Microwaved Prawn Pulao

After a long day work, I fell like eating something authentic home-made Indian dish.But don’t fell like spending long time in the kitchen. My Mum used to cook prawn pulao with slightly fried boiled eggs ,mixed winter vegetables and garam masala.Suddenly I could smell that aroma in my house.Me and my sister had burned our tongues so many times,just because we could not wait till it cools down.Mum used to add green paper , carrots, beans in that pulao and cooked in a pressure cooker.I have skipped the vegetables and fried eggs just to avoid chopping and frying boiled eggs,because I am so tired. This dish takes 15 to 17 minutes to cook .By the time I freshen up my dinner is ready.But you need to have cleaned prawns, ready to cook in your stock
