Plain Biriyani

Whenever i doesnt feel like cooking but want to eat something tasty, i prepare this simple version of biriyani. Actually my hubby is a great cook. Whatever he cooks turns out delicious. He is the one who taught me this. Alu kurma, egg pulusu, mutton pulusu anything goes with this. As i told you i make this when i dont want to cook anything big. So, my combination for this simple biriyani is raitha...:)


Basmati Rice 2 cups (soak them for 1/2 hr)
Small Onion 1 (chopped lenghwise)
Green Chilli 4 (chopped lenghwise)
Cloves 3
Cinnamon 1 inch stick
Black cardomom
Coconut Powder 2 tbsp
Ginger Garlic paste 1 tbsp
Ghee 3tbsp
Water 4 cups


1. Switch on your electric rice cooker and put the ghee in the cooker vessel. Add cloves, cinnamon, black cardomom, bay leaves. When they start turning colour add green chilli and onion. Fry for a minute then add ginger garlic paste and coconut powder.

2. Add soaked rice without water. Mix well by adding salt. Then add water, close the lid and let it cook. Serve with any curry or raitha..:)
