Here is the video of how to make Prawn Fried Rice

We will be using basmati rice for making fried rice. The whole idea is to get the texture right. Its very important that the grains of rice do not turn mushy. Here is how I do it. Wash and soak the basmati rice in water for 15-30 minutes. 15 minutes for regular basmati rice and 30 minutes for aged rice. Drain the water. Add 1.5 cups of water to every cup of rice used. Add half a teaspoon of salt. Cook in a pressure cooker, medium flame – for exactly 2 whistles. Switch off the flame and allow it to rest for 15 minutes. The pressure will release on its own during that time.

After 15 minutes, open the cooker and fluff up the rice. Immediately, transfer the rice to 2-3 plates to cool it down completely. The rice needs to be completely cool before you start cooking the fried rice.
Note: For a very dry rice, release the pressure manually after 5 minutes.

Clean and de-vein the prawns. Small or medium size prawns work well for this recipe. Marinate the prawns in soy sauce and black pepper powder for 10 minutes.

Heat oil in a pan and add in the prawns and cook the prawns for 3-4 minutes. Do not cook the prawns for long as it will become rubbery. Remove the cooked prawns to a pan and set aside. Note: Cook the prawns in batches and do not over crowd the pan.

In the same pan scramble a couple of eggs. Sprinkle salt and pepper while scrambling. Set aside on a plate to cool.

Heat oil in a pan and add in the finely chopped ginger and garlic. Saute for a minute. Add in the finely chopped onions and capsicum. Add in the salt and saute till the onions are soft. Add in the soy sauce and half a teaspoon of sugar. Saute for a couple of minutes more. The addition of sugar balances the flavour.

Add in the cooked prawns, scrambled eggs and the cooked rice. I also added cooked green peas as I like the flavour of peas in fried rice. Add in the finely chopped spring onions and coriander leaves.

Mix well to combine. Let the rice heat up, so it can absorb all the flavours. Saute for 2-3 minutes.
