Biryani is great always, this is nice simple recipe and faster too becuase the rice is not cooked in the moisture. To make it better add yogurt (and of course adjust seasoning to your own taste) and bake( well sealed and around 160C) in oven, with half cooked rice (or even totalyl uncooked). This way you absorb mroe flavour in to the rice, but will take a lot longer to cook:)

Very good recipe if you are looking for a change from the usual chicken/mutton biriyanis. I prefer to reduce the oil and extra ghee in the recipe otherwise it will turn out far too greasy. Also, leave out the raisins as the taste clashes with the fish.

I Rate as excellent, even though I have not tried this Recipe. But looks good, I will try this week-end and will surely let you know my feedback. Above all, we all need to appreciate the time and effort others spend on posting their recipes. This is my note of appreciation. Small suggestion, I feel for 3 cups of rice 6 cups water is more...If you want the rice to be separated, then for 3 cups of rice, 4 1/2 cup water is enough. Anyway, Let me try and update it. Thanks Sai Ashok

This is a great recipe.It turned out very well,everybody enjoyed it.One thing i found is that the recipe doesn`t say when to add the garam masala.But since it was written in the gravy part of ingredients i just put it just before the gravy was complete.Anyway thank you for the recipe,we all loved it.

Note: while frying fish try to not fry crispy. Rather it should be just fried. Also, add a cup of chopped coriander and mint leaves to the gravy just before u add the fried fish. In my preparatio i add a paste of green chilli and coriander/mint paste to the gravy. That comes out well also. Try this if someone is looking for a variation.
