  • ½ pound shrimp, peeled, deveined, leaving the tails intact

  • 3 tablespoons soy sauce or as desired
  • 1 cup water

3. Add one more tablespoon of the oil; carefully place ½ of the shrimp (preferably in a single layer); when it begins to get pale pink, turn them over & continue to cook for few more seconds and then, transfer to the plate as well. Repeat this step with the leftover shrimps.

4. Add the leftover oil; stir in the garlic and onions; continue to cook for a minute or two more, stirring occasionally.

5. Add rinsed & drained rice; sauté for a couple of seconds & then stir in the cooked shrimp, carrot, water, ground pepper and salt. Close & secure the lid of your device & press the cancel feature.

6. Select the rice mode and when the cooking cycle completes, wait for 5 minutes and let the pressure to release naturally then perform a quick release function to get rid of the leftover pressure. Remove the lid carefully & stir in the cooked peas, eggs, sesame oil, soy sauce & ground pepper, giving the ingredients a good stir using a large fork.

7. Remove the pot insert from your instant pot base & place on a wire rack for a couple of minutes to cool, before serving.
