Prawn Biryani–

Everyone loves Biryani ===

It can be made with pretty much anything you want, but our love for prawns made me try out a hand on prawn biryani —   and what to say it turned into a yummy , delicious  dish with succulent, perfectly cooked prawns in fragrant basmati rice —-

Star Ingredient :


Main Ingredients :

  • 4 cups of basmati rice
  • Prawns 500 gms
  • Ghee 2 tbsp

  • Onion – 2 large sliced
  • Tomato one large sliced

  • 2 green chilli
  • tsp of red chilli powder

  • 3 tbsp of curd
  • salt to taste
  • coriander leaves 1/4 cup
  • mint leaves 1/4 cup
  • saffron a pinch
  • 1/2 cup of warm milk

Method :

Marinating Prawns:

Marinate the prawns with ginger garlic paste, curd, salt , chilli powder, turmeric powder for 30 minutes.

Wash and soak the basmati rice for 30 minutes.

Fry the onions till light brown. (Beresta)

Keep some strands of saffron in warm milk.

After 30 minutes cook the rice till al dante. drain and keep aside.

Heat ghee and oil (mixed together ) in a pan . Add in the prawns  together with the marinated masala , mix well  and  cook in a medium flame , until the prawns are cooked well.  Keep aside.

Assembling :

Cover it with a tight lid and put it on dum for 10 to 15 minutes.
