Bring the rice to the boil and once it’s at boiling point turn the heat right down and then pop a lid on, cook until the rice absorbs all the water.
Leave the rice to rest for 5 minutes and then fluff up with a fork and then allow to cool.
Tip: if you leave the rice for an hour before cooking in the chicken stock you will get a bigger and nicer rice.

Next, add 2 tbsp sesame oil to the wok on a high heat, add your shallots and cook until soft and then ad the garlic and ginger and cook for another minute.
