  1. Step 1

    Use a mortar and pestle to crush the garlic, shallot and chillies, if using, into a rough paste. (Alternatively, place the garlic, shallot and chillies, if using, in a food processor and process until coarsely chopped.)
  2. Step 2

    Heat the oil in a wok or large frying pan over high heat. Add the garlic mixture and cook for 1 min or until the garlic mixture begins to soften and is aromatic. Push the garlic mixture to one side of the wok or pan and add 1 egg. Cook, stirring to scramble the egg slightly, until the egg begins to set. Add the chicken and stir-fry for 2 mins. Add the cabbage, carrot and choy sum. Stir-fry for 4 mins or until the vegetables start to soften. Add the rice and stir-fry for 5 mins or until the rice is heated through and well combined.
  3. Step 3

    Meanwhile, heat a non-stick frying pan over medium heat. Cook the remaining eggs sunny-side up or to your liking. Transfer to a plate.
  4. Step 4

    Add the stock powder, pepper, salt and kecap manis to the rice mixture. Stir-fry until well combined. Add the spring onion and toss to combine.
  5. Step 5

    Divide the rice mixture among serving plates. Sprinkle with fried shallots. Top with fried egg and prawn crackers to serve.
