  • Heat a large pan of cold water, season and when it comes to the boil, add the rice. Simmer for 8-10 minutes or until the rice is cooked without being mushy. Drain and keep warm.
  • Meanwhile, seed the chilies and cut them into very thin matchsticks.
  • Fry in a pan taking care not to stand right over them as the oil can choke you!

  • Add the lime juice and the prawns and continue to simmer for a further 2-3 minutes or until the prawns are cooked.
