the cooked rice, peas and soy sauce. Stir-fry until the rice is hot. Serve topped with the egg and extra soy sauce to drizzle over.
If you’re not vegetarian, add some finely diced pork or chicken to the wok along with the peanuts, if you like.
