Prawn Fried Rice Recipe

A quick and easy one pot rice recipe is the Fried Rice. I picked up this recipe from my sis-in-law back then when I used to visit them in a countryside. This is almost exactly her recipe.

It is a great way to use left over rice or prepare it quickly for many servings.

Preparation time: 15 minutes

Cooking time: 20 minutes (plus cooking rice 20 mins)


Oil – Vegetable/Olive


Green bell pepper – 1

Red bell pepper – 1

Green beans – 1/2 cup

Carrots – 1/2 cup


For the rice:

Cooked rice – 1 cup, (I used freshly cooked rice, you can also use left-over rice)

Ground black pepper – 1 tsp

Sweet chili sauce – 2 tbsp

Chicken stock – 1 cube, mixed in warm water

Spring onion – 1/2 cup, chopped

Prawns – 1 cup, whole or halved (I cut them into halves)

pepper powder  – pinch (for prawn)

Red chili powder – pinch (for prawn)

Egg – 2, lightly beaten with addition of a pinch of salt






1. Cut the ingredients into uniform size for an easy stir-fry. Set them aside.


green beans, carrots



2. Heat a wok or deep pan with 1 tsp of oil.Swirl the pan to coat the pan evenly. To determine the wok is hot enough flick droplets of water, they will evaporate in a matter of seconds (make sure not to overheat). Now, its ready to stir-fry the ingredients.


3. Stir Fry:

Add the beaten eggs, stir-fry and scramble using a wooden spatula for 1- 2 minutes. Transfer it on a large plate.


Then add the carrots and green beans. Fry till tender crisp, for couple of minutes (I fried this separately as it takes longer time to be crispy-tender). Transfer into the same plate containing eggs.

Then, stir-fry peppers until tender crisp. Transfer to the plate.

Do the same for prawns, add 1/4 tsp salt, pepper powder, red chili powder, stir-fry on high till it turns slightly brown. Set it aside in the plate.
