Ingredients

How to Make Achari Prawn Pulao

  • Wash, shell and de-vein the prawns. Pat dry and keep aside.
  • Dry-roast the mustard, fennel, cumin and fenugreek seeds separately and blend them together into a fine powder.
  • Puree the green chilli pickle and mix well with curd.
  • In a bowl, marinade the prawns with this paste and keep aside for at least 30 minutes.
  • In the meantime, pressure-cook the rice (make sure each grain separates easily on cooking). Keep aside and let it cool.
  • Heat 2 tbsp of oil in a large non-stick skillet, add the chopped onions and marinated prawns and fry together until golden brown.
  • Add the marinated gravy, tandoori mix and lemon juice, and cook until it gets dry. Keep aside.
  • In the same pan, heat 1 tbsp of oil. Add the cardamom, cinnamon, caraway seeds and cloves and fry. On sputtering, add the rice, prawns with gravy and toss gently for a few minutes. Add salt to taste.
  • Serve hot with any curry of your choice.
