This week just buzzed by!!!!!! Had a super duper hectic week with my kiddos projects and skits. Hope to have a relaxing weekend. Just want to chill and have garma garam adrak chai and pakodas…… and chill at home watching the rains. But my duties as a mom never ends. So have to cook a meal for my son! But something simple and fast ,so that my motive to chill and relax at home is also fulfilled. A simple prawn rice would do just that.Especially since I already have Prawns washed and cleaned in my freezer!



  1. Marinate the prawns with ginger garlic paste, haldi, salt, red chilli powder, dhania powder, jeera powder, pepper powder and juice of one lemon.
  2. Heat Oil in a heavy bottomed kadhai. Put in the whole garam masala and fry till it gives a nice aroma. Add the finely chopped onions and saute. Now add the marinated prawns and cook for 2 to 3 mins.
  3. Wash and drain the rice. Add the rice to the prawns and mix. Now pour in the coconut milk and add the salt. Pour in approx. 1 cup of water and cook covered on low heat till all the water evaporates.
  4. If you feel the rice is undercooked pour some water on the lid and cook for few more mins. The amount of water required depends on the quality and type of the rice. Garnish with chopped coriander leaves.
