Prawns Dum Biryani | Shrimp Biryani | Prawn Biryani Recipe | Dum Style Shrimp Biryani - Various kinds of Hyderabadi style Biryanis are famous and unique in their own way. Whenever the aromatic Biryani is made, a festive atmosphere is created at home. When compared to Chicken and Mutton Biryani, Prawn Biryani is simpler and is cooked very fast.

Generally, in Hyderabadi Biryanis, we use more or less the same masala ingredients, only the proportions vary. Prawn Dum Biryani with Mirchi Ka Salan will be a super hit for a weekend meal and on special occasions.

Tips

DUM:

  1. Prawn Biryani doesn’t need any Rice gruel for cooking on Dum like Chicken or Mutton, but the water which naturally Prawns have, is sufficient to make Dum.

  2. Add 3 tbsp water if you are making the Biryani with Sona Masoori Rice but it is not required if you are using Basmati Rice.

BASMATI RICE:

  1. Spread a layer of Rice cooked to 80 % on the marinating Prawns and leave it on Dum for the Biryani to get cooked in the water that Prawns naturally leave.

  2. When you mash the Rice grain between your fingertips, you should feel that it will be cooked in another 5 mins. That is when you consider it as 80% cooked.

SONA MASOORI RICE/ OTHER VARIETY RICE

  1. Rice should be 80% done irrespective of any variety that you use, but add 3 tbsp of water to this variety of Rice.
