We had this wonderful dish " Achari Prawn Pulao" in a restaurant last month. My hubby loved it so much I thought of trying this out at home . I had recently made a green chili pickle following one of Shobha 's recipes on "green chili pickle" . It came out really well. My hubby liked it even better this time :-)
