    Hi friends,

    Im bored making the biryani using store-bought biryani powder. I was using everest masala. I want to know different versions of homemade biryani powder. Also let me know the quick way of making veg pulav in an electric rice cooker.
    This will help me a lot during those days when im not in a mood to cook in detail.

    hi pman, i never use biryani powder . this is the way i am making veg biryani:
    basmathi rice-4 cups(rice cooker cup)
    water-6 cups
    cloves-12
    elachi-5
    big ilachi-4
    biryani patta-2 or3
    cinnamon-6(big sz)
    nutmeg-2(make them into powder)
    japathri-few strands(don't add toomuch,it will gives you bitter taste)
    black jeera-optional
    green chillies-10 or 12
    ginger paste-2tbsp
    garlic paste-2tbsp
    cashews
    potatoes, carrots, green peas and onion slices
    paneer or tofu-10 to 15 pieces
    yogurt-1 cup
    salt-as your taste

    Wash rice well before cooking and keepaside
    place a rice cooker bowl on the stove top
    add ghee or oil(i prefer half ghee half oil).
    add all dry ingredients one by one.
    add ginger -garlic paste and fry it until raw smell is gone.
    Next add yogurt (fine) and stir well.Heat it for about 10 seconds now
    add cut vegitables, tofu and fry it for few mins.
    add rice and stir well.
    add water and mix it properly.
    add mint and salt.
    take this dish out of the stove and put it in the rice cooker. biryani will be ready in 15 to 20mins. if you want you can add dry fruits also.

    this is my mils recipe. if you want you can add coconut milk too. but you ned to reduce water. hop you like it.

    Hi vijaya,

    Thanks for the wonderful recipe. I know this version of the recipe. If i use the whole spices, my kids will refuse to eat saying it will take time to remove these whole spices from the plate. Hence i was looking for easy powder so that i can quickly whip up some pulav especially for the kids (lunch box)
    Thanks anyways.

    I have this book and the recipes look good but as yet have not delved into it adequately. You might find this helpful if you can run down a copy.

    You can find the recipe for Biryani masala powder in vahrehvah dot com. You can grind the spice ingredients & store for 2 to 3 months, using as & when required.
