Whenever I go out of choices and don't feel like doing much, I like to make something easy yet exciting.So here comes this prawn-rice recipe for seafood lovers with a desi tadka.So presenting my 100th post with this recipe.It's hard for me to believe that I have already reached the century.

Prawns 1 pound
Onion 1 Large
Rice(cooked) 2 cups
Bay Leaf 1
Cinnamon Stick 1 inch
Cardamom(green) 2-3
Black Peppercorns 6-7
Cloves 3-4
Lemon Juice 1 tbsp
Red Chili pw 1 tsp
Oil 2 tbsp

1. In this recipe I am using cooked cocktail shrimps.But if you are using fresh ones then separate the heads,shell,devein and wash them well.
2. Now heat oil in a pan and add all the whole spices.Let them crackle then add sliced onion and fry till golden in colour.
3. Add prawns,salt,red chili powder,lemon juice and toss them in the spices.Let them cook for 1-2 minutes(more if using fresh ones till they are cooked).
4. At this point add cooked rice and little salt.Mix all the ingredients gently and cook for 2 minutes.Serve hot.
