What’s better than a meal that takes less than 30 minutes to prepare, has almost less than five ingredients and is the laziest dish to enjoyment ratio you can enjoy?


Sometimes you want to cook a lobster broth that takes six hours to simmer and hundredandtwo spices and the hard work of your first born.

And sometimes you just want something that’s thrown together but feels like it took you way more effort than it really did.

Here’s where Crunchy Coconut Rice Bowl comes in.

Or as I like to call it, The Comfort Bowl.


It’s my version of asian kid white rice with an egg and ketchup in a bowl

(But we’re adults now so c’mon I’m not putting ketchup on my rice anymore.. at least for this dish)

Ok, I admit it, I’m a little proud of this lazy-ass dish. Why? It gets the textural components right.

Nutty coconut rice – check

Gooey egg yolk – check

Crunchy shallots – check

… spicy Sriracha sauce, check!

It’s the best version of egg and rice in a bowl you can get.

Expect many more rice bowl adventures to come, I forgot just how good flavoured rice can be. Onwards with the recipe.

Make this for lunch, dinner, breakfast (I won’t judge).

Prep Time 25 minutes


Prep Time 25 minutes




  1. Add your rice, pinch of sugar and salt and enough coconut milk to cover your rice. If using a rice cooker, add to the line in your rice cooker. Put on to cook.
  2. Once your rice is cooked, heat a pan with vegetable oil. Wait until your pan is sizzling (you want your egg to crisp and bubble as soon as it hits the pan).
  3. When hot, crack your egg in and push the eggs white in on the edges as it cooks. Cook until yolk is still runny.
  4. Fill a bowl with that nutty coconut rice, top with the crispy fried egg, chopped spring onion, crispy shallots and a good squirt of sriracha.
  5. (Try not to go back for seconds)
