Prawn Fried Rice!

imageI love one pot meals like salads, soups or rice/ noodle dishes. I have a big family and it works well for me.

This is another one meal option, fried rice.

The most important thing to understand about fried rice , that it should be “fried”, not soggy at all. In order to achieve that you have to prepare rice first.

1 cup of rice, prepare as normal, I do it in a rice cooker. Spread it in a wide dish and leave in the fridge overnight. Just before you go to sleep break it with a fork or hands to a small pieces.

In the morning, take it out and completely break it, so each grain is separated ( it’s not hard to do at all) and leave it in a fridge until cooking time.


Prawns-250g, each cut in 3-4 pieces.

Carrot-1 grated

Green peas( frozen)- 2/3 cup

Onion-1 large, cut in half rings

Garlic-3 cloves chopped

Soy sauce- 3 tablespoons

Chili sauce- to taste


Spring onions chopped for a finishing touch.


Prepare rice as mentioned above.

Heat an oil in a wok, add onions, garlic, keep stirring till onions softened, add peas and a carrot, keep stirring. And than add prawns, cover it for a minute, keep stirring.

At this stage I put container with rice next to my wok and start adding a handful of rice at a time and mixing it with a prawn vege mixture. Do that until rice is finished.

Sprinkle with spring onions and serve.

    I make this one at home. And it sometimes depends on the availability of ingredients. Sometimes I use beef, pork, or chicken (left overs HEHE) instead of prawns. My version contains egg, shredded cabbage or chopped kangkong (swamp cabbage?). I add a bit of sesame oil as well just for the aroma. 😀 This is what I like about fried rice because you can basically throw stuff in depending on your preference. It is such a versatile dish. 🙂

      Absolutely agree! you can make many variations of fried rice. “Anything goes” lol, that is why i do not order it in restaurants, as they intend to dump all the leftovers there.
