Biriyani with shrimps MADE WITH LOVE BY ROJA
HOW TO MAKE
1. Fry the onions golden brown in oil.
2. Boil water with bay leaves, cloves, cinnamon and salt to cook the basmati rice
3. On the same pot onto which you were frying onion: take half of the onions out and leave the other half in it. Now add chopped tomatoes, ginger & garlic paste, coriander leaves and mint leaves.
4. Here I have added the marinated chicken (marinated with salt, chilli powder, turmeric powder and little bit of lemon). On the dish that I served you, I replaced it with Shrimps.
5. Now added turmeric powder, chilli powder, garam masala and ready made briyani masala. Plus juice from half a lime.
6. Add the soaked basmati rice to the boiling water with salt, bay leaves, cloves and cinnamon.
7. Drain the half cooked rice from the above pot to the one with chicken, onions, tomatoes and masala. It takes like 8 minutes for the basmati to be half cooked.
Add the second half of the fried onions on top.
8. Close the lid on the pot with rice and layer below with protein & spices. Cook slowly in medium or low flame for about 15 minutes.
With shrimps, I did not half cook it like chicken. Added the shrimps, gave a quick stir and added the half cooked rice on it. Otherwise shrimps would become overcooked.
For the shrimps, you can clean them and add it. No marination needed.
