Spicy Pattaya Fried Rice (Nasi Goreng Pattaya)

Pattaya fried rice is a Thai dish where the (fried) rice is encased within an omelette. Here’s how you can turn your leftover rice and sambal into an exciting dinner.

2 bowls of rice (serves two)
1-2 tablespoons sambal (as spicy as you like it)
1 carrot, diced
½ cup peas
½ sweetcorn
8 prawns, shelled and cleaned
Soy sauce
Salad on the side
2 eggs

Fry the carrots in a frying pan with some olive oil for two minutes. The prawns, sweetcorn and peas are added to the pan. When the prawns turn pink, stir in the sambal and rice (make sure the rice is not in lumps). Turn the heat to medium high, stir well and coat the rice evenly with the sambal. Season the rice with soy sauce (and salt if necessary) to taste. Heat through for five minutes and it’s done.

In a separate pan, fry up two beaten eggs into two thin omelettes. Dish up the rice and cover it with the omelette. Add salads to the side before serving.
