Rice Cooker Shrimp Pulav

My mantra “Work Smarter not Harder”.  With a little effort you can achieve a crowd pleasing pulao.

Here is the List of Ingredients:

1. 3 Cups of Shrimp
2. 1 and half Cups of Rice
3. ½ Cup Oil

Remember this Mantra: Little less than 1/4 amount of Rice should be the quantity of Oil. Shrimp should approximately be double the amount of Rice.

4. 1 tsp whole Elaichi
5. 1 tsp Laung
6. 2 Bay leaves
7. 3 Whole Red Chillies

You can skip 4-8 and add ½ handful whole garam masala pack from indian store

18. Coriander Powder
19. 1 Cup Coridander
