600ml water
45g frozen peas
45g canned button mushrooms
90g palm olein

1. Mince garlic. Soak four black mushrooms in water and dice later. Dice button mushrooms. Mince the beef. Peel and slice prawns.

2. Bring water to boil. Blanch green peas and mushrooms for a few seconds. Take out and drain.

3. Heat wok, add 90g palm olein and fry minced beef for a few seconds.

4. Drain and put aside. Fry prawns.

5. Heat the second palm olein, add minced garlic and fry until golden brown. Add boiled rice and stir fry well. Add blanched mushrooms, green peas, sauteed beef and prawns.
