Prawn Fried Rice

The other day Baba bought some good tiger prawn (shrimp) from fish market. Those were so fresh that I thought of making some Prawn Fried Rice with these fresh shrimps. So at dinner I cooked some Indo-Chinese style fried rice with these tiger prawns . Both dishes turned out very good and tasty.

Since I have used freshly bought shrimps I marinated with some lemon juice and salt, later washed it completely before frying. If may use store bought frozen shrimps too. This rice recipe is very easy to cook and at the same time very tasty. It can be paired both with veg or non veg side dishes. Yesterday I made some Sesame Chicken with it. Will share the recipe soon!

Ingredients

500 gms Basmati or any long grain rice
½ cup Carrot – (Finely Chopped)
½ cup Beans – (Finely Chopped)
½ cup Green Bell Pepper – (Finely Chopped)
½ cup Onion Leaf – (Finely Chopped)
½ cup Garlic Leaf – (Finely Chopped)
½ cup Spring Onion – (Finely Chopped)
½ cup Shrimp – (Cleaned and deveined)
2 – 3 (Finely Chopped) Green Chillies
2 tsps Garlic – (Chopped)
1 tsp Black Pepper Powder
2 tsps Rice Vinegar
2 tsps Soya Sauce – (Optional)
To taste Salt
4 – 5 Tbsps Oil

Steps

  1. Wash and soak the rice for 30 minutes.
  2. Boil water in a big pan. Cook rice in it adding a little salt. Be careful not to overcook the rice else the frier rice would be lumpy. For best result cook the rice in a ratio of 1:2 of rice and water. Now spread the rice on a plate and keep it in the refrigerator for 30 minutes. It will prevent the rice from breaking while frying. If you can use a day old cooked rice it would be better.
  3. Now take a wok or a frying pan and fry the chopped vegetables and keep them aside. Do not overcook the vegetables; let it be a little crunchy. Fry the shrimps and remove them.
  4. Heat some more oil in the same pan and add the chopped garlic and green chillies. Fry it in a low heat and slowly add rice, fried shrimps and fried vegetables. Add vinegar, salt and black pepper powder to it. Mix it well and fry it for about 5-6 minutes on medium heat.
  5. Your prawn fried rice is ready to be served.

Note:

~ I like my fried rice without soy sauce. If you wish you can add soy sauce too.
