Lock Down Lunches - Spicy Fried Rice With Eggs

A slight deviation to the normal blog fayre. With all this time on my hands due to the current lock down situation I've been doing quite a lot of cooking, so here is the first easy recipe - "spicy fried rice with eggs". Serves a hearty meal for one person or a light snack for two.


1 packet of uncle bens egg fried rice

1 red chilli, sliced

2 cloves of garlic sliced

2 teaspoons chinese five spice powder

1 small onion or shallot, finely sliced

1 carrot, finely sliced at an angle

3 slices of cooked ham, sliced (use tofu for a veggie option)

2 tablespoons of oil

2 tablespoons of water

Freshly ground salt and black pepper to taste

2 eggs


1 teaspoon chilli flakes

Light soy sauce


Heat a wok or large frying pan on a high heat until it starts to smoke slightly, add the oil allow to heat through for a minute or so. Add the carrots and onion or shallots and stir fry for 3 or 4 minutes until they start to take a bit of colour. Add the fresh chilli and garlic and continue to cook for a couple of minutes. Next add in the rice make sure you give the bag a good squeeze before opening to seperate it. Stir fry the rice for 4 mins then add the ham, add the water to stop the pan from drying out stir for a minute. Turn out on to a warm plate. Turn the heat down and add oil to the pan and fry the eggs, place the eggs on the rice and garnish with the chilli flakes and a little soy sauce. Enjoy....
