I tried this recipe ..at first I was little apprehensive but the biriyani turned out really great. I made slight modifications like using Basmati rice, ground all the ingredients for marinade except mint and coriander and I just added them as garnish. After layering I popped into the oven for few minutes.

Hi... I have made biriyani before , but always used to wonder how we get that mouthwatering aroma we usually get when we order biriyani in a kozhikodan hotel... more than the taste I feel that its that aroma that makes us tempting and keeps pulling us in to those hotels... finally someone has come forward to share the secrets of the authentic kozhikodan biriyani with the exact ingredients and steps. The first day I tried out your recipe, even my neighbours were able to make out that I was making biriyani.Now they all think that I am a great cook... Thanks a lot for this wonderful recipe...expecting more of this kind... -Neenu

hi Mariyamma.. thanks for sharing the recipe.. It turned out beautifully and it was my first attempt at biriyani..But 1 point i wud like to add.. THIS is Not ENUF for 4 People.. i made the double of this and it was for 5 ppl and should say it was just enuf.. it also could be bcos it was very tasty, but still the amount looked very little for 8 ppl as i had doubled the quantity of all... Once again thanks for the recipe and hope u would share similar wonderful thgs u come across..

Very good recipie. Everyone enjoyed it and could not stop appreciating the divine taste. Reny - Aunty or Uncle are terms used out of respect for another. These terms are not only used to address older people. We have to have good upbrining to know the value of this.

When I made this recipe for the first time, my husband a keralite, commented while licking his fingers "This is the kind of biriyani that we get at the resturants in kerala". Thank you for this wonderful recipe. However, I used Basmati rice instead of broken rice as I don`t usually buy broken rice.

Fantastic recipe! I definitely reccomend trying it. Also try a small variation: a little less mint and a litle more coriander rather than 50/50.

Thanks for the great recipe. It was really wonderful. And I would like to make a comment to the users of the site. Just saw people assuming and addressing others as aunty and chechy. Surprisingly, i never saw anyone`s age mentioned in the recipe!!!! Just because someone has a traditional name dosen`t mean that they are too old for you guys to call them aunty. And anyways most of us browsing this site are all married. So does that mean we all have to be called uncles and aunties???? Come on , stop projecting yourselevs as babies and others tooooooo old for you

greaaaat! i was looking for a koyikkode style BEEF biriyani. i tried ur method with beef and hurraaaaay! here`s an alternative for the rice preparation: try water: rice proportion as 1.5:1 . boil water and after light frying onion and rice in ghee, add boiling water and then whole spices. simmer and cook. thx again
