Kraidsieh (Prawns cooked with Rice & Bell Peppers - Lebanese - Style)

           This is a traditional Lebanese cuisine where the prawns are cooked along with rice and bell peppers to complete the picture. It is a very easy and a simple dish but with full of flavours, especially coming from the saffron. You can also add any other veggies you prefer. It is almost like a one-pot meal and can be served with any meat or barbeque dishes.

  • 1 cup rice, soaked for 30 minutes
  • 2-3 tbsp. olive oil
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 8-10 large prawns
  • 1 cup assorted bell peppers, chopped
  • salt to taste
  • 1/4 tsp. pepper powder or to taste
  • large pinch of saffron

           Heat oil in a pan and saute the onion till it turns translucent. Add the prawns and continue to stir fry till it changes colour.

          Now add the bell peppers and saute for a minute. Then add the rice, salt and pepper. Continue to saute for 1-2 minutes.

          Add 1/2 cups water and saffron and pressure cook for 1-2 whistles. Fluff it up with a fork and serve with grilled meat and / or barbeque dishes.
