Ingredients :

2 eggs

salt and pepper

3 tbsp vegetable oil

4 shallots or 1 medium onion, finely chopped

1 tsp finely chopped fresh ginger

1 clove garlic, crushed

225g prawn (shrimp) tails, fresh or cooked

In a bowl, beat the eggs well, and season. Heat 1 tbsp of the oil in a large non-stick frying pan, pour in the eggs and allow to set without stirring for less than a minute. Roll up the pancake, cut into thin strips and set aside. Heat the remaining vegetable oil in a large wok, add the shallots, ginger, garlic and prawn (shrimp) tails and cook for 1-2 minutes, ensuring that the garlic doesn't burn. Add the chili sauce, spring onions (scallions), peas, pork and soy sauce. Stir to heat through, then add the rice. Fry the rice over a moderate heat for 6-8 minutes. Turn into a dish and decorate with the pancake.

There are many versions of this dish throughout the East, all of which make use of left over rice. Ingredients vary according to what is available, but prawns (shrimp) are a popular addition.
