Prawns Pulav

Prawns pulav is a simple and an easy dish to prepare within minutes. I made this within 30 minutes before going out as I had marinated prawns kept in the freezer for frying. To avoid consuming too much of oil if fried stuff, I thought of an easy way to have this marinated prawns and it came out perfect.

The perfect blend of spices and the flavors of prawns combined in rice makes this a very tasty and yummy pulav which each and every prawn lover would love to try.
Poppy seeds will be always there in my kitchen as I like to add them in chicken or egg gravy. Just take a spoonful and grind along with tomatoes or anything that goes well with it.

  1. Prawns (washed and deveined)- 100 gms
  2. Onions (sliced)- 3 nos
  3. Red Chilli powder- 2 tbsp
  4. Turmeric powder- 1 tsp
  5. Pepper powder- 1 tsp
  6. Salt- as required
  7. Cloves- 4 nos
  8. Cinnamon- 1 no

  1. Grind the ingredients that are in “the grind” to a fine paste. Keep this aside
  2. Wash and soak the rice for about 15- 20 minutes.
  3. Marinate the prawns with red chilli powder, turmeric powder, pepper powder and salt for about 2 hrs.
  4. Heat oil in a pressure cooker and splutter the cloves, cinnamon and cardamom seeds. Add the sliced onions and when they turn translucent add the ground mixture and stir till the raw smell disappears.
