Here I prepared mixed fried rice typically in Indian style with veggies, shrimp and eggs. It can be a lunch box menu or a nice party dish for main coarse. You may say it is a mixed up of veggies, eggs and shrimp; so it is called a mixed fried rice. A delightful style of one pot scrumptious meal, a wonderful Indian recipe. Here, I stated a really appetizing mouthwatering rice dish with easiest way of preparation.
4 Cups Basmati Rice
4 Eggs
7 OZ / 200 gm Cooked Shrimp
2 Carrot, cut in 1" thin slices
1 medium Onion, thinly slices
1 Green Bell Pepper, chopped
1 small bunch of Green Onions, finely chopped
2/3 cup Green Peas (frozen)
1 tsp minced Ginger
2" Cinnamon
6 pods Cardamoms
4 pods Cloves
10-12 Black Peppercorns
1/4 tsp Turmeric powder
1 tsp Freshly Pounded Garam Masala
1/3 tsp Ground Netmug
2 Pinches of black pepper powder
1 tbsp + 2 tbsps Oil
1 tbsp Clarified butter
Salt to taste

Chop cooked shrimp in 2-3 pieces, wash nicely.
Add turmeric powder and little salt in it. Set aside.
Wash and soak basmati rice in water for 30 minutes. Drain water and keep aside.
Boil water in a pan. Add cinnamon, cardamoms, cloves, black peppercorns and little salt in it. When water starts to boil, add rice in it.
Cover and cook for 15 minutes in low heat. Remove from heat when rice almost 3/4th done. Drain water completely and spead it over a flat surface.
Now heat 1 tbsp oil in a large non stick pan. Break 4 eggs in it. Sprinkle salt and pepper powder in it. Set it for 2-3 minutes.
Now make scrambled egg with these four eggs. Remove from pan and set aside.
Heat the remaining oil with clarified butter in the same pan. Add minced ginger in it. Saute for 40 seconds. Now add onion in it. when onion gets translucent, add carrot, bell pepper, green peas, chopped shrimp and salt in it. Fry for 4-5 minutes. Add garam masala and nutmeg powder in it. Fry for 2 minutes.
Add cooked rice, scrambled egg, green onion in it. Fold nicely. Fry for 3-4 minutes on medium heat. Switched off heat now.
Serve hot with any curry or gravy. This mixed fried rice is itself an one-pot meal.
