If you like Indo-Chinese/Chinese takeout food then do try these Chinese food recipes:

I love takeout food but that is so much money for so less to protein you will get in a takeout portion. There will be hardly 3 to 4 shrimps in a single portion of fried rice but when you cook at home you will be able to add as much quantity of protein you like.

This recipe is very customizable - add your choice of protein,seafood you like- go for Chicken/Pork/Beef or Squids/Clams/Mussels you like to add.

Also add whatever veggies you have in the refrigerator- use corn kernels,frozen vegetables whatever you have,cauliflower,cabbage,bell peppers- just add what you like and it will be still so amazing.

How to make /  Steps to make better than takeout Shrimp Fried Rice:

Soak the rice at least for an hour and then cook it. Refrigerate rice before using in this recipe. 

Preferably cook the rice the night before when you plan to cook the fried rice. If the refrigerated rice is hardened to form lumps then just break the rice lumps lightly with hands before using it in the recipe.

In a mixing bowl,mix together all the ingredients for the sauce.

In a separate bowl whisk eggs,salt,white pepper powder with little rice wine vinegar.

Always cook vegetables on high heat in a work or any kind of deep pan would work but make sure you have applied oil to it well or else rice will stick to it.

In a pan,add butter and fry the shrimps marinated with salt,black pepper powder and a teaspoon of sauce mix. 

    Cook till shrimp are soft and cooked well. Keep them aside.

      In the same pan,add little more butter and add the eggs and scramble them into tiny pieces and keep aside.

      In the pan,add sesame oil or vegetable oil + butter,add the veggies,toss them till soft,add the rice,shrimp,eggs and sauce mix and cook/toss them on high heat till its well cooked.

        Shrimp: Use the best shrimp you  can get your hands on.Fresh one's are best but frozen ones are not any less.Plus using frozen ones will save so much on time and money too.Fresh shrimp are pretty expensive and frozen ones are not that much.For this recipe use small to medium sized shrimps.

        Eggs:  Scramble eggs on high heat for that extra flavor in this fried rice.

        Peas,carrots or any veggies you like: I have used frozen peas and carrots chopped.You can use use any veggies you like.Try adding thinly sliced cabbage,sliced green bell pepper.

        Rice: Try using Jasmine Rice or any rice which cooks well but wont get mushy.You can always try Basmati rice too but do not overcook it.

        Sauce Mix: Sauce mix is the key to perfect fried rice.May be its Chicken Fried Rice,Egg Fried Rice or any Seafood Fried Rice, sauce mix is the key to get the right fried rice. Here I have mixed Sesame Oil,Brown Sugar,White pepper Powder,Rice Wine Vinegar,Oyster Sauce and soy sauce.

        Can I refrigerate the leftover Shrimp Fried Rice?

        Yes of course! Just refrigerate in a bowl/container and reheat in microwave as and when you want to use it.

        Do not refrigerate for more than 3 days as there are chances of rice getting spoiled.
