We are boiling the soya chunks in water before adding them to the biryani. We are doing this to get rid of the smell of the soya chunks. Also, we are adding little milk while boiling the soya chunks. This will help to remove the raw smell of soya chunks. Also, it gives a nice chewy texture.

Notes

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