How to make it

  • For the Rice:
  • Boil water, add rice with the remaining ingredients. Bring to a boil then simmer for 10 mins. Fluff the rice with a fork once it's done.
  • For the Prawns:
  • Marinate the Prawns with the turmeric and chilli powder and refrigerate for 20 mins.
  • Heat the butter in a pan and fry the Prawns till they turn slightly brown. Remove from the pan.
  • Add sliced onions to this pan and fry till brown, add ginger-garlic-chili paste to this and fry till the raw smell of the ginger/garlic disappears.
  • Add coriander powder and stir into this mix.
  • Add 1/2 a cup of water and salt to taste.
  • When this gravy begins to thicken add the fried prawns, lime juice, cilantro, mint and the spice mix (reserve a 1/4 tsp for later)
  • Stir well and remove from heat.
  • Layering the dish:
  • Add 2 tbsp of butter to a deep dish.
  • Layer half the rice over the butter followed by the Prawns. Sprinkle the 1/4 tsp of Spice Mix you had reserved earlier. Spread the remaining rice over the prawns.
  • Drizzle a little melted butter over the rice.
  • Cover with a lid or aluminium foil.
  • Put this dish in a preheated oven at 350F for 30 mins/ simmer on a stove top for 20mins.
  • Serve hot!
