I have been eating this delicious Goan Prawns Pulao since my childhood. I am grateful to my mom and existence for providing me with such lovely food. I love sea food and any food which is tasty + made with love. I just crave and binge on such food. Prawns are easily available throughout the world. If prawns are not available you could even use shrimps. I haven’t added potatoes in this pulao. If you wish you can add them. Also half cup of coconut milk will give a great flavor to your prawns pulao. But I would like to stick to this basic recipe of Goan Prawns Pulao as it tastes amazing.

Goan Food is quite popular for its coastal food also for different kind of masalas used. Some famous Goan masalas are reshad masala, Xacuti masala, Bafad Masala and not to forget vindaloo masalas. Even Goan sweets are awesome however not that popular as the coastal food is. Some goan specialties in sweets are dodol, bibinca, doss, pinagri. I am a great fan of dodol its made with coconut and jaggery which just melts in your mouth.
