  1. Cook the rice according to the package directions and keep warm.
  2. Heat the vegetable oil over high heat in a wok or large, deep sided skillet. Add the prawns, garlic, and chiles; stir fry for 2 minutes. Stir in the chili oil, soy sauce, sugar, and vinegar. Add the peanuts, carrot, and celery. Stir to combine and reduce the heat to low. Cover and cook for 3 minutes.
  3. Meanwhile, whisk together the broth and cornstarch in a small bowl. Add the cornstarch mixture to the wok, stir to combine, and bring to a boil. Cook until the sauce thickens, 2 to 3 minutes. Stir in the sesame oil and season to taste with salt.
  4. Garnish with the green onions and serve with rice.
