1 Place rice into a deep saucepan with 3 cups cold water and place over a high heat. Bring to the boil, reduce heat to medium low and cook for 5 minutes or until craters form in rice. Reduce to low and cook, covered, for 5 minutes. Remove from heat and stand for 10 minutes. Line a large tray with baking paper. Spread rice over prepared tray and cool. When rice is cold, cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least 1½ hours, preferably overnight.
2 Heat a wok over a high heat. When hot, swirl around 1 tsp oil. Whisk eggs in a bowl. Pour half the egg mixture into hot wok and swirl egg, forming a thin omelette. Cook for 1-2 minutes. Turn omelette onto a flat surface and roll, forming a sausage shape. Reheat wok and cook remaining egg. Thinly slice, forming ribbons of egg.
3 Reheat wok and add 2 tsp oil. Add ¼ prawns and stir-fry for 1-2 minutes or until just cooked. Transfer to a bowl. Repeat with remaining portions of prawns. Add green onion, garlic and chilli to wok. Stir-fry for 1 minute. Add cold rice. Stir-fry for 2 minutes or until rice is heated through and ingredients are well combined. Return prawns to wok and toss until well combined.
