    Without knowing more about the recipe you are using, I will offer some general observations about biryani's.

    Most biryani dishes are a combination of spiced meat and vegetables and a rice component. The spiced meat and vegetables are layered between layers of flavored rice. Most recipes call for partially cooking the spiced meat and vegetables as well as the rice so that they can be combined into a final dish and baked until ready to serve. I have also seen and eaten where the spiced meat/vegetables are combined with the rice and then baked jumbled together. Both were tasty but I believe the jumbled one was less hassle and easier to make while the layered version is more traditional.

    To make a layered biryani, prepare the spiced meat/vegetables separately from the flavored rice. Divide the meat/vegetables into two servings and the rice mixture into three servings. Place one serving of rice into a greased casserole dish. Layer one serving of meat/vegetables on top of this rice layer. Repeat alternating rice and meat/vegetable until rice covers top of casserole dish. Make sure that when each layer is added to the casserole dish, you use the back of a large serving spoon to press layer into the casserole dish so that each one is compressed over the previous layer. This will help to make a more dramatic presentation when serving from the casserole dish onto each diner's plate.

    I hope that I have helped to answer any questions you may have had. Please let me know if I can be of further service!

    Take care,
    Michael

    Hello Celticevergreen, thanks for your reply and suggestions,

    Hi alankar and welcome to the forum.
    I'm wondering if you are having problems because your mixtures are too
    wet or too dry. Wet mixtures would be especially runny. As Celticevrgreen
    said, it's hard to be sure without knowing more about the recipe you are using.

    And dry mixtures would be very crumbly, just fall apart....
