Step 1

Add a splash of olive oil and a pinch of salt to half a pot of water and bring to the boil. Add the rice pasta. Tip: This gives the rice pasta a bit of a shine and makes it less sticky.

While that cooks, defrost the prawns in water (prawns must be peeled and cleaned). Chop the spring onions, carrots and green pepper. Keep stirring the rice pasta while it cooks for 8-10mins. Drain rice. Place in a bowl.

Spaghetti surprise:

Add a splash of olive oil and a pinch of salt to half a pot of water and bring to the boil. Cook the 6 pieces of spaghetti (don’t break spaghetti in half) for 8-10 mins.

Once cool, take the 4/6 strings of spaghetti and twist into a knot.

Heat oil in a small pot. Place the spaghetti knot in the oil and deep fry until golden brown.
