Serves: 6


1 cup uncooked basmati rice

2 tablespoons unsalted butter

450 grams medium prawns, peeled (or try chicken or tofu)

Cook basmati rice in a saucepan following package directions; set aside. Melt butter in a large pot or in a Dutch oven over medium-high heat. Add prawns and salt to taste.
