  • Gently lift the sides of the egg with a spatula and tilt the pan until all of the runny egg is cooking.
  • Flip and cook until set then remove to a cutting board to chop.
  • Add another couple of drizzles of oil to the pan and add the cold rice, stirring until heated through.
  • In a small dish, stir together the Worcestershire, sugar and lime juice and add to the rice, stirring to coat evenly.
  • Add the peppers, onions and egg back in and toss to combine.
  • Serve immediately.
