Take a wok add oil n little ghee and heat it then add whole garam masala and then onions and fry until golden color. Now add the marinated shrimp and cook until it is cooked then add yogurt and mix well. Reduce heat while adding yogurt. Then add the coconut milk and water and mix well add salt accordingly water must be salty. Now wen it starts boiling add soaked basmati rice and mix well n close the lid and cook in medium flame wen the rice is half cooked add the crispy onions ,cilantro n tomato pieces on top n sim the flame and cook until the rice is cooked properly.
