Add the basmati rice and 300ml [600ml] cold water to a pot with a lid and bring to the boil over a high heat
Once boiling, reduce the heat to very low and cook, covered, for 10-12 min or until all the water has been absorbed and the rice is cooked
Meanwhile, peel and finely chop (or grate) the garlic
Peel (scrape the skin off with a teaspoon) and finely chop (or grate) the ginger
Trim, then slice the spring onion[s] finely
Once the rice is cooked, fluff it with a fork and transfer it to a plate
Spread the cooked rice out evenly on the plate and set aside to cool
Add half the dried chilli flakes (can't handle the heat? Go easy!) and a generous pinch of salt to a pestle & mortar and grind together – this is your chilli salt
Tip: If you don't have a pestle and mortar, just mix the two together!
Trim the cucumber, then bash it several times with a rolling pin until broken
Tip: Cover it with a clean tea towel so you don't lose any, and to stop it from making any mess!
Chop the smashed cucumber into large, bite-sized pieces
Add the chopped cucumber to a bowl with the chilli salt, toasted sesame oil and rice vinegar
Give everything a good mix up and set aside
Heat a large, wide-based pan (preferably non-stick) with a generous drizzle of vegetable oil over a medium heat
Once hot, add the prawns with the chopped ginger, garlic, spring onion and remaining chilli flakes (not a fan of spice? Just add a little!)
Cook for 2-3 min, then add the cooled rice and soy sauce and cook for a further 2-3 min or until the prawns are cooked through
This is your prawn fried rice
Heat a separate, large, wide-based pan (preferably non-stick) with a drizzle of vegetable oil over a medium heat
Once hot, crack the eggs into the pan and cook, covered, for 3-4 min or until cooked to your liking
Serve the prawn fried rice with the smashed cucumber to the side
Top the rice with a fried egg and drizzle the cucumber with any remaining dressing
Garnish with the fried onions
