Prawns fried rice with fish sauce

Prawns fried rice with fish sauce is different from other fried rice as in this I have not used any soya sauce and eggs also. In this fish sauce is added and some vegetables, you can add any vegetables which you like. With the same ingredients you can make chicken fried rice also. I have used small prawns and which is already boiled. This is very easy to make and gets cooked fast, if you chop the vegetables and keep it aside.
