Burnt Garlic Prawn Fried Rice - Fusion style

 

          Check out my version of Burnt Garlic Rice in a fusion style. I added some prawns and gave a South Indian flavour to this popular dish. It did turn out very yummy. This dish is generally served with a Manchurian side dish. However, I enjoyed with some homemade Mirchi Ka Salan, a Hyderabadi delicacy. This is an ideal one-pot meal with or without any side dish. So check out the  step by step pictorial recipe to prepare it. 





         All the garlic fans out there, if you have any leftover rice, then dish out this amazing fried rice. You can add few veggies of your choice. It is a nice alternative to jeera rice or the normal veg. fried rice / plain biryani. Chicken, egg, sausages, paneer or mushroom can be substituted too, if you wish.




  • 2 cups cooked rice 
  • 250 gms. prawns, deveined & cleaned
  • 3 tbsp. oil
  • 1 whole garlic pod, finely chopped
  • 1/2 cup spring onion (white part), chopped
