  5. Heat and swirl 3 Tbsp oil around a wok  over medium-high heat.

  9. Add the nuts and stir-fry for ½ a minute.
  10. Now add the prepared rice. Stir-fry well till thoroughly mixed, breaking up any lumps, scooping up from bottom and tossing to fry rather than stirring around. Push rice to  the sides to add a little oil to centre of the wok if you feel its getting sticky.
  11. Add the bowl of whisked stock/sauce mixture.You may not require all the sauce. Add a little at a time to suit taste.
  12. Mix in the steamed carrots/strained peas, pineapple and raisins. Should not be wet! Stir fry till well combined.

Notes:

  • To cook Jasmine Rice: Using a rice cooker is recommended. Bring just a dash less than 2 cups water to boil, add the washed and drained rice and close.  Cook till done. Allow to sit for a while then cool in the fridge. Day old rice is best.
  • While stir frying, maintain a medium high heat and do not allow the rice to obtain even the slightest burnt smell. It will ruin the dish.
  • Stir fry the shrimp  just till they turn whitish opaque.
  • For vegetarian version,omit shrimp
