No Biryani lover can deny their love for the various types of Biryanis that can be found across the country. This one pot meal is a must-have item in a royal feast due to its flavoursome appeal. One such yummy type of biryani is spicy Prawn Biryani. This delectable non-vegetarian main dish, is one of the easier types of biryanis to be prepared because prawns do not require as much marination time as chicken or mutton does.
Firstly, the prawns need to be cleaned and marinated it with salt, haldi powder, 1 tsp. ginger-garlic paste, and ½ a tbsp. of chilli powder. Set this marinated prawn mixture aside for 10 minutes and also, at the same time, proceed to soak rice for half an hour. Then, cooked the prawns in a heated pan on low heat till the water absorbs, and set it aside for a second time. Next, you need to prepare the spice mixture for the biryani. For this, you need to add cashew nuts, caraway seeds, poppy seeds, cinnamon, mace, cardamom, cloves and bay leaves to heated oil and fry them, before adding ginger-garlic pastes, green chillies and chopped onions, and frying them. Next, you need to add the spices – garam masala, coriander powder, haldi powder, chilli powder – and chopped tomatoes, and fry all of them. Next, add the prawns to coat them with the mixture, and then add the soaked rice as well as a little butter to add to the taste. Cover and cook till the rice is done and garnish with chopped coriander leaves. Serve your prawn biryani with raita and have a wonderful meal.
