Prawn Rice recipe – இறால் சோறு
This recipe is not a fried rice kind of recipe nor a prawn biryani but a south indian style spicy instant prawn rice which can be done in a minimum of 15 mins. The method of preparing this prawn rice is very easy, first I cooked the rice then prepared a spicy prawn masala and mixed together for a nice taste added more onions. I took almost 2 glass of basmati rice and soaked for 30 mins then later cooked the rice with some spices like bay leaves, star anise, cinnamon, cardamom and cloves some salt to taste. Along with that I have added 1 tsp oil, you can also add ghee to enhance the flavor and taste. And the most important thing is cooking rice to 98% so that its not mushy and the grains are seperate while mixing. Prepare the prawn masala little spicy so that it tastes good when mixed up with rice. You can follow the same method in preparing chicken rice, fish rice etc.
