Recipes: Perfect Homestyle Prawn Fried Rice

Hello Bees!! Fried rice, the name is well enough to describe the dish, no introduction needed I guess. We Indian (most of us) love Chinese food, but in our way. That’s why most of the dishes are called Indo-Chinese. Whenever we go for eating out, I have an intensive intention to order

fried rice(in any form). But as it has marked as fast food, so restaurant chefs mostly use horrific amount of oil in the dish.  Then I thought to make it at home without any store bought mixes, just with right amount of sauces, vinegar, no added taste enhancer such as ajinomoto and voila!!! It taste so good in this way that you never crave for restaurant style

fried rice. Go ahead and make it for a quick fix on your weekdays busy dinner party. I have added prawn/shrimp in this recipe. Now you really want to know about frying the prawn in a right way. Prawn can not be under cooked or over cooked. If you under cook, you will get a smelly pieces or if you over cook, then you will get rubbery pieces in mouth. So be sure to check my recipe video for such tips/tricks to make a perfect home style fried rice.
