Prawn / Shrimp Briyani - Pressure cooker

I always thought to make Briyani using Prawn but hesitate to do so. Because i thought the prawn smell will ruin the Briyani taste. This recipe doesn't have any prawn smell and tastes very good. The Prawn absorbs the spice masala and also cooked well. Tried this for first time and come out very well.

Prawns / Shrimp            11/2 lb

Basmati rice                   11/2 cup

Onion                             1 medium

Bay leaves                  2 -3

Cinnamon                  2 Nos

clove                         4 Nos

Cardamom               2 Nos

Fennel seeds          1 tsp (Crushed)

Wash and Soak basmati rice in water for 20 minutes.

Clean prawn and marinate it with 1/4 tsp chilli powder,turmeric powder,lemon juice and salt. keep it for 15 - 20 minutes before cooking.

Heat oil in a pressure cooker , add the item under To temper , once splutter add ginger garlic paste and cook till raw smell goes.
