Quinoa Biryani Recipe Reviews - Allrecipes.com (Pg. 2)
Reviewed: Aug. 16, 2010
I happen to love the indian basmati rice version of biryani but this recipe was SO BLAND! Very dissappointing. I've had quinoa in salads and love it but I didn't feel that it's a good base for a biryani. I don't think I'll be making this again.

I found it bland. I thought it was because it was my first time using cardamom and I didn't really know how to use it, but reading other reviews reassure me. I might try it again if somebody has a great suggestion for tweaking it. I was so excited about eating a good biryani that night...:-(

most certainly is a great way to combine veggies with a natural protein-rich grain. Needs more spices unless you're serving small young ones.

Great and easy recipe. I used vegetable broth instead of water and add 3/4 cup of raisin. it adds a bit a sweet and flavour to it

This is a great base, but I found it bland as is. Other than caramelizing red onions in coconut oil while the quinoa was cooking, I followed the recipe exactly, but after tasting it I increased the cardamom (I used 1/2 tsp ground; 1 pod = 1/6 tsp), added salt and 1/2 tsp garam masala, and added raisins. The raisins really gave the dish a needed punch. Once these changes were made, it was delicious!
