Method


  1. Place the rice and 1½ cups (375ml) cold tap water in a medium (15-17cm base) saucepan. Bring to the boil, uncovered over high heat. Reduce heat to low, stir, cover and simmer on low heat for 12 minutes. Remove from the heat. Spoon the rice into a sieve and rinse until the rice feels cool. Drain well. Spread onto a baking tray. Refrigerate, uncovered for 2 hours or until cold.

  2. Place the oil, shallots, garlic and Lap Cheong in a cold wok (see tip). Place over medium heat and cook, stir frying for 5 minutes until shallots are light golden. Add the tomato sauce, soy and chilli oil. Stir to combine. Increase the heat to high and add the chicken. Stir-fry 3-5 minutes until chicken is hot and starts to become crispy on the edges. Add the capsicum and sprouts, stir fry for 1 minute.

  3. With your hands, scatter over the rice, breaking up any clumps. Stir-fry until hot. Remove from the heat and stir through the green onions.

  4. Spoon the fried rice into bowls. Top each with a fried egg, sprinkle with fried shallots and coriander and a drizzle of chilli oil.

  5. Tip Lap Cheong sausage and chilli oil are available in the Asian section of the supermarket. You can replace the sausage with bacon and chilli oil with chilli sauce or just leave them out of the recipe.

    Tip: Spreading the rice onto a tray and refrigerating uncovered allows it to dry on the surface, this prevents it going ‘gluggy’ when stir-frying. If you're short on time, freeze the rice for 1 hour

    Tip By starting with a cold wok the shallots and garlic will cook slowly, which allows them to soften and become sweet before golden.
