Prawn Herb Rice Recipe / Easy Herb Rice Recipe / Prawn Recipe

Herb rice is one such easy, quick and delicious lunch or dinner ideas that can be prepared for lunch box or parties. Eating rice in the same way (steamed with some stew/curry) is boring at times, but in spite of all these, there are few people who want to eat rice and go for biryani or pulao. So this rice is very helpful at those times, with very few ingredients. I have induced prawns, you can substitute them with chicken or vegetables or even serve it as plain herb rice.
