10.13.16 Had my doubts about the apple in fried rice, but was I ever pleasantly surprised. First, I think I had the best Gala apple ever (seriously crisp and sweet), but what that apple brings to this recipe is really unique, the perfect complement to the shrimp and curry I might add. Wouldn't change a thing, we loved it. LHOON thanks for sharing an outstanding recipe, one that will be made again (and again) in this house.-13 Oct 2016

Prawn Biryani

This Biryani recipe is like many other Biryani recipes in that fluffy Rice and a rich curry is layered along with other bits such as vegetables in one large pot over low heat. In this recipe, we stick to the prawns only.

In terms of Biryani, there are so many varieties and versions out there. We have

and some versions where both the main elements are served separately.

What is Biryani

Biryani is a layered dish where each layer is slow cooked with herbs and spices and then the layers are combined and layered together where the curry bubbles away with the rice and all the flavours come together in perfect harmony.

In this version, because the protein is prawns, the curry element differs slightly so that we don’t end up with tough chewy prawns.

I am sharing my mum’s version soon, which is my favourite and also the favourite of many of mine and my siblings friends.

This Burmese prawn curry is the recipe featured in our first ever Cooking with Grandma video. In the video, Alvina Mangrai shows her granddaughter Alyssa how to make the curry that she first learned to make when she was pregnant and living in the United States after moving from Burma. Pat Tanumihardja, author of the blog The Asian Grandmothers Cookbook, transcribed the recipe and shared it with CHOW . She’ll also include it in her book, due out in either late 2009 or early 2010. This curry can be served with Alvina’s coconut rice, also shown in the video.

What to buy: Sambal oelek is a straight-up chile sauce, without garlic or any other flavors added. It is commonly used in Asian cooking and can be found in the Asian section of your market or online.

Ingredients of Prawn Fried Rice

  • 80 gm frozen peas
  • 2 tablespoon corn
  • 8 spring onions
  • 300 gm basmati rice
  • 150 gm prawns
  • 2 1/2 tablespoon soy sauce

How to make Prawn Fried Rice

Step 1

Place a pan over medium flame and pour oil in it. Once the oil is hot enough add the frozen peas along with chopped spring onions and corns to it and fry till they are tender. Once the peas appear cooked, add the left over rice to it and fry for 5-7 minutes.

Step 2

After a minute, add prawns to the pan and stir fry till they are cooked well. Switch the flame to low and cover the pan with a lid for minimum 10 minutes, keeping in mind to stir in between.

Step 3

Remove the lid and turn off the gas knob. Your prawn fried rice are now ready. Transfer them to a large serving bowl and serve hot.

Thai fried rice (khao pad ข้าวผัด)

Really quickly before we begin with this fried rice recipe, let’s go over a few details.

In Thailand, fried rice along with basil chicken (or other variations), are dishes that nearly every stir fry restaurant serves, especially common at street food stalls.

You can order Thai fried rice with your choice of meat, but one of my personal favorite versions is known in Thai as khao pad goong (ข้าวผัดกุ้ง), or fried rice with shrimp.

The reason I like it so much, because if you peel the shrimp, but leave the head on, so the oily goodness from the head of the shrimp acts like a sauce to coat the rice in red buttery shrimp flavor – it’s amazing (I’ll show you how in this recipe).

That being said, you can make this Thai fried rice recipe with shrimp or any other meat or protein you like.

Some of the ingredients you’ll need for this recipe


6 tbsp oil (vegetable, sunflower or peanut)
3 medium onions, chopped
10 garlic cloves, peeled
½ thumb-sized piece of ginger, peeled
½ bunch of coriander stalks, finely chopped, plus some leaves to garnish
2 tsp paprika
1 tsp turmeric powder
2 tsp medium chilli powder
50g creamed coconut (use the solid block type, or 50ml coconut milk would work too)
2–3 tbsp fish sauce
600g large, raw king prawns, peeled and deveined

  8. If you do not have kewra & rose essence then skip adding it. You can make biryani without it.
  9. When the prawns biryani is cooked, check at the bottom of the pan. If there is any moisture left then place the biryani pot over the tava/ griddle. Cook it on the lowest flame (do not cover with a lid) until all the moisture evaporates. Keep an eye on it otherwise the biryani may burn.
