Shrimp Biryani/Prawn Biryani

Today I am going to share with you something special ..it is one of our favorite dish: Biryani.Here I prepared the Shrimp biryani. This is very easy to prepare one and no need to prepare any side dishes (curry poriyal etc) for this. We can prepare a tasty & delicious dinner without much effort. 
It is a very common in our menu. During our last grocery shopping I bought the shrimp. I used some of them for the fry and some for the curry. There were still some shrimps in my freezer. Today i was confused what to prepare for dinner then i saw these cute shrimps at the freezer and finally decided to prepare  this biryani. i already mentioned it is very easy one but while cooking make sure that you have nicely sauted and cooked the shrimp before adding the rice and also the rice-water ratio should be in right propotion otherwise biryani becomes payasam(Yes, It happened to me when i was in my cooking nursery school:)). Here i pressure cooked the biryani.If u r cooking the rice in pressure cooker the rice water ratio is 1:2 (its for basmati rice)
We always prefer to buy the fresh shrimp so we usually buy it from one of the intrnational market here called Jungle Jim's.The best shop I found here in OH. We get any kind of food items from all over the world and the arrangement is really good.For each country has separate sections and they display one  or the other items which are unique to that country..Our Indian section there is an Autoriksha and Elephant. I always love to go to this shop because I can buy so many new stuffs from there.
About the biryani: The fresh shrimp will give nice taste but we have to cook thoroughly and also we have to peel the shell off and clean it.. but that's not a big deal.Let me share the recipe..hope u will try this.. If you are so busy but love to cook something at home just try this.sure it will be good hit in ur  family.
