  5. Nice recipe. But 1 cup off basmati rice will cook nicely in 1and half water right arthi?

  6. @AnonymousIf you soak the basmati, then it will cook in 1.5 cup of water. If u didn't soak then it needs 2 cups of water. You can follow any of these steps.

  12. Hi arthi, ur recipies r too gud n easy to follow. I usually cook biryani in pressure cooker following ur measurenent . But, the rice becomes mushy in the bottom. Plz advice.. I used it kee p in simmer for 15- 20 mts with double the quantiry of water.

  13. @Anonymousadd about 4 cups(For each cup of rice add 2 cups of water) of water and let it boil.

    Cover it and let it simmer for 1 to 2 whistle or for about 15 min.

  14. If i use a pot instead of a pressure cooker,then do i just mix the soaked rice with the onion mixture and pour water and set it to cook?
