In Indonesia, fried rice is usually sold by hawkers and they would use chicken. Prawn fried rice is reserved only in restaurants and hotels and this is more so because of food safety, prawns don’t deteriorates fast and they just don’t last inside unrefrigerated hawker vendor’s shelf, but it is a great addition to Indonesian fried rice
