  1. Cook the rice following pack instructions. Boil a separate pan of water and blanch peas for 1 minute, then drain and set aside with the rice.
  2. Meanwhile, heat oil in a large non-stick frying pan or wok over a medium heat and fry onion for 10 minutes or until golden brown. Add garlic and ginger and fry for a further minute. Tip in blanched peas and fry for 5 minutes, then the prawns and fry for a further 2 minutes.
