How to make prawn biryani

Prawn Biryani is my most favorite Biryani than any other Biryani I make. I love prawns to the core and have lot of prawn recipes in my blog. Even my lil ones love this biryani as it has mild spiciness since we add the coconut milk instead of water. This coconut milk prawn biryani gives more richer taste to the prawns as well as Biryani.
