Note:

  • We don’t like the addition of whole garam masala , but if you like just temper with cloves and bay leaf .
  • The same procedure can be followed for Vegetable biryani too. Just replace soya chunks with Mixed vegetables .
  • Addition of coconut milk is highly recommended.
  • While grinding the masala you can add 1/4 tsp of garam masala  too.
  • My ratio for rice and water is 1: 1.5 cup.
