We love indian food, and found this recipe as a good starter. I have made it 2 or 3 times and have compared it with other biryani recipes I have found.
I think if I had a biryani spice mix maybe that would kick it up a notch, but as it is, I would increase the cumin, ginger, and garlic as well as the clove.
Other biryani's I have had have included cauliflower, carrots, peas, raisins and cashews and I include them in lieu of the potatoes. Since there is already rice, I don't see the need for another starch. I would also use ghee rather than oil. And last, I would use 3 or 4 tomatoes instead of only 2. I would look for a solution to the problem I had of cooking the rice, on a low setting, the rice at the top was crunchy and the rice at the bottom was soggy. Also, i like some heat in my indian food and this is completely without any spiciness to speak of...I would put a tsp of garam masala to give it some of the hot spice I anticipate when I eat indian food.
