Cold cooked rice makes a great standby ingredient and gives the best results for fried rice. To ensure that cooked rice is safe to eat, always chill it as soon as it is cool, reheat thoroughly from cold until piping hot and never leave it in the fridge for longer than 2 days. Great on the BBQ.


  1. Heat the oil in a large wok. Add the red onion and vegetables, then stir-fry for 2 mins until starting to wilt. Throw in the prawns, garlic and fish sauce and cook everything together for 3-4 mins until the prawns change colour and cook through. (If using cooked prawns, you just need to stir them into the rice to warm through before serving.)

  2. Scatter in the rice, then carry on cooking for 3-4 mins until the rice is piping hot. Serve scattered with coriander and pass round the soy sauce bottle for those who want it.
