We all know that takeaway food isn’t particularly nutritious. That’s because it often contains high levels of salt, sugar, and fat. What’s more, your beloved egg fried rice usually contains monosodium glutamate (or MSG), a flavour enhancing additive that has addictive effects. This is what’s to blame when you find it hard to put down your chopsticks.

  3. Crack 2 eggs in a bowl and give ‘em a whisk! Then add them to the wok and mix until they’re light and fluffy.

  4. Stir in the prawns (200g) – we use cooked prawns to save time!
