The water will evaporate, you should never let it dry. Try that there is always a finger over the rice (remember that the dish should be smooth). To do this, you are going to use the broth mentioned above, and if it is finished, use hot water.
When the rice is about 3/4 cooking put the peas, a few minutes later the prawns , and finally the small chopped parsley.

You should constantly try the rice, check that it is always smooth but not that it is pure water, and correct the salt so that it does not remain tasteless.
