This spicy rice dish cooked in mouth-watering prawn curry is extremely easy to make in a microwave oven. A 1200-watt microwave oven was used for this recipe. Garnish with fried onions.

I would never make a microwave meal so i converted this to stovetop with rice separate and it was very good. Soon to be reposted with my stovetop directions

This was deeeelicious! I give it four stars only because I don't approve of the microwave. I made it on the stovetop with a few modifications. On med-low heat, I used a single pot and started by sauteing an onion until browned. I doubled the spices and added curry. I omitted the cinnamon and cloves because I don't care for them. After browning the onions and spices, I added the rest of the ingredients except the shrimp and I used vegetable stock instead of chicken cubes. I also added cauliflower florets and frozen peas. I cooked until the rice was almost done, then added the shrimp and cooked until opaque.

I give this five stars because not only is it delicious but easy to make! Next time I might try doubling the spices but it was great the way it was.
