The key for a perfect fried rice is the rice, you have to cook it till it is aldente or perfectly fluffy. And if you use pervious day cooked rice, then your fried rice will be even better. I started by making a marination for prawns and sauteing them separately then adding that to rice, because i wanted the prawn to have as much flavour as the rice has.
Just as a teaser, i made chilli prawns and grilled prawns too..Yet to make 4 more prawn recipes as well. I hope you will love this and let me know how it turns out for you..
