Coconut Prawn Rice : Indian Rice

My son is very much fond of Prawn Malai Curry. But cooking it every week makes me disoriented. I feel like I am doing injustice to all the ingredients with innumerable capabilities using them in the same way again and again. So I tried this one…Riblu liked it too much. A mini discovery…

Coconut Prawn Rice with Prawn Masala

Ingredients :

Basmati Rice 500gm.
Coconut Milk 2 cups
Onion paste 2 tbsp
Garlic paste 1teasp
Ginger paste 1 tea sp
Shrimp 200 gms
Garam Masala whole 1 tb sp
sugar and Salt to taste
white Oil 2 tb sp
tarmaric powder 1 tea sp
red chili powder 1/3 tea sp

How to cook:

Step 1:

Soak the Basmati Rice in water for 40 mins. Fry the shrimps with tarmaric powder and salt ; keep aside. Add onion, garlic and ginger paste to the heated oil in a pan. Saute till the oil separates.
Add chili powder,salt and sugar to the taste. Now add the shrimps and mix well. Saute for 5 mins then keep the pan aside.

Step 2 :

Wash the rice.  Put it in a bowl. Mix the cooked prawn to it. Now pour the coconut milk. Then take a pressure cooker.  Put One tb spoon oil to it. Add the Garam Masala Whole to it. Saute for a few mins. A spicy flavour will come. Now add the prepared rice to it. Add water.  Water level will be 1 inch above the rice level.You may add sugar and salt according to your taste. Now put the pressure cooker on the oven. Switch off the oven after one whistle. Wait till the whole pressure is released. Open the cooker after 30 mins approximately. Coconut Prawn Rice is ready. It can be served with  Masala Prawn. That recipe I will write down soon.
