Fried Rice with Prawns, Potatoes and LettuceLike some other classic recipes, fried rice can also be made in infinitely different ways. Generally, I do not add potatoes in fried rice but this one is quite different. Apart from my favorite prawns, I've also added the king of vegetables to give it a twist. This recipe is based on South East Asian fried rice ingredients and can be changed as per your preferences. You can easily keep this fried rice in refrigerated form for up to 2 days. If tiger prawns are available in your locality, nothing can be better than that. Otherwise, you can use any prawn variety. My family prefers to eat it with flavored condensed coconut milk. Let's quickly make this yummy and aromatic fried rice recipe for our family members in a few steps.
