Prawn biryani in pressure cooker, Ramadan recipes

A flavorful and delicious one pot meal prepared in pressure cooker. Yes this simple and quick to make prawn biryani can be made in very less time as pressure cooker comes as magic pan. I have already posted a pressure cooker prawn biryani recipe earlier involving little grinding but this one involves absolutely no grinding (if you have ginger garlic paste ready at home😁) so this I am posting this quick version of prawn biryani for Ramadan recipes(I know its very late) which I wanted to do for the past 2 weeks but absolutely couldn’t get it done. I am glad this recipe is finally here. This quick version can be made with veggies, soya chunks and with chicken too and works great on a working day and is a perfect lunch box recipe when served with plain chill curd/ simple onion raita. For this recipe I used small frozen shrimp/ prawn but can be made with big shrimp as well, mostly fresh ones taste more yummy. So let’s get to the making!
