Mushroom Biryani recipe

Mushroom Biryani  using seeraga samba rice, recipe step by step pictures and video, learn how to make Chettinad style Mushroom biryani in pressure cooker. Biryani is always a super hit in many houses. I wanted to try out Biryani using seeraga samba rice, a unique variety of rice used in South India for making Biryanis. Apart from making biryani, this seeraga samba rice can be used for making paal payasam, ven pongal, sakkarai pongal and curd rice too. I have tried Tomato biryani and Kuska biryani using this rice. The aromatic rice gives a nice flavour to the biryani and gives an authentic chettiand taste.
