Prawn pulav

Today I made this simple and easy prawn pulav. The flavour of prawns is so strong and it can be so aromatic with very less ingredients. Its a great recipe for picnics and other potluck parties.For seafood lovers this is a must try. Here goes the recipe...

Basmati rice - 6 cups
(soaked for 30 min)
prawns - 500grams
green peas - 200 grams
onions large - 1 nos
tomato - 2 nos
green chillies - 2 nos
ginger-garlic paste - 1 tbsp
chilly powder - 6 tbsp
cloves - 8 nos
cardamom - 6 nos
Cinnamon - 1 large stalk
bay leaves - 2 nos
prawn stock - 6 cups
Dalda - 4 tbsp
oil - 4 tbsp
salt for taste

In a pressure cooker, add dalda and oil. When hot add whole spices like cloves, cardamom, Cinnamon, bay leaves and fry. Add finely sliced onions and fry till golden brown. Add ginger- garlic paste, lengthwise slit green chillies, chilly powder and continue to fry. Now add chopped tomatoes, green peas, and prawns. Stir fry for a minute. Add rice, prawn stock and salt( it should be salty as the rice is also cooked in the same medium). Pressure cook for about 1 whistle. Serve hot.

To do prawn stock- bring to boil all the heads of prawns along with pinch of salt. strain it and use it like stock.Instead a prawn stock cube can also be used.
