Quick Prawn Stir Fried Rice

Having spent a fabulously fun day out and about I didn’t give cooking much of a thought (very naughty I know!) and once I finally popped the fridge door open to my horror I didn’t have much in there – so it was time to improvise and get creative. So here’s what I did with half a packet of frozen prawns and some Basmati rice

Ingredients

200g Frozen prawns
4 spring onions (chopped)
2 garlic cloves (crushed)
1 carrot (halved in length and then very thinly sliced)
1 courgette (chopped)
1/2 tsp cumin seeds
1.5 tbsp vegetable oil
1/2 Tsp paprika
1.5 tsp curry powder
3 tbsp lemon juice
4 tbsp cream
2 tbsp chopped coriander
2 cups basmati rice
60g froze peas

Method:

First cook the basmati rice as instructed on the packet, adding the peas to cook with the rice.
Once cooked drain and keep to one side.

In a large pan or wok heat the oil and add the spring onion, garlic and cumin seeds and cook for a minute.

Then add the courgette and carrot and cook for a further 5 minutes or until the carrots have softened slightly, add the prawns and cook for another 5 minutes before finally adding all the remaining ingredients.

Stir in the rice to the pan and fry on high heat for a couple of minutes,

Serve whilst hot.
I also added a pinch of chili flakes to the adult portions and seasoned with salt.
