    3. Puree the green chilli pickle and mix well with curd.
    4. In a bowl, marinade the prawns with this paste and keep aside for at least 30 minutes.
    5. In the meantime, pressure-cook the rice (make sure each grain separates easily on cooking). Keep aside and let it cool.
    6. Heat 2 tbsp of oil in a large non-stick skillet, add the chopped onions and marinated prawns and fry together until golden brown.
    7. Add the marinated gravy, tandoori mix and lemon juice, and cook until it gets dry. Keep aside.
    8. 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.
