Cauliflower Prawns rice

Cauliflower Prawns rice

 This recipe is inspired from vegetable biryani, I once tried at a restaurant. It had fried cauliflower in it as garnish and tasted delicious. I made this prawns rice and added  crispy cauliflower fitters. It is a delicious and filling rice.Serve this is papad and pickle.

Basmathi rice-  1 1/2 cups
Prawns- 15
Celery chopped- 1/3 cup
Green peas- 1/3 cup (or vegetable of your choice)
Finely minced cauliflower- 1/2 cup
Onion- 1 medium
Green chilly - 3-4
Ginger garlic paste- 1 1/2 tsp
Turmeric powder- 1/3 tsp

Garam masala - 1/2 tsp
Ghee- 1 tbs
Bay leaf-1
Salt to taste

For the fitters
Cauliflower florets- 1 cup
Chilly powder- 1/2 tsp
Fennel powder- 1/2 tsp
Turmeric powder- a pinch
Corn starch- 2 tbs
Flour- 2 tbs
Oil for frying
Salt to taste

Heat ghee in a heavy bottom pan. Add bay leaf and ginger garlic paste and saute till raw flavor disappears.Add onion, green chilly,chopped celery and saute for two to three minutes. Next add green peas, chopped cauliflower,turmeric powder, garam masala salt and the cleaned prawns. Saute for two to three minutes till the prawns changes color. Add the rice and mix along with 3 1/3 cups of water. Cover and cook till the rice is cooked and all the water is absorbed. Make the rice fluffy using a fork and set aside.
To make the fitters,mix all the ingredients (except cauliflower and oil) to make a medium thick batter. Dip each cauliflower floret into the batter and drop into hot oil. Fry till it is nice and crispy.Mix this with rice along with lemon juice and serve with papad and pickle.
