In a medium saucepan, bring the water and basmati rice to the boil over a high heat. Add the vegetable stock, reduce the heat to medium and simmer, uncovered and stirring occasionally, until the rice is almost tender, 10 minutes. Drain any excess water and set aside.
TIP: The rice will continue cooking in step 4!
While the rice is cooking, finely chop the carrot (unpeeled). Finely chop the capsicum. Roughly chop the Asian greens. Finely chop the garlic (or use a garlic press). Finely grate the ginger. Remove the centre veins from the makrut lime leaves and very finely chop. Roughly chop the coriander. Thinly slice the spring onion. Slice the lime (see ingredients list) into wedges.
TIP: The makrut lime leaves are fibrous so you want to cut them finely.
Heat a large frying pan over a medium-high heat. Add the shredded coconut (see ingredients list) and toast, tossing, until golden, 2-3 minutes. Transfer to a bowl. Return the frying pan to a high heat with a drizzle of olive oil. Add the carrot and capsicum and stir-fry until tender, 5-6 minutes. Add the Asian greens, garlic, ginger and makrut lime and stir-fry until fragrant, 1-2 minutes.
Add the sweet chilli sauce and soy sauce to the pan with the veggies and stir to coat. Add the parcooked rice and cook, stirring, until tender, 2 minutes. Remove the pan from the heat and stir through the toasted coconut, spring onion, 1/2 the coriander and a generous squeeze of lime juice.
In a medium frying pan, heat a drizzle of olive oil over a medium-high heat. When the oil is hot, gently crack the eggs into the pan and sprinkle a pinch of chilli flakes (if using) over the top. Cook until the yolks are cooked to your liking, 4-5 minutes.
TIP: This will give a soft yolk, fry for 6-7 minutes to get a hard yolk.
Divide the Thai-style fried rice between bowls and top each with a chilli fried egg. Garnish with the crispy shallots, roasted peanuts and remaining coriander. Serve with the remaining lime wedges.
