2 cups long-grain rice, rinsed

2 tbsp kecap manis

1 tbsp soy sauce

1 tbsp sweet chilli sauce

1 1/2 tbsp peanut oil

2 eggs, lightly beaten

1 brown onion, thinly sliced

3 garlic cloves, finely chopped

400 g mixed mushrooms (we used button and Swiss brown), thinly sliced

1 small chicken breast fillet, chopped

250 g green prawns, peeled, deveined, roughly chopped 4 green onions, thinly sliced

1/4 small Chinese cabbage, finely shredded

1/4 cup fried shallots (see tip)

1 red chilli, thinly sliced, to serve


1Cook rice following the absorption method on the packet. Drain. Spread over a baking tray, separating the rice garins with a fork. Cool to room temperature. Cover and refrigerate for 2 hours or until cold (see note).

2Combine the kecap manis, soy sauce and sweet chilli sauce in a jug. Heat a wok over high heat until hot. Add 2 teaspoons of the oil and swirl to coat the wok surface. Add the egg and swirl to form a thin omelette. Cook for 30 seconds or until egg sets. Slide omelette onto a board. Roll up and thinly slice crossways.

3Heat the remaining oil in wok over high heat. Add the onion, garlic and mushrooms. Stir-fry for 2 minutes or until mushrooms are tender. Add the chicken. Stir-fry for 1–2 minutes or until sealed. Add the prawns. Stir-fry for 2 minutes or until prawns turn pink.

4Add the rice, green onions, cabbage and soy mixture to the wok. Stir-fry for 4-5 minutes or until rice is heated through. Stir in the sliced omelette. Sprinkle with shallots and chopped chilli, if desired. Serve.

Note: Long-grain rice is best cooked and chilled 1 day before making the fried rice.

Tip: Fried shallots add a lovely crunch to the finished dish. They are available from Asian grocery stores. Once the packet is opened, store shallots in the freezer.
