Prawns Pulao




Aromatic prawns pulao is for sure a quick, simple and spicy rice recipe perfect for my lazy weekend  lunch in this freezing climate. This delectable pulao satisfied my craving for prawns biryani. But that is the magic of pulao- elegant but yet so simple with the wonderful aroma of spices and prawns making it a perfect meal.

Ingredients
Basmati Rice- 2 cups
Prawns- 1 lb
Onion- 1 medium
Tomato- 2 small
Ginger- garlic paste- 2 tsp
Turmeric powder-1/2 tsp
Chilly powder- 1 tsp
Garam masala- 1/2 tsp
Green chilly- 2
cinnamon- 1 stick
star aniseed- 2-3
Clove- 3-4
oil 
salt to taste


Cook rice with four cups of water and enough salt till it is 80% done, do not strain. Heat oil or ghee in a pan and add whole garam masala, roast for a minute and add in onion and ginger garlic paste. Fry for a minute and add tomato and saute till it is soft. Add turmeric powder, chilly powder, garam masala and prawns and saute for a minute. And the cooked rice along with the water. ( use can also do another method ie cook rice and prawns together)Prawns will shed its own water.Mix well and close the lid and allow to simmer for 4-5 minutes in a low flame. Using a fork make the rice fluffy.Serve warm.


Try this..
Hope you will all enjoy..
