Shrimp Fried Rice


The other day we were at Costco and bought some good sized lobster. So at dinner I cooked lobster with fried rice. In this post I’ll cover how I made the fried rice and in a later post the lobster.

Ingredients IMG_7518

  1. Basmati or any Long grain rice - 500 gms
  2. Carrot - 1 cup finely chopped
  3. Beans - 1/2 cup finely chopped
  4. Green Bell Pepper - 1 cup finely chopped
  5. Garlic Paste -  1tb spoon
  6. Shrimp - 1/2 cup cleaned (you can avoid if you want to)
  7. Black pepper powder - 1 tea spoon
  8. Salt


Boil the rice in a open pan and drain the water. You need to be careful so the rice doesn't get over cooked. If you are not confident enough to drain the water safely, you can cook the rice as you would in a ratio of 1:2 of rice and water. Now spread the rice on a plate and keep it in the refrigerator for 30 mins. It will prevent the rice from breaking while frying.

Now take a wok or a frying pan and fry the chopped vegetables and keep them aside. Fry the shrimps and remove them.

Heat oil in a frying pan and  add the garlic paste. Fry it in a low heat and slowly add  rice, fried shrimps and vegetables. Add salt and black pepper powder to it. Mix it well and fry it for about 5 minutes on medium heat.

Your fried rice is ready to be served
