"Biryani is a bit of a project and is time-consuming, but I have never been disappointed with the results. Since it is such a festive dish, I usually make it for dinner parties. It is a huge hit."

black cardamom pods
onions, sliced thin
chopped fresh cilantro leaves
chopped fresh mint leaves

ground red pepper
7 1/2 cups
Excellent recipe, but a little modification, Add half teaspoon of Nutmeg, and one star Anise makes the flavour burst in your mouth. Note: you can also use Goat/Beef meat it works perfectly great with the same recipe
Very, very good and very authentic tasting. It does have a long list of ingredients, but my spice cabinet is pretty well stocked.
just did this recipe, I didn't add the green chile coz I dont eat spicy food, so I enjoyed it a lot. thank you.
This is my favorite Indian dish, along with the Palak Paneer. This recipe is fantastic! I love to drink mango lassi with it.
great biryani we all loved it.,
Wonderful recipe. It took me two and half hours to prep and cook. It turned out real good! Cant wait to make again.
Modification- Step 6: Instead of oil use Ghee(clarified Indian butter). When the onion start turning brown add a handful golden raisins followed by some raw cashews (Do not use the salted or seasoned kind like Planters-- you can get the raw cashews at the Indian stores, they are like $4.99 for quarter pound).
Great recipe. I left out all the hot spices because I wanted to give it to my 1 year old son. I also didn't have garlic paste and ginger paste. Also, instead of 5 onions, I just put ONE and it turned out perfect. Everyone in my family absolutely loved it even the baby.
I did try this two weeks ago and it was great. I used the regular cardamoms and also took the advice on the half tsp of nutmeg and one star Anise, during the frying of the cloves,cardamom and and cinnamon. I used veal as I had some in the freezer. The family really enjoyed it. Thank you.
