Shrimp Fried Rice Recipe

Shrimp fried rice recipe

Shrimp fried rice with vegetables is my idea of a quick under 30-minute dinner idea. Packed with lots of shrimp and vegetables unlike the typical "takeaway" where a bowl of shrimp fried rice, would just have 3-4 shrimps.

 My son, loves this Chinese style shrimp fried rice so much that, I make whenever I get some fresh shrimp. Living in coastal Kerala, fresh seafood is a blessing.

Making fried rice is a breeze if you have left over cooked rice, otherwise; when I plan to make...the first thing I do is, I set a pot of water to boil to get the rice cooked. For me, fried rice is an excellent way to add vegetables into my kids diet, moms please take note of this.  Sometimes, I make vegetable fried rice the easy way.

 I lightly fried the shrimp in oil and stir fried the vegetables in the same oil....because I wanted everything to be bursting with the shrimp flavor.

Step by Step Method:
Serves: 4.

I cubed one carrot, half of a capsicum, and white part of the green onion, keep them aside.
Heat a large pan or wok or kadai.....add oil and lightly fry the sliced garlic cloves

Add in the cleaned shrimp.....let it fry for 30 seconds and then flip over and again allow it to fry for another 30 seconds.....and when it starts to turn to pink and transparent....add in half tsp pepper powder and salt. Allow it to cook and then remove it to another plate.

Into the same pan, add in the chopped white onions, stir for a few seconds....and then add in the vegetables....stir fry for a min on high heat.

Add in 1 tsp all-in-one sauce (affiliate link) and 1 tsp soy sauce and....stir!

Add 1 tsp salt and the cooked rice.
Add in 1 tsp pepper powder and the stir-fried shrimp......sprinkle with chopped green onions or spring onions.....toss the rice well and let it heat up. If needed you can add salt or a bit more soy sauce.
That's it! My easy shrimp fried rice is ready.....did it take 30 minutes??

Enjoy this easy shrimp fried rice, remember no take-aways please....making them at home is so easy and quick....all you need to add extra is a "pinch of your love".

NOTES

  • You can marinate the shrimp with soy sauce, pepper, and salt. I did not do it as the color will change a bit and like my shrimp to retain its color.
  • If you do not have left over cooked rice, just cook the rice first and make sure that the rice is only 3/4 cooked (al dente) when straining, this will help in maintaining the texture of the rice. For fried rice, it is always preferred; cold and refrigerated rice, so once it is added into the wok, allow it to heat up a bit.
  • You can also add 2 scrambled eggs into the rice.....thus making it a power packed full meal. Be careful when you add salt as the sauces have a bit of them in it, adjust them to your taste.

    1. If not using all-in-one....you should add a bit of oyster sauce and green-chilly sauce maybe half tsp each! hope this helps, though if you can find all in one....do stock that up...its excellent for Chinese dishes. I will put up an amazon link for your ease.

Puff Pastry Recipe - Homemade Puff Pastry

Puff pastry recipe: Homemade puff pastry in 15 minutes, can you believe that??  Bakery style Puff pastry is so easy to make at home that you will never buy greasy bakery puffs. The best thing about this puff pastry recipe is that; it does not need any refrigeration (chilling the dough) or any other so called difficult method, you may see when you google for "puff pastry"

Easy puff pastry can be made with the most basic ingredients and in under 15 minutes.

Back in the 80's amma started making puffs at home; which my two brothers and myself used to enjoy a lot. She mostly used to make this for special occasions; like when a friend dropped in or when we long for something bakery style.

Fast-forward to 2014; my daughter, Nidhi loves puffs and I have been asking amma to teach me how to make and somehow things did not work out when I last visited her. Right now she is visiting us here in Calicut and I coaxed and buttered her to show me how to make puffs.

The first time she tau…

All through my childhood, amma makes caramel pudding as a Sunday special.....achachen (my dad) love only this pudding...... 42 years of serving caramel pudding to him has made amma, a sort of an authority on caramel pudding recipe!

Vattayappam / Steamed Rice Cake / Kerala Style

Vattayappam is Kerala's own fermented SteamedRice Cake. One of the healthiest traditional tea time snack with almost no oil. It is popular in the Christian communities of Kerala, though not much popular in North Kerala/ Malabar.

 "Vatta" means "round" ......vattayappam is basically rice and coconut grinded together and fermented with yeast....it is very soft and pillowy.....a slightly sweet snack......these days, it has found its place in bakeries especially in Kochi and Kottayam...and when I got a request from an anonymous reader asking for vattayappam recipe...I thought of sharing the recipe...as it is very easy to make...and does not take much time to make. I usually make it as an after school snack as it is very healthy and filling for kids.
