What did I do wrong in this recipe?

On Sunday, I made a recipe from this thread Cuisines Of India - A Review With Recipes

I made the fried Rice with shrimps
But it turned out a bit mushy

What did I do wrong?
Maybe I didn't cook enough the egg before adding the rice and I had more moisture than the dish needed??

Pity because it was a great recipe with many ingredients.
It was very nice of course but not perfect

My experience with fried rice is that simply allowing the rice to cool is not enough. Fried rice (at least in China) is traditionally made for breakfast with last night's rice. The rice really needs to sit long enough for the starchy outer surface to dry out a bit. Then it will get brown and crisp, instead of cooking to a mush.
