How To Make Prawn Fried Rice

It's about 32 more hours till we land up in Kolkata for Durga Puja festivals and to compound things further I have not even completed fifty percent of the packing. More so I have to pack only the essential stuff as the Airlines have limited their check baggage to a measly 15 kgs. So racing against time. 

Also,I have been trying to cook most of my frozen food items before I travel and one of the last items that I prepared was Prawn Fried Rice. Was simple enough to prepare and looked well done. Pics are for all of you to judge. 

1.5 cups Rice
1 cup small Prawns, cleaned and de-veined
2 Green chillies, minced
5-6 Garlic pods, minced
1/2 cup chopped French Beans
1 cup shredded Cabbage
1 big Onion, cut into thin slices
2 tsp Sesame seeds
1 tbsp Tomato sauce
1 tbsp Tabasco Hot chilly sauce
1 tbsp Vinegar
1 tbsp Light Soya Sauce
Freshly grounded pepper powder
1/2 Lemon juice
Salt to taste

Marinate the prawns by sprinkling some salt and chilly powder and lemon juice in a bowl. Keep aside for 15 minutes. Heat oil in a wok or kadhai and fry these prawns on high flame for few seconds only (if you over fry prawns they will taste rubber later !). Keep aside.

Wash and soak the rice in enough water for 30 minutes. Now put the stove on high flame and leave too cook. Add little salt and 2 tsp oil, when the water starts boiling lower the flame and keep an eye. This stage is very crucial as you need to check the grains if they are done. Don't over cook as the end result be mushy rice. Drain and remove the lid and let the steam pass off. Fluff the rice with a fork and let the rice cool completely.

In a wok or Kadai heat oil and add sesame seeds, garlic, onions and fry it on high flame. Add cabbage, beans, fry for 3-4 minutes and mix well. Add rice into the wok and season with salt and pepper powder. Add all the sauces, fried prawns and toss everything on high flame for few seconds. Ensuring that the rice grains are intact while mixing. Serve hot !
