Prawn Rice

Prawn rice is a simple rice dish I made one day for my kids lunch box. My children are not very fond of prawns and I thought it would be a nice way to include prawns in their diet. 
This is an easy and simple rice which tastes really good! You can make this with left over rice too.

Prawn Rice

1. Do not over cook the prawns. When the prawns are cooked, they will curl into rounds.
2. Add more green chillies if you prefer more spice. My kids do not eat spicy food hence I added very less.

3. Make sure you don't over cook the prawns.

Until next time,
