Prawn Stir Fried Rice

By Shazia @diary_of_a_home

After my Prawn Curry and Prawn Toast recipe this stir fried rice is not only very much in demand but rather easy to make. I am always eager to stir up a batch of Prawn Fried Rice whenever I  am short of time.
I like recipes that don't require long trips to the supermarket. Mostly I like cooking my meals with readily available ingredients. I always keep prawns in my freezer because I use them in a lot of recipes.
In this recipe I am using some seasonal vegetables along with prawns. I like to use light soy sauce but you can use dark soy sauce if you like.  I love adding a dash of chili sauce for a nice kick.
Prawn fried rice is a delicious one pot meal it contains each and every entity of  what a complete meal should be. I like to whip up one pot meals for one simple reason.... minimal effort, lesser clean up.
This prawn fried rice is also ideal for freezing, you can prepare a double doze and freeze half for using later on.
