Follow the recipe and you will get it perfectly.Wow , I am trying this on this Sunday for my daughter.. They simply love Biryani... Hope It will come out as good .. Wish me luck buddy....
Yes the rice will cook in the moisture provided by the marinade. So ensure that there is enough water to cook it, and at the same time not enough to over cook itWow .. Thanks Aroy for suggestion.. I was just wondering about the oil...As far as rice is concern.. It is like "Kacchi briyani" ,half cooked rice, rest will get cooked while doing the "dum"..I assume
Thanks for the offer.Aroy, I remember once you were talking about buying earthen pots from Khurja. I will be in Khurja this weekend; tell me if you want me to buy something for you from there...
Thanks for the information. I too got similar information from the pot sellers in Saket. So now I have to find where the potters actually make the pots and get them to make some to my specification.Hi Aroy,
I talked to my ma about your requirements and she told me that this kind of earthen pots are indeed available. They are thicker than the normal water storage pots and have a smoother surface. The local word for them is handiya.
However she told me that Khurja is known for only ceramic and bone-china items (she must know, she had lived there for 30+ years, I was born there) The handiya you want are available anywhere, where there are kumhaars. And they must not cost much - about 150-200 was her guess.
You want to know anything else, just let me know
