Or can it be cooked together? This recipe sounds really easy. Reply BRINDHA April 2, 2006 - 12:00 amHAI, REALLY EXCELLENT RECIPE! EASY 2 MAKE. WE LOVE IT, MAKE IT AGAIN AND AGAIN. THANKS A LOT….

Reply Nitasha February 11, 2008 - 12:00 am Very quick work & tastes pretty good too!But Basmati rice cooks fast.So,for 2 cups Basmati rice,add around 2 1/2 cups water.Wait for 2 whistles & then check the rice.If it`s slightly underdone,sprinkle water and shut the cooker again for some minutes.(No more whistles).U can put seperately boiled basmati rice to the finished biriyani to soak up the excess water & to contain the soggyness of rice. Reply jaya July 5, 2007 - 12:00 amhi there, very good recipe….quick to make and delicious…just wondering whether this is more like pulao rather than biryani??
