Many people like prawns.Even i am a fan of prawns...:))...Many tasty dishes can be made from prawns...Today i am posting one of them.Prawns biryani is realy tasty and can be made in no time. This recipe is my experiment.This is very simple and easy recipe. I took the recipe of my egg biryani and modified it a bit and made prawns and belive me it became realy spicy as i like and tasty...
2 cups basmati rice
1 cup prawns( shell removed and cleaned)
2 medium sized onions chopped
1 table spoon ginger garlic paste
1/2 teaspoon chilli powder
1 teaspoon garam masala
1 teaspoon turmeric
1 teaspoon corainder powder
1 veg maggi cube
3-4 bay leaves
Apply salt and little turmeric to the prawns.
Take a pan and add ghee and fry the onions in it till they become translucent.Now add the ginger garlic paste and mix well.Fry for 2 mins.
Now add the prawns to it. Add turmeric.In this dish small prawns are preferred over big ones as they give a nice aroma to the dish. If you have big prawns cut them in small pieces and use.Fry the prawns till they get gt cooked for 7-8 mins and get bit golden colour.
Meanwhile soak the rice in water and spread it on cloth so that all the water drains out. Add a teaspoon of oil to the rice before spreading as this helps to separate the rice after cooking and it does not get sticked to each other.Let it be on cloth for 30 mins.
Now take a pan and add ghee. Now add all the whole masalas like cinnamon, cloves, peppers and bay leaves. Fry them for 2 mins and add the rice to it. Fry the rice for 5 mins.
Now add the fried rice to the vessel containing the prawns mixture. Add 1 and 3/4 cups of water. If more water required add later.Now add the chilli powder, garam masala, corainder powder,powdered maggi cube and salt.
Close the lid and let the rice cook.Check for 10 mins if the rice is done. when the rice is almost cooked sprinkle juice of lemon on it.
Remove from flame.
Its ready .Serve Hot.
NOTE: Small prawns are prefered in this dish as they get mixed well and give a nice aroma.If using bigger prawns cut them in small pieces and use.
