Top tips for making Singapore egg fried rice

  • Using microwaveable rice is a great cheat for when you don't have loads of time to cook but still want to make a nutritious meal for your family.

  • If the kids are going to be eating this dish, then you might want to leave out the red and green chillies as it's milder without them, but just as tasty.

  • If you're not a fan of prawns, you can easily make this recipe with shredded chicken, or you can go veggie with lots of colourful peppers.
