Tips & Tricks

  1. Adjust the green chilli as you prefer.
  2. Usually for making ghee rice, we take water double the amount of rice, but for making biriyani, reduce the water by half cup because, when you keep the biriyani for Dum, little moist from masala makes it cook perfectly.
  3. Jeerakashala rice gives most authentic taste of malabar biriyani, but if you cant get it, you can use basmathi rice.
