This is cooker top method. First let us prepare prawn masala. Meanwhile, wash and soak the basmati rice for 1/2 an hour.
For prawn masala 1.Clean the prawns and wash with turmeric powder for few times.
2.Slice the onions,tomato and green chilli.
3.In a kadai, Heat 1 1/2 tbsp oil and add 1/2 tsp fennel seed.
4.Add half sliced onions and tomato. Saute well.Add 1 tbsp of ginger garlic paste.
5.Now add the cleaned prawns and add 3 tsp of chilli powder,turmeric powder and required water and salt. Close the lid and cook until prawn gets cooked. Make it as little gravy like consistency.
For Biriyani
1.First boil the hot water. nearly 5 cups.
2.Keep the pressure cooker on the stove top. Add remaining oil and ghee.
3.Now add all the remaining whole garam masala which is mentioned above the ingredients table.Make sure you add 1/2 tsp of fennel seeds too.Saute well.
4.Add remaining onions,tomato,green chilli and ginger garlic paste. Saute well for 2-3mins. Add mint leaves.
5.Add 2 tsp of chilli powder and 1 full tsp of biriyani masala.Now add required salt and prepared prawn masala. Add the soaked basmati rice and make a stir gently. Pour the hot water till rice sink.
6.Close the cooker lid and keep in low flame. Allow it to cook for 5-10 mins. stir in the middle. Cook until the rice is done 90%.
7.Now the dum process, Keep the iron tawa and add water. place the pressure cooker on top of it. Let it cook until the biriyani is done. Finally add coriander leaves and serve hot with onion raita and egg. Yummy delicious spicy  prawn biriyani !!


1. You can also reduce chilli powder by 1 tsp and add 2 tsp of biriyani masala at the stage of preparing biriyani.
2.This method of preparing biriyani will be tasty only with prawns. Do not try with chicken or mutton. Only adding chilli powder is because the prawns needed to be spicy and tasty.
3.Do not add too much of water. Hot water is recommended since we are adding rice first. Do not skip this method.
4.My Chilli powder is the combination of red chilli powder and coriander(dhaniya) powder which is homemade. Do not add red chilli powder alone it gives you different taste and very spicy.
5.If you feel rice not cooked properly add required hot water at any stage while its in dum process.
