      Made this last week. Could not review before. Very Very good Charishma. Only used dessicated coconut instead of the coconut milk(did not have it or any coconut at home). Use coconut milk in my regular prawn pulao too but this recipe is a little different and am glad I tried it. :) Thanks a million. Fay

      I relished the pulao. I had used less prawns, 600gms of prawns for 1 1/2 cups of rice is a lot.I also used more cocunut milk which made the dish quite tasty.
