3 cups basmati rice, washed and soaked for 30 minutes
3 medium onions, thinly sliced
To grind coarlsly:
1" Cinnamon Stick
4 Green Cardamom
1 Black Cardamom
1 Maratha Muggu
Add safforon starnds to 1/4 glass of warm milk and mix well. Sprinkle this mixture to the layered biriyani.
Put a banana leaf(I used tin foil instead) on the top of this layer and keep some weight on it.
Close the lid of pressure cooker and keep it in medium flame for 5 mins.
Mix well and Serve hot with raita or your favourite curry.
Instead of coconut milk you can use yogurt.
Try using little bit of mint paste which adds wonderful frgrance to the biryani.
