MW Prawn Briyani

Today am starting blogging marathon, thanks to Srivalli for accepting me to run again this wonderful virtual friendship chain which i couldnt able to run last month coz of my vacation to India, i had an opportunity to meet Srivalli, we had a wonderful blogger meet at Chennai while am travelling in India, seriously i met wonderful blogger friends and truly admire each and everyone for their friendly attitude, i enjoyed their foods personally and loved those beautiful moments with those wonderful ladies..Check out  here other bloggers running this month's blogging marathon with me..

I prepare briyani rarely since we came back from India, yep we enjoyed varieties of briyanis there and none at home wanted to have them atleast before a month..This weekend i had an opportunity to get a bag of fresh prawns through a friend who came back from her summer vacation...Instead of making thokkus or gravies with those fresh prawns i prepared this delicious and flavourful briyani through microwave oven, whoever said no to briyani for a month,changed their mind and enjoyed thoroughly this mildly spiced fabulous briyani..


2cups Prawns (cleaned)
2cups Basmati rice
2nos Onions (chopped lengthwise)
2nos Tomatoes(chopped)
2nos Green chillies (slit opened)
1tsp Ginger paste
1tsp Garlic paste
2nos Whole spices (bayleaves, cinnamon sticks, cloves, cardamom)
1/2tsp Whole fennel seeds
1tsp Red chilly powder
1/2tsp Garam masala powder
1cup Yogurt
2cups Hot water
Salt
3tbsp Oil
Few mint leaves

Heat the oil & ghee in a large microwave safe bowl for 1 minute in high, add all the whole spices to the hot oil and heat again for 2 minutes in high..now add the chopped onions, chopped tomatoes, slit opened chillies, garlic paste, ginger paste, whole fennel seeds and cook for 5-6 minutes in high(give a stir in between), now add the cleaned prawns, red chilly powder, garam masala powder, salt and mint leaves, mix everything well and cook again for 10 minutes in high,meanwhile wash the rice twice and strain the excess of water...now add the washed rice to the prawn masala, give a stir...add now the yogurt and hot water to the bowl, check for salt and cook everything for 30minutes in high (give a stir twice in between)...

Take out the bowl and serve this delicious prawn briyani with any sort of raitas...
