    You can cut your prep time simply by using the pre-cooked sachets of rice. Sainsburys does the Jasmine rice but you can use other varietys if you wish.  -  19 Oct 2013  (Review from Allrecipes UK & Ireland)


    Nice recipe. I don't eat ham and can't do peanuts (the ground nut oil), so I used Canola and chicken only. I used peas and carrots (just my fav). Solid recipe - I also just fried up in a large frying pan as my wok broke last week!  -  31 Oct 2017  (Review from Allrecipes UK & Ireland)
