Cooking Instructions
Instructions for 2 people (double for 4)
1 Indonesian Prawn Fried Rice & Smashed Cucumber

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

2 Indonesian Prawn Fried Rice & Smashed Cucumber

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

3 Indonesian Prawn Fried Rice & Smashed Cucumber

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

4 Indonesian Prawn Fried Rice & Smashed Cucumber

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!

5 Indonesian Prawn Fried Rice & Smashed Cucumber

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

6 Indonesian Prawn Fried Rice & Smashed Cucumber

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

7 Indonesian Prawn Fried Rice & Smashed Cucumber

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
