  1. Put the rice in a medium saucepan and cover with 150ml water. Bring to the boil, cover and simmer for 8 mins. Remove from the heat, stir in 1 tsp sesame oil; set aside, covered.
  2. Heat 1 tsp of the olive oil in a large frying pan on a high heat and fry the mince for 3-4 mins until browned all over, stirring occasionally. Add the onions and 2 tsp of the chipotle chilli and smoked paprika paste and cook for 1 min more or until the mince is cooked through. Stir in the soy sauce and half the lime juice, then tip into a bowl; cover with foil.
  3. Steam the pak choi for 4-5 mins.
  4. Wipe out the frying pan and heat the remaining olive oil. Break the eggs and cook over a medium-high heat for 3 mins until the whites have formed crispy edges and are set but the yolks are still runny.
  5. Divide the rice between 2 bowls, pile on the carrot, pak choi and mince, then top with the eggs. Mix the remaining lime juice, sesame oil and chipotle paste and drizzle over the top to serve.
