Inspired from Sanjeev Kapoors pulao recipe...but well,I added some madness from my side too ...

Its a rich n spicy pulao.I served it with raita...but it was so moist that I had it with just plain achar....yummmm

Prawns 1/2_kg washed,drained and marinated with a little turmeric and salt.
2 cups basmati rice
Two medium onions chopped
One cup of coconut milk and three cups water (to make the 4 cups of liq for 2 cups if rice)
Half cup of peas
One tsp jeera

To grind
5 dried red chilly
1 inch pc of cinnamon
2 cardamom
2 to 4 cloves
3 to 4 cloves of garlic
A fist full each,of coriander leaves and mint leaves .
A few tbsp of water to grind to a smooth paste

In a cooker,heat oil.Add a tsp of jeera.when it splutters add the chopped onions.Saute till golden brown.Add the prawns,the ground masala ,peas and the rice.
Saute well.
