Prawns Pasta Biriyani/Prawns Macaroni Masala

This is called as Pasta biriyani or Macaroni Biriyani in our side because it is similar to the procedure of making biriyanis not exactly but in an easier way.No Cashew nuts or raisins or fried onions are added but here we make a masala,then add the pasta and cover and cook for sometime.Also there is addition of garam masala and things and procedure similar to a biriyani.Here I have used Prawns but you can use Chicken also.For this you need

Macaroni          1 pack (400 g)
Prawns             300 g
Kashmiri red Chilly powder   2 tsp
Salt       as needed
Oil         for shallow frying + for the masala
