About Recipe

"Kolambi Bhaat"/Prawns Rice is an authentic cuisine from Maharashtra. This delectable and savory dish of Prawns and Rice is extremely flavorful and rich with a variety of spices , herbs and grated fresh coconut.This is an adapted version of the original recipe; I have prepared this dish with my own choice of ingredients and a delicious Orange Raita to go along with it. The preparation takes some time as it involves "Dum" cooking/Dum pukht, to be precise , which is a slow ,time-based method of cooking in which the pot or the container is completely sealed and the contents inside is cooked in "Dum" or steam to retain the flavors of the dish. Prepare this dish for lunch or dinner, for any special occasions/guest invitations.
