Spicy Prawns Fried Rice

Everytime I make this my husband and kid starts eating the prawns from the pan itself. This time I begged them to leave a few for taking some snaps. So I had to pick some and keep on top to say it is a prawns fried rice. This is a spicy rice and you can vary the pepper according to your spice level. Also you can substitute prawns with cooked shredded chicken and make it a chicken rice.

You need
  • Prawns - 1 cup of medium size prawns.
  • Basmati rice - 1 and 1/2 cups
  • Carrot - 1 big diced
  • Beans - 20 nos. diced
  • Garlic - 2 cloves
  • Ginger - 1 medium size 
  • Green chilli - 3
  • Onion - 1 big chopped
  • Spring onion - 1 bunch
  • Pepper powder - 2 tsp
  • Soya sauce - 2 tsp
  • Oil for sauteeing
  • Salt to taste

  • Clean the prawns and cut it into small pieces
  • Cook basmati rice in enough water, add salt and allow it to cool really well. (Avoid overcooking)
  • In a thick bottomed big vessel heat oil
  • Add finely chopped ginger, garlic and green chillies
  • When the colour changes add finely chopped onions and saute until pink & transparent.
  • Add diced carrots and beans. Add soya sauce. Lower flame and saute until they're cooked but yet crunchy.
  • To the above add prawns and saute. (It takes only 2-4 minutes to cook prawns)
  • Add pepper powder and salt to taste (remember you've used soya sauce above. It contains salt, so add salt here accordingly)
  • Finally add the cooled cooked rice and chopped spring onions. Mix well on flame. Stir fry for 2 minutes. 
  • Serve warm with any chinese side dish like manjurian
