    I tried Biryani. All steps were okay. But, when i put the rice into the serving dish. The color of rice was all mixed up, there where no white grains. Can you let me know why this happened?

    1. Mullai

      Did you sprinkle the saffron and color? The color of the rice will be a little mixed some orange, some yellow and definitely some white. Mixing to much while drizzling ghee could cause that. Layering gravy shouldn’t be too watery, it has to be slightly on the chunky side. Other than these I don’t see a problem, try again and let me know. Thanks.

    It turned out splendid.. I usually make non-veg biryani with shan sindhi biryani mix.. so used the same in this recipe as per your suggestion.. thanks.. I made “side gravy for biryani” with cauliflower( usually I make it with chicken bones) which also was yummy. Thanks for your wonderful recipes!!

      Thanks Thamizh for your feedback. I’m happy that it turned out great! Biryani side gravy with cauliflower sounds interesting I have to try that combination one day! Thanks again.

    So I assume we add biryani masala powder along with chili powder here. It is missed in the step I guess. Can I know any specific brand we need to use??

      Thamizh, Thanks for pointing out, I did edit and ofcourse it goes along with the chilli powder. Usually biryani masala’s add lite restaurant touch to the recipe and I used Shan brand which is very mild and taste good too. MTR and Everest, achi are little strong so adjust to 1/2 teaspoon or your taste. Hope this helps and thanks again for your feedback. Do try and let me know how it turned out!
