Generally whenever we talk about biryanis, it is either mutton biryani or chicken biryani. And then again the next level belongs to the vegetable biryani. But whoever tastes the seafood biryani, will totally be blown away by it’s flavors.
The unique flavor, taste and aroma that comes from this prawn biryani recipe is simply amazing. It is very different in taste from the other biryani preparations. In sha ALLAH, someday I will share the fish biryani recipe as well.
The use of big prawns are very much desirable for making this prawn biryani recipe. Especially the really big ones. I don’t mean the tiger prawns but the other variety that is pretty big. But you can always make it with any size. As I didn’t find the big prawns when shooting for this post, I have used whatever was available.
But whenever I get the big ones, I definitely do not skip to make this delightful dish. Prawn Biryani recipe is my personal favorite.
