Tom Yam And Prawn Fried Rice

Nasi Goreng or Fried Rice again? Yes please and non other than the ever loved tom yam fried rice. Absolutely for the Thai flavours which I'm sure is a favourite. Such a similar fried rice you can also savour at hawker stalls and the most delicious ones, definitely from Thai stalls. Also, its a quick fix meal you can make at home - leftover cooked rice, ready made tom yam paste, onion and chillies pretty much the essentials and for veggies, well,suppose what's available at home. For this version, I added french beans/kacang buncis, fresh prawns and not to be missed is the aroma from kaffir lime leaves/limau purut.

3 cups cooked white rice
10 medium size prawns - de-vein and leave the tail part on
15 french beans/kacang buncis - remove strings and sliced thinly
5 shallots - sliced thinly (kept aside 1/4 amount for finale) 
5 garlic - chopped
1 tbsp (more or less) of ready-made tom yam paste
4-5 birds eye chillies/chilli padi - sliced (alternatively red chillies)
3 kaffir lime leaves/limau purut - shredded
4 tbsp oil
Salt for taste

Heat oil. Add prawns, garlic and 3/4 amount of the sliced shallots.  
Stir and fry until prawns are cooked.
Put in rice, tom yam paste and season with salt. 
Stir to combine all the ingredients. 
Add beans, 1/4 amount of the kept aside shallots, chillies and lime leaves.
Give a couple of stirs and dish out.
