RM#2 Day 24 - Prawn Briyani

Prawns r good source of Omega 3 fatty acids, they r also excellent source of protein...having prawns is one of the greatest way to get iron, zinc n vitamin E...they r low in saturated fats...I love prawns, this briyani is one of the simplest way of preparing prawns with rice...adding prawns to any veggies r with rice, makes them more comes my simple way of preparing prawn briyani..

1cup Cleaned Prawns
1no Onion chopped lengthwise
2nos Ripe n juicy tomatoes chopped
1tsp Ginger paste
1tsp Garlic paste
2nos Green chillies slit opened
1tsp Red chilli powder
1/2tsp Garam masala powder
2Cups Basmati rice
2cups Coconut milk
1cup Yoghurt
Ghee+oil as per need
1/2cup Mint leaves chopped
2nos Whole spices(bayleaves, cinnamon sticks, cardamom,star anise, cloves)

Marinate the prawns with red chilli powder, garam masala powder, salt n also with half a cup of yoghurt for half an hour...Heat ghee n oil in a heavy bottomed vessel... add the whole spices to the hot oil n ghee n let them add the chopped lengthwise onions n finely chopped tomato pieces with slight opened green chillies..stir them until they get bit cooked, add the ginger garlic paste n fry them until the raw smells goes away...

Now add the marinated prawns to the vessel...heat 2tsp of ghee separately in a pan, dry fry the washed basmati rice for few minutes...mix now both coconut milk, remaining yoghurt n make them as 3+half cup by adding some more water...pour this coconut milk -yoghurt to the cooking spiced prawns...add the chopped mint leaves also...bring everything to boil..

Add the already fried basmati rice to the gravy..cook them well in medium high flame until the gravy gets absorbed by the rice...garnish them with few mint leaves...
Serve hot with any choice of Raithas!!!!
