Prawn Fried Rice {Non-Veg}

There are an infinite range of ingredients and flavours that can be combined to create new and interesting versions of Fried Rice. According to my Mom, fried rice is more of a formula than a single recipe. Shrimps......ahh....the very first member of fish family with which I started eating Non-Vegetarian dishes....I was a great lover of Fried Rice....and these days one of my favourite fried rice dish is the Shrimp Fried Rice. 

  • 2 cups cooked long grain rice ( The best rice to use is leftover rice that's been lying in the fridge for at least a day. This will turn the grains firm and get rid of the excess moisture. If you want to cook with freshly-made rice, transfer the cooked rice into a sieve and keep it under running cold water for 4-5 minutes stirring continously with your fingers and then spread them on wide tray.)
  • 15-20 nos Shrimp{ Prawns} ( I prefer to keep them whole, they can be cut into smaller pieces)
  • 1 Onion (chopped finely)
  • ½ rice bowl measure of Carrots & French beans (diced small)
  • 3 cloves garlic (chopped finely)
  • 3-4 Green Chilis (chopped finely)
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 teaspoons dark soya sauce
  • Salt and white pepper powder to taste
  • 4 tablespoons cooking oil

  1. Heat a wok (you need a large wok or pan for this) till the surface is almost smoking. Then add the oil and spread it around till it coats the surface evenly.
  2. Add the shrimps and fry till they turn red. Remove and set aside.
  3. In the same oil, add garlic, onions, green chilis, carrots and beans and stir well for 5-7 minutes and then add soya sauce and toss around for another 1 minute.
  4. Push ingredients aside by making a well. Add a tablespoon of oil in the center and break eggs into the oil. Once eggs are semi-cooked, add rice and fried prawns and push ingredients into it. Stir evenly and press rice to separate grains from one another.
  5. Add the seasoning of salt, pepper and sugar.
  6. Fry the rice for another 4-5 minutes stirring continously until the seasoning is evenly distributed.
  7. Thats all.....Prawn Fried Rice is ready...

Good chefs always taste their Recipe.....Go Ahead....And say Wow.
