1 cup coriander leaves 
1 med tomato chopped 
2 bay leaves 
2 potatoes cut in quarters 
1/2 tsp turmeric powder

Devein the prawns ,clean them well ,I have kept the tail and shell removing the eye and head part .
Apply salt lime and turmeric powder and set aside for 15 minutes.
Fry the potatoes and keep aside.
Grind the coriander leaves,chilli,cumin pepper ginger and garlic to a smooth paste adding little water .
Apply this paste to the marinated prawns and add whisked yogurt/curd and keep aside for an hour.
Fry half the onions to crisp golden brown and keep aside.
Heat a pot/vessel/pan add 2 tbsp oil ,use the same oil in which you fried the onions and potatoes.
Add the bay leaves and half of the onions fry until the onion turn soft add the tomatoes and fry until mushy .
Add the marinade except the prawns,we will saute the marinade paste well first.
Saute the masala over medium flame until the raw smell goes off and it leaves oil.
Then add the prawns and saute for few minutes .

Add the biryani /pulao masala and mix .
Add around 2 to 3 cups water and let it simmer over med flame
Add salt if needed,once it comes to a rolling boil switch the flame to sim and add the garam masala powder,give it a stir.
Switch the flame off .
Add the fried potatoes to the gravy .
Serve with pulav/jeera rice/parathas or bread of your choice .

You can use fully cleaned prawns We love to keep the shell of the head intact after cleaning it well as it adds much flavours.
I have used my homemade biryani masala ,you can use any brand .
