This is my first try on 'Prawn Biriyani' and I pretty much nailed it. I have made this biriyani in classic way, everything is cooked by 'dum' and also in sealed vessel. The taste and aroma was phenomenal. The flavour of fresh shrimps and long grain basmati rice gave this dish a unique taste, very much different from chicken / mutton biriyani. We both enjoyed it with chicken curry. You have to try this biriyani in your kitchen and let me know how it turns out for you.
