Rinse prawns before cooking
Add cooking oil in a heated pan. Pan fry prawns over medium heat . Cook each side for about 1-2 minutes. Until about 80 percent done, remove from heat & set aside.
Cook the egg fried rice
Add more oil in the same pan if needed.
Pour 3 eggs in, break the yolk, swirl them around. Cook eggs until 80 percent done.
Put 2 cups of cooked rice and separate rice to prevent clumps. Mix well.
Once most of the rice is coated with eggs, add the chicken stock powder and salt. Mix well.
Add 1/2 tablespoon of light soya sauce to enhance the flavour. Once the rice starts jumping around, it’s done.
