1. Rinse the rice in two to three changes of warm water to wash away some of the starch. Dram well.
2. Put the rice in a saucepan and add 15ml/1 tbsp of the oil and the water. Cover and bring to the boil, stir once, then cover and simmer for 12-15 minutes, until nearly all the water has been absorbed. Turn off the heat and leave, covered, to stand for 1.0 minutes. Fluff up with a fork and leave to cool.
3. Heat the remaining oil in a preheated wok or frying pan, add the garlic and spring onions and stir-fry for 30 seconds.
4. Add the chicken, prawns and peas and stir-fry for 1-2 minutes, then add the cooked rice and stir-fry for a further 2 minutes. Pour in the egg and stir-fry until just set. Stir in the lettuce, soy sauce, sugar and seasoning.
5. Transfer to a warmed serving bowl, sprinkle with the chopped cashew nuts and serve immediately.
