  1. In a saucepan bring water to the boil. Add rice and stir. Reduce heat, cover and simmer for 20 minutes. Meanwhile, season eggs with salt and pepper.
  2. Heat 1 teaspoon oil in small frying pan, pour in eggs. Coat the bottom of the pan with the eggs, in order to cook them evenly; cook for about 3 minutes. Flip the eggs, cook one minute more and remove them to a cool surface. Let them cool, then cut them into thin slices. Set aside.
  3. Place bacon in a large, deep pan. Cook over medium high heat until evenly cooked. Drain on kitchen paper, chop into pieces and set aside.
  4. Spoon remaining 2 teaspoons oil into the pan with the bacon fat. Stir in rice; break up any clumps and toss to coat with oil. Stir in bacon, soy sauce, peas, eggs and spring onions. Stir and cook until heated through, approximately 3 minutes.
