This is a super simple, super tasty dinner that's all the better for the fried egg on top!
Heat 1 tablespoon of groundnut oil in a wok, add the shallot, garlic and red chilli and stir-fry for 2 minutes. Add the prawns, stir-fry for 1 minute, then add the cold rice and fry for a further minute.
Mix the soy sauce, lime juice, brown sugar and tomato purée together in a small bowl and add to the pan, along with the spring onions and carrot ribbons and mix well. Continue to cook over a medium heat for 5 minutes, stirring occasionally.
Heat 1 tablespoon of groundnut oil in a small frying pan, crack the egg in and place over a medium high heat. Fry the egg for a minute or so, using a spatula to baste the hot oil over the yolk to cook it to your liking.
Season the rice with salt and white pepper and serve in a shallow bowl. Top with the fried egg.
