Hi Vaishnavi,This was one of the best pulao cum biriyani I have ever made. Everytime I made, it came out really well and my husband really liked and have also asked me to make it for one of our parties (its hard to get a compliment from my husband as he is one of the best cook I know). Thank you so much for this wonderful recipe. i did have a bit of problem in calculating the water and coconut cream proportions as I increase the qty of rice and that has resulted in some mishaps like burning a bit and not getting cooked fully etc., However, I am getting there…
